However, the estate sale people left some keys inside of the trailer after the sale was over but they do not work. There was no door key and several small keys that were meant to open the outside compartments. None of the small keys would open any of the locks. They would go in the key hole but they would not turn. I tried for 30-40 minutes and gave up. I called the estate sale people but they were not much help for the trailer previously belonged to an elderly couple and that is the keys the elderly lady gave them. There is also a tounge key lock but I can cut it off with a bolt cutter. What are my options for securing keys for this girl. She wants out of the lonley backyard soon. I feel so lucky to have won the bid on this Argosy, 26 ft. Any help would be appreciated.

Tumblers with keys for the entrance door lock (KT) are available from a few dealers.
Caution, you must tell them that you have an original lock, and that the tumbler from Airstream will only fit the new KT locks.
We are the only dealer that had some tumblers modified so that they work on the original lock.
Keys are available for the compartment doors, # 1101X.
