Lightbulb Interior candlestick light fixture

I need to replace the bulbs for the interior light fixtures that look like candlesticks. I would LOVE to use LED replacements, but the lampshades look like they wouldn't be compatible (unless someone makes an old-timey LED replacement for the 1076 bulbs). I so rarely use these fixtures (especially since they didn't work, LOL) that it wouldn't be a crisis to keep incandescent bulbs, but I'm wondering if anyone else has run into a good solution...

Hi, bdette - I don't have that kind of light in my trailer, so I don't know what shape they are. I did do a search for 1076 LEDs and came up with this source (and others): https://www.amazon.com/1076-LED-Auto.../dp/B007VX2KIO

- Jack

Hi Jack, you had better amazon search foo than I did, but I finally found a 1076 enclosed LED light for the fixture that had the same shape as the original--all so that the lampshades can clip on to the bulb. Arriving soon....

I found and installed new LED bulbs which had enclosures like the old fashioned 1076 bulbs. They look good and I am ridiculously pleased with the result.

those are nice and retro. I had one 120vac inlet on the outside top, and a double socket inside, hooked up to a 25 amp screw in fuse, no lights in it at all. that was it. lol
those look very nice. look to old for me tho.

Default Same lights as mine

Those are the same lights as my 1990 Classic. We haven't converted them to LED. I've had fun over the years twisting my body to pain them Gold again. Later when we did our repair DH figured out how to take them off the wall. If you need new shades they can be found at Hobby Lobby or some of the craft stores. I got mine from HiLo and paid a "Bloody nose". Then after that I saw them in the craft for much cheaper.

Amazon, of course, is where I found the bulbs.
