door latch

Hello I am Pablo, from Argentina. I buy a old Airstream that want to restore but I am finding two problems from the start.
First is dificult to find what model and year it is my Airstream since on the rigth side of the entrance door has a Overlander emblem and also a Land Yacht emblem. Also have another emblem seems not original that says "Africa 1959-1960" and a graphic of the continent and a rute map from Cairo to Cape Town. Serial number is I27D9J542, looking on the forum I am not sure is the year is 59 or 69 since that Africa emblem confuced me.
Second problem is to find a Door Latch, I look on the web and the Bargan L300 seems to be the one the problem is the price is over $230
Some body can help me to solve this two problems?
Hello to all and is a plesure to share this forum with you.
Pablo.

Hi Pablo!
I would love to see some pictures of your trailer! (I am especially curious about the Africa emblem.)

Is that really the right door handle? Do you have pictures of your door handle?

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

Pablo,

You are allowed one post without pictures, no excuses!!

If your trailer is in fact a CC Airstream, you have a very desirable unit...congrats.

Pablo.
The "I" in front of the serial number did not start until the late 60's.

Your Airstream has 3 front windows, and that did not start until 1969 models.

The breakdown of your serial number is very clear.

You have a 1969 27 foot Overlander International, double bed, rear bath, made in Jackson Center.

68 and older Airstreams, only had one front window.

Lastly, the front wing windows, on the bottom outer edge, have square corners.

That was only used on the 1969 models.

Andy

Bargman no longer makes any locks.

However, a couple of kits are available to replace the original Bargmans.

Since special parts for them were made, they work fine.

Andy do you know wich is the best "original" looking door latch is aviable for my Airstream? I have no latch at all, just the empty hole. No Airstream in Argentina so nothing to compare.
Thanks
