I have been thinking about adding some interior lighting using small battery (AA, AAA, 9V) wireless lights.
LEDs would probably be the best choice. The purpose here is to have interior lighting when not plugged in (and not wanting to use the propane lamp) but having the option to turn on a light or two for a short period of time. They would probably be concealed under and in cabinets so as to not mess up the vintage look of the trailer. I don't really want to run a 12v system. Just small lights powered by batteries. I have seen quite a few versions on the market.
Does anyone else use these type of lights in their trailer?
We just picked some of these today, Lowes seems to have the best selection. One of the models we picked up is a Sylvania Golden Dragon and it is really bright compared to others. We are also going to work at hiding them under cabinets, etc.

I received the Golden Dragon LED the other day and I must say that I am very pleased with these lights. They make all the others seem like toys. They are built with a metal housing and have a elegant design. They produce quite a bit of light in their full on mode and the dim feature adds another option for brightness. I removed the lens as suggested by some reviewer which produces more of a flood light pattern as opposed to the factory spotlight pattern.
It seems like you have to be within an inch or so of the motion sensor on the Golden Dragon to trigger it, so I think it would be OK on the road. I am finding that I keep triggering ours when they are just sitting around, probably a good idea to keep this in mind when choosing a location for mounting them so as to require a deliberate touch to activate them.
