If your compartment locks are similar to those on my '78 Argosy Minuet and '64 Overlander International, you should be able to source them from your local locksmith -- mine had a display with all of this type of lock on his wall and was able to order any that he didn't stock -- your locksmith should also be able to key all of your new locks to a single key (or match them to your current key). My usual locksmith is located in a college town where there are several mobile home parks so he stocks a wide variety of locks common to mobile homes and RVs.

Good luck with your search!
