Question Does anybody know how to find a new key???

when I bought my 31' Airstream (1972) I was given the key to lock from the outside. But it appears one needs another one to lock from the inside. Any idea how to find the right one? Is this one a normed one???

I had a '72 Globetrotter, no key was needed to lock from the inside.

Welcome Camper,

I dont think you need a key to lock from the inside unless the lock is an aftermarket addition. Our 72 has a small knob / pin under the handle that you lift up or slide down to lock and unlock from the inside. If you could post a picture of your lock inside we could tell you if it is factory or not. At that point we would be able to help better.
Have a great day!
