'70 International Door Handle

I keep reading through a lot of info on the door handles (exterior door thingie mabobber). My mom just purchased a 70 International and has told me the handle is $500 to replace. I'm convinced I can beat that....

I keep reading about the L-100 and the L-200...but I've looked up the L-300 and it looks the most like what is on her Airstream. Am I nuts?

Next - what is the difference between what Airstream sells for $500 and the Bargman L-X00? $70 compared to $500 sounds like a HECK of a good deal... I've read about the extended *brain fade* something on "specials"... is that it?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Inland RV sells a replacement for some 70's models for a couple hundred bucks. But I think with your year you are stuck. You also have to take into consideration the door jamb which changed from cast to extruded in the early 70's. If I am not msitaken I think the lock on your coach is a Bargman K200.

The lock on your Airstream was used from 1970 to 1977. It's called a KT lock.

Airstreams price is $600.67, not installed.

You can install a L-100 special, "BUT" you must plate the door, inside and out. No other lock will work correctly.

The cause is the very thick, cast door frame. It takes a very long striker bolt to go through the door frame and then engage in a striker pocket.

"DO NOT" cut the door frame casting. That will weaken it to the degree that it can easily snap in half.

Then you will find out the price of the farm you just bought.
