Some of the new LED lighting is excellent.
We use VERY bright units on the race car light bar.
Here are some inset ones from e-trailer.
There are many others.
Miro-Flex Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn - LED - Waterproof - 12 Diodes - Red Lens Optronics Trailer Lights STL22RB
I have my motorcycle mounted at frame level on my 2251.
I can see my lights through the gaps very nicely.
I have newer LED taillamps on my unit and don't really have a need for additional lighting but I put a small LED in the center of the rack for safety since it sticks out a few feet from the rig..
Looks bright at night. Sorry I don't have a photo at night.
