Question '82 Classic 25' MoHo Lock Needed

Need help in finding where to get a replacement door lock for our 1982 Classic 25' Motorhome. The 2" long, 1/4" dia. lever behind the door which is part of the lock assembly broke and now we could not lock the door. Door handle mechanism still works. According to the RV dealer I get my parts from, it is no longer carried by Airstream Inc. Thanks in advance.

Sorry to say this lock is no longer made and parts are not available. Some of us have managed to fabricate parts as they have failed. I haven't read of anyone else who has had the lever break. Can you use your deadbolt to lock to motorhome and use broken lock as just a latch? That is what we do.

Search the Motorhome knowledge base and you'll read lots of tails of woe.

Inland RV sells a kit to install a smaller lock that is still available. As I understand it, you need to add some sheet metal to the door because the existing cutout is larger than new lock.

there is a thread

that has the diagram that you could take to a machine shop and have it made. If you decide to go that route and post it there are several MoHo owners who need the same lock and you might get a bulk order. We bought the newer syle lock in case ours dies but it will be an ugly fix. You have to put a patch on the interior and exterior of the door since the new lock is much smaller.

Several years ago, we came up with a replacment lock kit for the classic motorhomes.

It requires a small modification to the door, but works as well as the original, if not better.
