The Vagabond "Corncob" Exterior Light
Custom Vintage Trailer Parts
My past experience in molding and casting began as a designer for Fernbank Science Center Museum in Atlanta in the mid1970s. My forte was molding and casting amphibians, reptiles, and fish. I subsequently taught design for over thirty five years retiring recently from the University of Georgia to devote my time to making parts and restoring trailers.
I started restoring my personal trailers part time since 2002 and in that process needed lenses and parts for my Casita, Wally Byam Holidays, Airstreams and other trailers which I simply could not find. I searched the new materials and made the new lenses I needed. Flat learning curve but I got there. I began helping other vintage trailer enthusiasts I met at rallies by casting lenses and fixtures for their trailers as well. I have made exterior lights for several trailers including the Spartan and the Vagabond which included the hard to find corn cob lens for the exterior door fixture.
In addition to the lenses needed on several of the older Bargman lights I have also made replicas of the fixtures as well. The Bargman tail light and tag light fixtures were used on numerous trailer brands including the Shasta, Scotty, and Va Ka Shun-Ette, and rarer Schult, Palace, and Alma trailers.
If you have a part you would like me to consider please email me at:
These 110 volt fixtures come with an LED bulb "Lifetime" rated by the manufacturer at 50,000 hours. The fixtures and lenses are modeled after the original side lights and cast in a two part polymer with a hardness rating similar to hard-hat material. They are finished in Titanium Silver.
The Fixture measures 5” x 3 1/4”
