In our last bus ‘Home’ …we used kerosene lamps a lot for our primary lighting.
I picked up a bunch of used brass marine gimbaled mounted lamps from a guy who was re-fitting his sailboat.
I really liked them for their restful lighting effects.
Here’s a pic of the new ones we bought for Latcho Drom ….which we’ll use in our trailer.

I picked them up online from this site.
For many years RV manufacturers put LP gas lamps in all their rigs …they don’t anymore because people tend to be lazy and just want to flick a switch these days.
But even so…
Millie & I put them in our van conversions ….and they work mostly fine.
Eventually after using them for some time, the mantles do tend to develop holes and fall apart from vehicle vibration.
We always carried a couple of replacement mantles.
Here’s a page with some RV styled LP Lamps …they’re not at all pretty looking ,like the Lehmans model …but their the ones RV companies used to use…
