Replacement lock cylinders or keys?

Hi all, new guy here with a 1986 34' excella trailer. The front door locks were drilled out so ill be needing to get some new ones of those and i never got any keys when i bought it. so all the small doors and such on the exterior are locked. Anyway i can still get new locks and keys for these? thanks!

I was also missing keys on all of the hatches/battery doors/water fill for my 83 ltd when I bought it. I had a locksmith come over and he made me keys for all of the locks on the trailer (less the front door) in about 20 minutes. It was easier than replacing the cam locks.

Welcome to the forums. Most of the compartment locks are a "standard" key, a trip to your Airstream dealer should fix you up with them. If your main door lock wasn't damaged, you can probably get a new lock cylinder with keys. I'll have to look tomorrow to make sure.

I had the deadbolt drilled on a 87 Excella. Do not know how yours is mounted, but to get my handle off to take the lock out one would have to take of the interior door trim, the window trim, a interior panel, and most of another panel. I found a airstream dealer with the lock, which was listed at $120. I ended up just leaving the original deadbolt in place and having a new deadbolt mounted just below the handle and in line with the trim. Fifty bucks and a half hour.

One of the Airstream dealers in Arizona mailed me the water-fill compartment door key, a sneaky double-cut one I couldn't pick - shipping was at cost for key taped to a piece of cardboard in 1st class envelope. Very painless.

I found a lock cylinder with keys for my front door at Crain RV Supercenter in Little Rock, AR. It is a Keeler clyinder and they have 98 left in stock at this point. I have a '78 Excella and had already found a stainless steel latch handle for this lock being made by John Burkey of Magadore, Ohio. Hope this helps someone.
