You had me worried there!

My 84 310 had had a Bargman L300 latch swapped in place of the likely broken Keeler latch assembly. At least there's another repacement option besides the L300 for broken Keelers.

Was the replacement job done well?

Seems to work well, altho I dont have a reference point.
Both latch lock and deadbolt work off the same key.

With the damage its kinda ugly, but that was done after the latch fitment.
I will take some more pics next time I am over there.

I think I remember somewhere earlier in your thread you had discussed your entrance latch issues including the deadbolt problems.

Things would have been much simpler for motorhome and trailer owners if the Keeler latches had been kept in production or at least some upgraded or improved direct replacement model had been made available.

But as Gregsch mentioned back in my rebuild thread, "that's just the way it is when working on a 35 year old, hand built Moho, that is made entirely of off the shelf parts from other vehicles." I think Greg nailed it!

The good news is you at least have a working door latch

Yes Brad, you remembers correct. My exterior handle/deadlock/doorbell assembly was torn off by some PO.
I can say that this lock works well, but I dont know if it is an easy fit, as my door has a plate around the lock that may have been fitted to hide a fitment issue. I will shoot some more pics and post so that people can see.

That's right! You ended up buying a grab handle from Colaw's.

The old 310 door that is currently on my Argosy has the Bargman L300 latch assembly and that conversion uses a large see to cover the existing opening. As conversions go it wasn't done to badly.

For reference one of these days I'll have to post details of all the different latches and doors that I have.

There is a Hartwell latch assembly listed on ebay right now. This latch was used in some Argosy motorhomes and I believe trailers.

The Hartwell latches show up very infrequently on ebay.

Just thought I'd share...
