5000k is pretty white
above 5000k and you're getting into the bluish color.
Sunlight is about 5000k.
I have found that 2500k-3500k to be too Yellow for my liking even more yellow than the incandescent bulbs, so that is why I choose the 4000-4500k bulbs or called Natural white somtimes.

It's a personal choice on the color temperature...which is why I have purchased 4 sets of lights for my trailer so far....this is getting expensive

My sticker shock is now kicking in and reminding me why I didn't go LED sooner!
Try eBay, they are MUCH cheaper than the domestic suppliers, which are probably Chinese LEDs anyway.

I hate to just buy a random product off of Amazon without some reference to what I'm looking for/at. Thoughts?

As cheap as they are many places, they are cheaper on eBay. Color is expressed many ways. Warm white would be it. Actually I think that is about 3000 k in light temperature. Bright daylight white is about 6000 k. Stands for degrees kelvin I think. Smd is I believe the number--- of little LEDs on the bulb.. amount of light is lumens. You do not get as much tech detail on the cheaper eBay sites, but that should help . You save a ton of amperage if on battery and a ton of heat. Get er done.

Are you replacing your bi-pin lights? I tested some that were a couple of mm to short and they would fall out during travel. Please PM what works for you.

I bought these last year after they were recommended by a member here and found they're almost identical in colour to original bulbs.

I also bought 2 brighter bulbs, but found they were a bit too bright for us.
