Tail light lens torx size

Hello all, I have a tail light out and when I went to remove the lens to get to it, I ran into a bit of confusion. They sure look like torx head screws, but a 15 was a little too small and a 20 was a little too big. To the best of my knowledge, there isn't a torx between those two. Thoughts?

He's correct, it is a Torx drive but it's an 8 point and not a 6 point. There are several others like this also on the motorhome.

I had the same issue a while back and called the factory and they told me to use a square drive. I tried it and it worked fine. I found that they mix torx, square drive, and phillips head screws in the build.

Not our problem if you don't know the correct name. Has been a robertson for 106 years in Canada.
Canadian P. L. Robertson invented the Robertson screw and screwdriver in 1908 and received patents in 1909 (Canada) and 1911 (U.S. Patent 1,003,657).

Well. The Germans made the triple square. And Canadians made the Robertson.
