Why? A trailer over 2 metres (80") wide (such as the Escape 19) needs width clearance lights on the front edges, and a tall enough trailer needs height clearance lights on the top of the front (and the Escape lights in the top front corners cover both requirements), but no trailer needs a wide-vehicle identification group of three lights in the front middle.

What would the strip be for? Maybe I've just misunderstood the description.

To add to this, the incandescent bulbs seem to dim over time where the LEDs don't.

For anyone getting LED bulbs themselves, you might want to get a bulb and try it before you buy more. You may have one that is not as bright as the incandescents and you may not consider the LED to be sufficient for reading. On the other hand, you might have an LED that is incredibly bright.

Having some of both may also come in handy at times.
