Today we are going to review Part Number RVST51. This is the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light with a License Plate Bracket. This is a multi-function stop, turn and tail light with a license plate light on the bottom and mounting tables for the license plate. This is a molded plastic housing and a durable lens which will provide all-weather protection against corrosion. This light does feature a replaceable snap on lens and an easy to replace bulb. The Bulb Number would be a 2057.
On the mounting bracket, it does use these four holes which are 7 inches on center. Center to center is 7 inches and this way would be 3-1/8. The wiring is a 3-wire system which would be a white wire for ground, the black wire for the tail lights and the green wire for the stop and turn signal. This tail light is weather and corrosion resistant. The overall length is 8-5/8 inches.
The width of just the light is 4-5/8 inches and the depth on the light is 2-1/16. Also, the measurement from the top of the light down to the end of the bracket measures 6-5/16 inches. One last measurement; the distance from the license plate bracket is the normal standard measurement but these holes are basically 7 inches on center. Now what I am going to do is hook it up to a power supply so we will be able to show you the brightness of the light. Basically we will do white for the ground and do black for the tail light.
There is the brightness for tail light. Then we will hook up the stop and turn and this will show you the stop and turn. Now what I am going to do is turn off the overhead lights to show you this is the tail light and that would be the stop and turn. That should do it for Part Number RVST51.

Right product, right price. Easy install, perfect fit. I got both left snd right tail lights, including shipping for less than a single light at Camper's Inn. The only suggestion I can make is they should include some form of soft gasket material to prevent water from getting behind the and possibly entering the hole in the trailer where the wires come through. I used a general purpose weather stripping putty for this purpose but a form fitting gasket would be a nice improvement. etrailer.com, I'll be Baaack. 142946
Product showed up in a reasonable time frame and worked perfect. It wasn't the right size but that's because I was lazy and didn't take the time to go measure so that was my fault, not etrailer.com but I was able to just drill a couple holes where I needed them and mounted it anyway and it works great. Price was great as well, I'll definitely include etrailer.com in my list of places to shop and price check for my RV needs. 134791

The new light arrived promptly, (about 3 days from order), and matched the original perfectly. The tag bracket is more robust than the original, which leads me to believe it will last even longer than the factory assembly. I would recommend this product as a replacement to anyone, but would also recommend etrailer.com for any other trailer accessory purchase. 129892

Received the light sooner then expected, Already installed; perfect replacement all holes lined up. Only had to cut wires on old light and installed plug-in connectors on new light and existing wire harness. Only wish the license plate brackets were steel instead of plastic. As always happier then a pig in mud with etrailer! Thanks for being there when I need anything!! 165530

Light fixture exactly as advertised and screws aligned with Existing holes. Would have liked new mounting screws And new wiring connectors included but did ok with materials I had at home. Re-caulked all around fixture including joint between Slant mount on trailer and the flat mount tail light fixture. 92710
I use an LED bulb instead of the supplied incandescent one. Nice unit and does the job very well and less expensively than a dedicated LED unit! License plate bracket fits a standard license plate so it's a breeze to use! 208671
Good basic tail lights. They easily replace other lights that have the same mounting screw spacing. Much cheaper than similar lights at local dealers. 168865

The trailer lights were of very good quality, I like the sockets that the bulb goes into. They were an excellent price and was shipped to me super, super fast. I have ordered from here before and I am a Happy Customer. I can't install them yet as we are still winter here. Thank You. 128275

What can I say... these lights are "replacements" and not the OEM lights, but they are higher quality and better looking than the originals. Etrailer shipped them right out... they were shipped out the day I ordered them and on my doorstep 2 days later. When I took the originals off, I noticed they were in place by rivets, and I was nervous about drilling them out of my ABS trailer. However, it was no problem at all, and I'm so glad I took on this project. I replaced 11 lights and both brake lights, and it has given my 1996 trailer a much needed facelift. The old lights were tired, and the bases were black. The new lights have white bases and they they are MUCH brighter and more vibrant. The lenses fit snug. Oh, and the price was incredible. Great transaction. 78422

This item is an OEM replacement, the same item originally used. I could not be more pleased to have found it at etrailer.com. Installation was easy. I will look to etrailer first in the future for replacement items. 128074

This is an exact replacement for my broken light. Old light was taken to task when lifting cover off of trailer and it was caught in the license plate. Tugging on it was a disaster, broke both tabs for license. 155315

Exactly like the ones on my 97 camper! Smooth install and freaky fast shipping! Etrailer is my go-to place for my trailering needs! 87726
thank you so much, our replacement light was an exact match! quick and easy to switch out with the old one too. 77352

My husband broke the original tail light license plate bracket on our travel trailer when he hastily yanked the cover off this Spring and the license plate got caught up in it. I can't believe I was able to find this replacement part on your web site so easily -- exactly the same part as the original! Ordering was a breeze and the part arrived right on time. We successfully replaced this in just a few minutes, tested the brake lights and blinker, and it works like a charm! I'm thinking of buying a spare in case he breaks it again next year. I will definitely do more shopping on this site -- we are completely satisfied with our purchase. Thank you! 138662

After working on the old lights on my camper numerous times just prior to leaving on a trip and while traveling, I decided it was time to replace all of the lights. I purchased two new tail/brake lights, and four new side markers. The total price including shipping was just over $28 (I should have done this a long time ago). The lights arrived within 3 days of being ordered, and I was able to install them fairly quickly. I am so happy that I now have all six lights working perfectly, and shouldn't have to worry about them for a long time 16915

This is a replacement piece for my Palomino Pony pop up camper. The original worked, but the silly plastic lic. Plate holder cracked up from Sun exposure and wasn't secure anymore. This is of the same design, although not exactly the same lense. I bought the other side just so they'd match. Seem to be as good as the original. I didn't give it the best rating just because I don't think much of the original design. This will no doubt have the same problem in the future. Transaction was easy and parts were as ordered. 152274

This product is exactly as presented. I installed this product on my Flagstaff Pop-up camper and it worked perfectly. The mounting holes and wire colors were an axact patch to replace the original equipment. The price was about 50% of the originals and is a superior product in my opinion. I removed the cover lens and applied a coat of chrome metallic paint to the lamp mounting surface and this gave a reflective and produced a brighter glow. This is a small improvement to a near perfect product. 51354
I replaced the tail lights on my travel trailer with the Optronics Trailer Lights - RVST50 & RVST51 for half the price of other name brand lights. The installation was easy and the lights worked great. They are bright and easy to see, both day and night. My only complaint is that the lens cover may be a little too tight of a fit. I was afraid I was going to crack the lens pressing it onto the base but it snapped into place without any problem. I suppose that is a good thing after all. 211029
Very prompt service, excellent shipping and communication from the sales team. I ordered multiple items at once and the staff bundled them all in one shipment and had them shipped the same day I ordered. Each product was exactly what I needed and as research will show, they have the best prices on the web. Couple that with free shipping and it's impossible to not recommend this company to all. Thanks etrailer staff!! Semper Fidelis Gunnery Sergeant Scoggin United States Marine Corps 12373
Replaced old original tail lights on 91 Dutchmen TT. Much brighter and I don't have to hit the lights before each trip to make them work. Easy to install, the only problem I had was these mounting hole didn't match up with original holes so I had to seal old holes and make new ones. Didn't come with directions so you'll need to remember or label the wires as they come off old lights. one draw back is the license plate holder is plastic, not sure how it will hold up over time. 200027
First, the price is amazing. I was thrilled to find a pair of lights for such a low price. Especially lights that will put me back on the "right side" of the law. (My tags were not illuminated) The lights came very quickly and the tracking information was very specific. I had a quick install question and was on and off the phone with Vince in less than five minutes. I am glad I found etrailer. The service and prices are great. Best, MJE 222333
by: Pete S.04/26/2013
I purchased these two lights as replacements for the unit on my pop-up Viking camper. Excellent product for the price. Delivery was much faster than I had expected. The only possible fault I can imagine is that the wiring leaves the body on the left side of the lamp assembly where, of course, my camper has the hole on the left. The wires are just (barely) long enough to be routed and enter my camper. One inch more would have been great. 78040

This is my first time ordering from etrailer.com. I am extremely pleased. The item I purchased was generic (could have gotten oem at double the price from same vendor) and it fits and works perfect. Heck, I think it is more solid than the original one. Extremely fast and reasonably priced shipping. I highly recommend this vendor and I will return. Bottom line, extremely pleased, highly recommended! THANKS!! 145848
I have a 1999 coachman 5th wheel and somehow the tail light license plate holder became broke i did not think i would find the same one but i did and for a great price. Installed and working fine 85873

I was searching for some replacement tail lights for my vintage 76' Scotty Sportsman, these turned out to be a perfect fit (size) They do feel alittle fragile especially the license plate posts, but they seem to be more than tough enough once installed. I will definitely be using E-Trailer again for future purchases. My next project is to replace the teardrop running lights on top. 146728
Place my order one day and received two days later!!! The perfect OEM match for my RV. I do wish the manufacturer would fix this problem by replacing these plastic clip with metal clips. These tabs don't last, but I guess that is how they make their money. Can't blame etrailer.com for that!! They are the best!!! And the price was right!! Thanks etrailer.com!!!!!! 238676
by: Ralph L.08/26/2013
The license plate holder was exactly the right fit and replaced the original perfectly. Because it is new and my other lens is 14 years older the red color is brighter. I'll be ordering another replacement for the other side to make them match. I couldn't be more pleased with the whole process from etrailer - it was easy ordering and everything came in a timely manner! 96985
There was a question on what size these tail lights really were that was listed on the website. I had called customer services, and verifed which was the correct size, customer services was courteous, and efficient. I was really please on the prices of these tail lights, and how fast I recieved them, not to mention how easily they were to replace on my RV. 75974

After we lost a lens on our OEM lights on our Rockwood Mini Lite, I bought a set of new lights, this item and the matching one for the other side. They are a bit larger than the OEM lamps. They were easy to install and fit well in the same space as the OEM. My husband said the camper wire colors didn't match up exactly but it was easy for him to figure out. 167062
I have used etrailer for several years now, and have no complaints, product that is received, is exactly as advertised. Parts are packaged well and delivered without any delays. If I have any questions, their customer service is always available with plenty of knowledgeable, and helpful service. I will continue to use their service In the future. 239713
The RVST51 travel trailer stop, turn and tail light with license plate light and bracket is an exact match to the old one, so it works out great for me as a replacement. I couldn't be more pleased with how well etrailer responded to by request. I will be sure to do business with etrailer in the future as I have other needs for my travel trailer. 198532
After long rode trip, placed our travel trailer in storage unit only to recheck on it to find some knuckhead had broken our left back light. Checked on the internet using the numbers from the right light and found replacements at etrailer.com. Ordered new lights and received within a week. The price is right and the service is spot on. 232791
We recently purchased a 16 yr old travel trailer. The tail lights were working but the plastic holder behind the left tail light, is also the mount for the license plate. It needed replacing. etrailer had the exact part and shipped immediately. Installed and ready to roll. Great company to do business with. Linda from Georgia 279606

This tail lamp assembly perfectly replaced one that had rusted out on our Forest River pop-up camper. Installation took about 15 minutes. The price for this item is very reasonable, and shipping was quite speedy. This tail lamp was part of my first order ever with etrailer. I will definitely do business with etrailer again. 196747
Installed two new taillights on my pop up camper after an incident broke one and was very pleased with the fit and look of these lights. Also the installation was very easy making the whole transaction very successful. I would do a picture but camper back in the garage because winter in western NY. is not quite over. 178560

Exactly like the ones on my RV from the factory! So... Very easy to install! Good quality & fast delivery! Great Company to deal with! Seems like they are right on top of all my orders.... Will recomend to friends & will buy from them again for sure! Wish all Internet Businesses were this easy to deal with! 146227

This replaced a damaged taillight/license plate assembly on our Jayco tent trailer. The quality matches the old one at an amazing price. Installation was simple; mounting holes matched, wire colors were the same. I had to supply silicon caulk and reuse the old mounting screws. I'm pleased. 206495
A good tail light for the money. I had installed regular trailer tail lights when my old ones failed and when I located these they looked like an exact match. Sure enough it was close enough so I'm back in business. Company had good follow up on the order and after the sale. 13204
Exact match to original. Installed it as soon as it arrived and functioning properly. All in all, this site will be my #1 resource for any trailer parts, and have already informed 2 other people about the site. Best customer service and e-mail follow-ups for my order. 73643
by: Michael B02/05/2014
SUPER bright brake light and good tail. License plate brackets kick out a little so you can still access once the light is installed and actually allows light to shine ON the plate... not on top. SSUUPPEERR fast shipping and you can't beat the price. Love etrailer.com. 115829
by: RUSS S09/14/2013
I bought 2 of these and installed them on my travel trailer because the lights I had got broken in a minor collision. these look better than the original ones. I am really pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone that needs replacement lights. RVST51 99951
Very reasonable. Great communication/emails all the way through transaction, from order to invoice to shipping info, to follow up. Product arrived very quickly, just as described in great condition. Will definitely use etrailer.com again. Why go anywhere else. 66554
by: Peter W.01/16/2015
The product has replaced original equipment on my 1996 trailer. Product matches the original perfectly and fit perfectly. Service from etrailer.com is excellent. Shipped promptly and arrived safely. Couldn't be more please with the product and the service. 170183
by: robert anderson06/21/2012
on the license plate tail light the wires were put in the wrong order where the bulb fits into.When I turned on running lites the brake lite came on and when I hit brakes the running lite came on. I switched my wires around on that lite and it now works good. 45142
This travel trailer stop, turn and tail light with the license plate bracket is the exact model of the original on my travel trailer. It took me awhile to find this replacement, but when I did, the price was so reasonable and the service was fast. Way to go! 189105
by: Ian H.07/26/2014
I didn't have the scary fast shipping experience others have had, but this tail lamp was an exact replacement for my 2004 Palomino Pony 2100. I ordered this and the RVST50, the footprint was an exact match and the price was unbeatable. Highly recommended! 143046
