1975 Overlander Door Lock

Hello all,
I lost the key to my 75 Overlander and had to drill out the tumbler in order to get into the trailer.
Now it's sitting unlocked up at my land.
I took the whole door handle/ latch mechanism out and brought it home hoping to get a new one at a locksmith. But no one can match it up.
Does any one know a source for just the lock tumbler?
I know I can buy a whole new latch at Inland RV but they cost like $400.
Ha! No way I can afford that.
Does anyone know a source for just the lock?
Thanks for any and all replies.

Sorry, I can't help with the new tumbler process but...

You've just helped protect the glass by disabling the lock mechanism - I refuse to lock my projects for fear of someone popping a tempered glass window out of curiosity just for a look around.

If the trailer is occupied and you need it locked, maybe look into a separate deadbolt?

You can easily get into the trailer, without damaging any part of the KT lock.

All you need is the correct tumbler that comes with keys.

Taking the lock off the door, is not necessary.

You should have called someone that could easily help your issue, and still leave a big smile on your face.

Thank you fellows,
I ordered one from Out of Doors and paid the extra shipping to get it here before the weekend.
The trailer has actually sat unlocked since June. But my tennant up has a new girlfriend with two boys about 10 and 12 who stay there on the weekends. Arrrgh.
Having been a 10-12 YO boy once myself I just didn't think the camper would stay 'unused' for very long once they found it was unlocked.
