I agree. As a renovator, I try and replace the housings with new, preferably a more modern Projector type. The plastic lens on these OEM houses just looses clarity and is a lot of the issue.

A little research and (I assume the class A) I think your headlights are from a 2003 Toyota Highlander, Dorman 1592003.
AS for the bulb, I have found that the aftermarket LED replacements are not bight enough. I like HID much better in a 6000K color.
My two cents

I take it back, I found a projector replacement, $200 more for the pair, but it will be worth it in light to the road.
Toyota Highlander 2003, Black LED DRL Bar Projector Headlights by Lumen, it appears to be right. $288 at Amazon

LED Upgrade complete

Well folks! The LED conversion is complete, well sort of since my fog lamps are next LOL. I decide to stay with the manufacturer I had which is trusted name brand, so I installed Philips HL9005XULED for the high beam and HL9006XULED for the Low.

But before installing them, I decided it was time to restore the composite light assemblies. They werenít terribly yellowed, itís just that the previous owner hadnít done a very good job with his attemp and had left them messy looking. Anyway after using a little elbow grease, I have to say I was extremely happy on the way they turned out.

Only after I was happy with the first step, did I venture to install my new LEDís. They were easy enough to install, except for trying to get two arms through the front hatch to fasten the little power supplies with tie-wraps. Because I was concerned about headlight aim, which some of you commented about, I could tell from simply looking at mine, they would require adjusting. So I found a really good web page to help, used the garage door with tape as advised and followed their directions. Although I wasnít impressed with how little adjusting options Winnebago offers, I was able to sight them in pretty well and the light quality was awesome. I guess the true test will be a night drive on a two lane road.

Anyway, thanks for everyoneís input and sorry if I didnít respond to everyone. I must say for a first time Motorhome owner, this site is really valuable.

Thanks and talk soon!

Phil

Wow, those are spendy $80-$90 a bulb.
In all this, the difference you see is mostly on the color change, from a dull yellow to brilliant white. Makes a huge difference.
Good job on the housing's lens also, that too will make a big diff

Hi E4,

Thanks and yes they weren’t cheap, so I hope the quality is there. You can never trust quality these days. Anyway, the lenses did clean up really well so that will help. And the white light is the same I have on my explorer and it’s hard to beat.
Looking forward to Holidays and hitting the road!!

Happy travels, Cheers!

Phil

Check your voltage. I have Hellas, but only getting 10.7 volts at the headlight. I'm working on a relay and heavier wiring for a fix.
