the light issue 
Hello!
I want your help people. Please, give some tips about changing all current lamps to LED.
I have a travel trailer. We often use it with my family. I want to upgrade it somehow and start with the light.
I understand that it is pricy, but maybe there will be some discounts or sales before Christmas.

Re: the light issue 
I did the same thing, they are pricey, but getting cheaper, first, you don't have to change the entire light fixture, you can just change the bulbs.
You need to find out what type of bulbs you have, most of mine are the "bayonet" type, they look like little flat wedges. There are many sources, this is just one; https://www.superbrightleds.com/ , i've also bought them from ebay for much cheaper, but they are from china & may or may not last as long. I bought some of these from ebay; http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-x-T10-168-194-68-SMD-LED-License-Plate-White-Car-Turn-Signal-Corner-Light-Bulb-/160994676585?hash=item257c07cf69

Re: the light issue 
bukhrn,
thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, I think that I will leave my current fixture and upgrade just the lamps. For indoor usage I need around 35 lamps. Maybe I will wait for Christmas sales and but it locally. I do not want to order online. As a rule, we do not stop in a parks with hookups, so I need an outdoor light. I found this lamp with fixture https://www.mrosupply.com/lighting/lighting-fixtures/sensor-light-fixtures/1431490_stl360_rab-lighting/ Can it be fixed as an outdoor light?

Re: the light issue 
Not sure about using that light, as it is a motion sensor light, & pricey , I don't know how big an area you want to light, (your campground neighbors may not be appreciative of your lights glaring into their area).
You might want to consider something like these, they light your awning area and because of where they mount, are less intrusive. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/awning-rope-light-with-track-18/69032
