I think 71Safari had those in his trailer, I saw them at the rally in November when I got the tour. I'd never seen anything like them. Maybe he could take a picture. The hardware might be the same.

Yes, I see how those bins might abuse the thermostat. Here is a picture from 71_safari's gallery (notice the underscore?)

You may want to PM him if he does not catch this post

Them there bins are called "blanket lockers"

They were an option in the 70s for over the gaucho bedding storage. If you can find someone with a service manual you should be able to get the part number so you can order the part. I do not know if Inland RV has the hardware for these latches. It is entirely possible that a dealer can still order them IF you have a part number of can point to it in the service manual.

Good luck! Ain't Vintage fun?!
