I'll check around and report back what I find.
Save your time, as you won't find it.

Airstream took a household lock and modified it to work, and installed a small pin so as not to weaken the cast frame any more than they had to.

There are far better locks that that one, and again, it is not a travel lock.

Andy.

I think in Scotts case, the entrance door was replaced, as were several thousands of them, because the cast door frame broke rather easily.

That dead bolt was common to Airstream, since it took a household lock, and modified it with that round shaft, to make it a dead bolt.

That dead bolt "IS NOT A TRAVEL LOCK".

You can open and close the dead bolt from the inside of the trailer, but you can only open the dead bolt from the outside.

Andy,

What is the difference between a dead bolt and a travel lock?

I will post a picture of the one remaining Yale dead bolt on my Liner tonight.

Bill

Andy, if I'm doing some work on the door anyway, should I just patch that small hole and go without it? Don't want to leave a big hole, but have to do some tasteful repair in that area already.

Andy,

Here are two pictures of my existing deadbolt. Any idea where I can locate a replacement?

The previous owner did not do you any favors.

What he did has severely weakened the door jamb, and door frame.

That cast material breaks rather easily.

Yeah, I know... I have a crack at the bottom corner of the door frame. maybe even from this being pushed on once or twice...

But its there and I don't want to have to patch the exterior..
Got enough projects to do...
