Smile Cabinet door latch problem 1991 34' excella

Got a broken and potential for more. I cannot find a name on it to replace it. not sure they are manufactured any longer. Would prefer going back with what is there if possible but may not be practical.

It is an insert type; with plastic rim that a male insert attached to the door fits into when door closes (sorry but only way i know how to describe it). Cannot seem to locate a replacement latch? Appreciate any ideas! New at this business.

I just replaced my wardrobe latch on my 1995 Sovereign. It was made by Southco and was a p/n C3-803.

Here is the link C3-803 :: C3 - Grabber Catch Latches | Southco

I'd think any Airstream dealer could help.

Thanks to all for the feedback. I did find the latches at a local AS dealer here in Fort Worth; bought about 4 or 5 of them; very inexpensive. I assume they got them from Airstream? Griff.

That's a pretty generic catch, available most any RV dealer. An ocassional shot of good silicone will help them work and last longer. While your're at it, go ahead and silicone everything that moves on the entire trailer, front to back, inside/out. I use SPRAYWAY brand. Food grade, very clean, very slick. When you get through with the trailer it is good on your frying pan too. Safe & happy travels. John
