'87 Excella: Long baggage door cylinders?

My '87 Excella has five baggage door locks. The trailer came with a little key (different from the entry door key) that fit none of the locks. Three of the locks are standard 5/8" cam locks and will be easy to replace.

However, I'm flummoxed by the pictured lock cylinder, of which I have two (from the rear and side storage doors). They're about 2" long, have a number '5' on the face (but no other markings), and the cylinder is embedded in a handle. There's a button on the side which will depress a little, but not enough to actually allow me to slide the cylinder out of its housing. I even took these to a locksmith, who said they can neither re-key them nor get the cylinder out of the housing.

I've exhausted my Google-Fu trying to find a replacement for these locks. The holy grail would be a single key that opens all five locks, but I'd certainly make do with one key for the three 5/8" locks and another for the two 2" locks.

Thoughts on how to find replacements for these two lock cylinders? Or is there some other way to skin this cat, to get five operable locks on my trailer? Thanks in advance ...

I really could use some help with this, if anyone has any ideas.
