Where are those and how can you tell the difference? I thought I got the one the first guy suggested.

It is not clear from the eBay ads that there are several different variants of LED strip lights. While they all (kinda) work the same, there are differences.

Some are weatherproof, some are waterproof, some are made from 5050 type LEDs and some have a different type LED called a 3528.

They all will work, so you did not "do wrong."
I like the 5050s because they are brighter.

I got the 3528 lights and they seem plenty bright to me. Installed last weekend while camping. Think they turned out good and are much greeter than hanging lights or laying our strand of rope lights out each time we set up. Wired into the back of a 12v recep in the basement.

Very nice. I've never seen a camper with a huge cut out so you can see the kitchen like that. Cool!

Ah, I did not realize what that was. I did see one of those a few weekends ago and thought it was fabulous. We just purchased an old Coachmen and there are no frills. It was low mileage and affordable and in very good condition...I hope. We haven't really used it yet, just one over night down the street as a test.

The outside kitchen imo is the best feature they've come out with in awhile.
Well worth the money !
