Door Lock Replacement?

Anyone ever replace the door lock? Ours does not seem to be original and does not lock, anyway. I can't sleep with a gun on my pillow all the time!!!

Elisa, there are replacement options available. None of them are original fit and each would require some sort of modification to the door.

I know you can use a Bargman L300 as that is what's on one of the doors I have for my Argosy.

If you decide to go with a Bargman I could probably get you pictures of what needs to be done so you at least have a guide as to what to do.

Could you please post pictures and any info written on the lock you presently have in your door that you state is NOT original.

Brad is the man to figure out what and where you can replace it with, but people have butchered other brand locks into Argosy's and Airstreams before so we need to know what size hole and lock brand that you have.

As for the gun under the pillow, I prefer a Kukri as it doesn't wake up the other campers if used properly.
