Sliding bedroom door latch??

My 95 Land Yacht has a sliding bedroom door that has a latch on the jamb but what the heck does it latch too? The door frame is clean with no evidence that there was ever anything for it to hook to. Even more strange is the door itself simply has a little brass colored finger hole to open and close the door. It all looks to be factory too. I see no evidence of any mods to the door. Anyone know what the deal is? Thanks for any help.

Without seeing it in person it looks like the hook you use to pull the sliding door out when the door is all the way retracted into the wall slot. You should be able to push the top of the latch with your finger to make the hook/loop pop out. Use it to pull the door out of the pocket. Click image for larger version

Thanks CardInal! Duh! I feel stupid now lol. I thought it was a door latch. You're absolutely right though it's a door pull! In my own defense though, the door just slides open against the inside wall. It's not inside any compartment so I've always just put my finger in the little brass hole and slid it closed. Thanks again!

Don't feel like you are alone. Just bought a 94 and was trying to figure it out myself ��

Same here. When you are in an Airstream, you have to think like an Airstream.
