There are several different types of RV awning lights; some are purely practical and some are party lights to add a touch of fun and glamour to your vacation evenings.
My first choice is Globe RV Patio Party Lights from RV Truck Parts online. These are very pretty soft white globes that will add charm and appeal to your RV camp site. They have a double plugged fused cord and 20 cute 3-1/4 inch diameter globe bulbs included in the set. They can be connected to other string lights and have a UL approved light cord which is 22 ft long. The price is 24.99 dollars.
This next set of RV awning lights is a real party pack and would make a great gift for anyone who goes camping or who lives in a motorhome. The lights are shaped like tiny motorhomes and come in four colors: red, green, blue and yellow. The lights are on an 8 ft string and there are 10 lights with 10 colored covers plus 2 extra bulbs. The motorhome bulbs measure 3-1/2 inches long x 2 inches high. The Motorhome RV Awning Lights pack is available on EBay and costs 16.93 dollars.
The American RV Company online has a lovely set of RV awning lights -- the Arts & Crafts Copper Lanterns Fun Lights no. 836782. These are very elegant old-style lanterns with a copper finish and a small white light bulb inside each lamp. They would give you a more sophisticated atmosphere to your evenings. The set includes a 12 ft string which holds 10 lights with 3 inch high covers to hang from your camper’s awning. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and have connectors on each end for up to three sets of lights to be used. There are 10 lights per box and are UL approved. This set costs 29.95 dollars.
My final choice is a set of RV awning lights on a string from Dayva SL164LED. You can use these on your RV awning or at home to drape around a patio canopy or deck awning in your backyard. The lights give out an attractive amber glow and will provide enough light for you to enjoy your evening meal by and a few drinks afterwards. There are 64 LED RV awning lights on a 37 ft linear string, with the lights spaced 7 inches apart, so there are plenty of them to make a pretty display and give you a good light if you want to read or write postcards.
This set of quality RV lights comes with a 6 ½ ft cord to connect to the battery power pack which uses 4 size D batteries which are not included in the pack. This type of lighting is very good because if one of the bulbs goes out, the rest will remain lit. The set includes: LED RV awning lights, battery power pack, pole adapter, wall adapter and hanging clips. They are weather resistant and have a one year manufacturing warranty. You can by them online at Comfort House and they cost just under 50 dollars.
One thing I’ve learned from experience about RV awning lights is that the cheapest ones don’t give out much light and can have very thin electrical cord, so they’re pretty much a waste of money. There’s no doubt that an attractive set of RV lights can create a very pleasant and cozy atmosphere in the midst of the darkness on a warm summer night. My final advice on the subject of RV awning lights is that it’s a good idea to buy the best quality you can afford, because you’ll find that they’ll give you the best light and last longer.
