Bargman L-77

I recently acquired this lock set. It has the thumb lever instead of the pull handle, and the interior locking mechanism. I haven't installed it yet, but it seems to be in great shape! Have not seen another like it anywhere. I am just curious if anyone else out there has one or anyone knows anything about it? They are marked L-77 10 and L-77 2?

Welcome to the forums!

The Bargman L-77 that you have there was used on a few Airstream models around 1960. We had one on our 1960 Pacer.

You didn't indicate what trailer you were thinking of installing it on, but if I were you I would most certainly not use it except as a replacement on a trailer that was originally equipped with that lock. L-77s are scarce as hen's teeth and one in like-new condition like yours appears to be are probably worth hundreds of dollars to someone who needs one.

Thanks for the reply Nuvite. It will be going on a 1961 Silver Streak.

Sounds like that's probably the right door lock for your trailer. Congratulations on your find!

Do you have a key for it? Vintage Trailer Supply does have replacement cylinders with keys for this model lock.

L-77 L-66 Lock Cylinder

On the other hand, we never locked our Pacer as the cylinder was kind of cranky and we didn't want to get locked out. In addition to which, we figured anything anybody would steal out of the trailer would cost less than repairing the lock and door if anybody broke in. (And nothing ever got stolen.)

That's a very nice door lock. I have one on my '59 Tradewind.
Many of them have broken handles, and from time-to-time there has been discussion about casting new handles, but I don't think it ever happened.
I think someone has a CNC file for the handle.
