Light board - 6ft, 13 PIN, Reverse Light, LED

Has anyone seen a 6 foot, 13 pin, with reverse light all LED light board?

I am struggling to find this set of options, I can find it in 5ft or without LED's or a 7 PIN verstion

I can see reasoning behind 6 foot board, what's your reasoning re the 7 and 13 pin.


You can get a converter as I have with my Audi, 13 Pin on Car, 7 Pin on Trailer.

Just because I keep losing the 7pin to 13pin adaptors, and its possibly another point of failure.

Just seems that if my current light board is knackered and I need to replace and I have a 13 pin car I may as well get a 13 pin board.

Lets me add a reversing light as well - that will come in handy the few times people are stopped behind me and I need to reverse - saves damaging the prop on the car bonnet!

This one is winning so far, but not LED

6ft Trailer Lighting Board c/w fog and reversing lights, 10m cable & 13 pin plug | eBay

I want a 6 footer so that i can still use the poles on the current trailer without any modifications

Have to say Steve, mine is starting to fall apart, the plastic of the trailer board is getting brittle, so I am going to get a 6foot length of wood/ply, and re-attach lights and cables.

I did that in the past, but it was more hassle than it was worth in the end.

I want to upgrade to LED as well and it seems cheaper to buy a full new board than all the bits.

It amazes me how sh*te these trailer boards are also they would be much better if they used screw fit bulbs instead of bayonet fitting which would cope much better with all the bouncing about a trailer does.

Cant disagree, however I have lessened the failure of the bulbs by rubbing them down with emery cloth at beginning of the season.

I suspect you'd be better creating your own or going for permanent attachment. You can have whatever you want light wise, size it to fit perfectly and cable it to the correct length with the socket you want.

You shouldn't loose the convertor socket -- leave it on the trailer board!
