First off, there's a thing or two, to check before spending money on new headlights which, may or may not, improve your night vision. On older coaches, such as your Winne, it's kind-of a known fact that the wiring lead to your headlights is both too long and, has a fair amount of voltage loss due to it's length. You see, they (the coach builder) often has and uses, pre-determined harness' and sub-harness's.
And, in many cases, those harness's are way too long for the application which, accounts for some pretty good voltage loss. When voltage loss occurs, the headlights suffer because they're not getting full voltage.
So, one of the first things to check here is, the ACTUAL voltage at your headlight connection. If you're getting less than 12.75V, your headlights will be dimmer than they should. If you're getting around 13v, then you're good and, your headlights may in fact, be wearing out and are not as bright due to age.
But, if you are getting low voltage, there's a sort of simple check to see if you can get the stock ones brighter. All that's needed is a length of around, 10GA wire that's long enough to go from the battery to your headlights. Then, with your headlights on low beam, and that 10GA wire attached temporarily to your positive battery post, then be careful and touch the other end of that wire, to the exposed section of the low beam tang, on one of the headlights. It helps if the coach is aimed at a building, garage, anything that will reveal the brightness of before and after the test.
Now, if you find that the wiring is good, all the way to the headlights and, you're getting good voltage (at least very high 12s or low 13s) then yes, you may need to acquire new headlights. And, there are numerous new versions of LED headlights out on the market now. Good luck.
