Food truck interior lighting

Building a dessert truck and have my own 120vac onboard (30 amp generator).  What lighting to use?  8 ft. single pin flourescents would work - but how do you keep the bulbs in the fixtures in this day and age of cheap Chinese material & craftmanship?!?  I'm only using 10 amps to run my refrigeration and flourescent lighting is low amperage, so I don't believe power to be an issue.  Throwdown with your wisdom, experience, suggestions, guesses, etc, etc.  Thanks for looking and opining!

    7+ years of mobile kitchens, never had a bulb fall from the sky.
    The bulbs are required to be covered also, so if one did work it's self free, it would not go far.

    In my 20' trailer I used (1) 8' and (2) 4' florescents in mine - all with covers. Almost too much light.
    I agree the ropelights are cool.
