Door latch for '75

Does any body know of a salvage yard or place where we might could find a clicker latch for our outside door. The po had been using the deadbolt only and now I know why after I priced new ones.

Becky,
You can try Colaws Salvage in Missouri, but the ones I few I have seen in the yards are usually in pretty bad shape. The best I can suggest is to buy the Kitthat Inland RV sells. It does require a "patch" plate but it seems to be the most cost effective way to go. The orginal latch assembly when available was going for over $700
