You might also contact the seller of this burned 310 and see if he will put you in touch with the buyer. The coach is only good for parts so it might be worth a try.

Are you talking about the upper handle with the deadbolt or lower handle?

Dave, does your door have the Keeler lockset? Those handles are available through VTS. I bought and installed one just a few months ago. I tried to find a picture of a '91 350s door handle but failed.

Mike are you referring to this Grab Handle at VTS?

It's my understanding this style was used on the Argosies and possibly early Classics. I think all the later Classics used the style with the dead bolt installed.

Lower handle? Can you post a picture of the lower handle?

I think I just answered my own question. The 350 has the fancy electric activated lockset. My '82 310 has the unobtainable Keeler lock. I was referring to the lock handle but its a different lockset. http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/...-p/vts-929.htm

The MoHo is in the shop for a bad bearing..... I have no place to park it on level ground to do it myself...

That handle looks about right.... Will stop over tomorrow to measure.

Brad: the 310 that was being parted out was in a wreck and the door never made it home.

So you weren't looking for the grab handle that is beside the door and contains the door bell button, you were looking for the handle in the door itself.

I totally misunderstood what you were looking for!

Hopefully the one from VTS is what you need.

Well finally getting around to posting about the door handle fix. The handle in the door (at least on mine) was a Trimark latch handle found in the larger motor home storage bays. Local RV shop was able to provide a replacement. BUT like all things for these classics it required a bit of modification.

The handle through did not have a long enough travel for the length of rod. Additionally it would bind up. A couple of minutes with a grinder and problem fixed.

Now the only issue is the bolt sticks out to far to allow the panel to go back on.

So I will use a cutting wheel to shorten. Next weekend a plan on trying to get the inside door panels off while it is still cool out. I will use them as a pattern to cut new panels out of the interior grade aluminum..... Should look a whole lot better then the vinyl!

Well it turn out not to be a bd Bering but a stuck caliper. Luckily my normal RV shop was a few hundred yards down the road...How often does that happen!?!

Replaced the calipers and rotors, pads, and rotors. The master cylinder was not holding pressure when they went to billed it. So that was replaced as wheel. It was on my short list of things to do.

A HUGE difference in stopping power! Granted it now only takes 3 football files instead of 4 to stop.

That door handle looks identical to the one that broke on Sonia's '92 250, discussed in this thread (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...ll-143980.html) so maybe it was a common part used in all the motorhome of that period?

I think you are correct. They were and thankfully still are readily available.

Which really makes me wonder why Airatream used them LOL!

Well, Felicia and I sold the MoHo today to one of our fellow forum members; dspaw. He flew down from Cleveland to see it in person and apparently liked what he saw. He is a great guy and has the right attitude to own and maintain a classic Airstream MoHo. I will make sure he starts a new thread or takes over this one about his trials, tribulations and moments of out right Joy in his ownership. Hopefully you all will guide him along the way as you did me! For which I will be eternally grateful! I look back at how far the Moho has come and realize it was truely a team effort. Brad and Steve talked me off the cliff several times.

It has been a very emotional roller coaster the past two months as we decided to sell the MoHo. Not really decided since there really was no choice. For those wondering, 2 months ago I took some antibiotics for an ingrown toenail. I had a severe allergic reaction and started throwing up and continued to for 18 hours. Well the severe vomitting put me into Atrial fibrilation and my heart started producing a bunch of clots due to the erratic and rapid beating (185 bpm). I am told I had a heart attack that night. 48 hours later the afib came back with vengeance and I had a massive heart attack that blocked the back side of my heart. I was in the Hospital when it happened, which is a good place to be for those types of things. They were able to clear the clot in the cath lab, but the damage was still significant. As a result I have Congestive heart failure, frequent bouts of pericarditis, plueritis and the sacks around my heart and lungs filling with blood and fluid. BUT I am incredibly lucky since the blood cots went to my heart instead of my brain which would have caused massive strokes. So there is a silver lining to everything. Oh and now that I have a handi-cap placard I am going to go to Walmart (before Dave returns to pick it up) early one morning with the MoHo and park across 6 handi-cap spaces.

I still plan to read and participate in the forums since I have so much I need to give back for all the help people were to me. I told Dave that I am always a phone call away to help with what ever he needs. Granted, I probably won't know the answer, but after 3.5 years I know which one of you will! Felicia and I also plan to live vicariously through them so he better post lots of picks!!

Well I am wiped out since I was out of my recliner for 5 whole hours today- A new personal record. I was sweating profusely in the heat which ironically worked better at keeping my CHF at bay then the Laysix! Like I said, there is a silver (or aluminum) lining in everything!

I will end this diatribe with a few of my favorite before and after pics.
