EPENDYDAD -- so what bulbs did you end up going with and liking the best? Your last few posts state that you went with two different bulbs throughout the camper?
One being the round cylinder, and one being the flat pancake kind.
I am ready to pull the trigger, but I need like 50-60 bulbs if I want to do all of them.

Wow, I did that second link completely wrong. I have only used the round cylinder:

Ah okay...got it!
Do they really fit in the fixtures alright? That picture you posted with the led and 921 really shows the difference in size!

It's all about lumens. The more lumens, the brighter the lights. What I've seen in the past is the brighter the bulb, the more it costs. That being said, they are getting cheaper.

I wonder if those pancake style LED would work better? Wouldn't that force more light downward instead of the the circular type?

Maybe. The reason I went for cylinders is that the fixture is white which (in my theory) reflects and spreads out the light that shines up against it giving you "more" light.

At least... that's what I'm telling myself.

I noticed in your pictures yours seem to have a metal reflective material behind the bulb. Mine does not have that. It's just the plastic behind the bulb so I don't get any reflection from the back side.

I just put these in the other day. I can't see a difference in lighting between these and incondecent bulbs, although these are a little bit brighter. I ordered 10, and need another 12 but wanted to try them first. I'll be ordering the rest soon!
