Not sure what you mean by 'whole door assembly' - can you post a picture. If you mean the pull handle and associated latch/lock like the one in this picture:Click image for larger version

These locks and parts for them are NLA. Inland RV has a kit which will allow you to install a somewhat smaller lock/latch. The installation includes adding a piece to the door to to create a smaller opening.

Depending on what has failed on yours, it maybe repairable. I think John Burkey (member here) makes handles for these locks.

Paul, if you end up replacing it, my replacement looks a bit better with a cast aluminum exterior adapter plate:

I recently sold a factory lock assembly that the interior side was great.
You can see it still listed in other items I've listed
