Need new deadbolt lock for 1983 34' Limited

I hired a locksmith to open or replace the deadbolt lock in my 1983 34' limited. The deadbolt lock was removed and destroyed. Ugh. It looks like from searching the Internet that the same lock was used at least through 1991 (not absolutely certain of that). I have looked everywhere on the Internet, including at Inland Empire Airstream, and at Airstream (the company). No luck anywhere. I have attached a picture of the lock location in the door handle. The opening at the lock seat is 1 5/8 inches. I really could use some help.[ATTACH]324868[ATTACH]324869

Our deadbolt is a Schlage. I assumed it wasn't made exclusively for Airstream. The oval deadbolt does look unusual. Maybe you can disassemble the entire lock set from the trailer grab handle and start taking some measurements and see what might be in the Schlage catalog. I know there are a lot of variations, but sometimes a guy might find one with the right dimensions that will fit the grab handle.

Schlage Deadbolt

Thanks David. I thought that this might be a Schlage deadbolt. I will see if I can find a catelog for Schlage locks.
