Hi toastie. Yes, you have a Bargman H 20 door handle. A few parts are still available for that mechanism. Check out
Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies!

PS Don't allow just anyone to try to open that door. You know why, it TURNS but most people try to PULL and end up breaking it off.

Good luck...

H20-2 Parts

Right now, only the handle and the handle spring are available as replacement parts. We're hoping to track down and offer the bezels and the cylinders, too. But they're not available yet. They were used on very few makes of trailer so they're one of the rarest locks. Only the L-77 was used less.

1954 Locks

Hi Bill,

That's a pre-H20-2 lockset. The knob is a standard commercial grade aluminum exterior passage-type set. No cylinder. I can't vouch for your backset. That's the critical measurement. Measure from the center of the knob to the edge of the door and I'll see if I can spec something.

The deadbolt is probably a standard single cylinder RV deadbolt. Again, check the backset to be sure. When you buy a deadbolt, make sure it works on 1-5/8" thick doors. that's about what you have, if my memory is correct.

Good luck and post again if you need additional help.

I meant that's a stainless steel passage-type set.

I'd be watching eBay for an H-20, they come up every so often. I've seen them go for $300, but I got a spare for $75, so you never know. Sure seems like one of those parts that it would be really good to have a spare on hand.

cheers,
steve

h20 lock

do you still have your spare? wanna sell it or part of it? i just need the larger shaft that goes from the exterior handle and into the lock itself--and whatever small pins and things that hold it in. the rest is complete and seems to be functioning ok. i can get a new handle from vintage t-s. regards--ted

I do, but I didn't mean to imply in my reply that I wanted to sell it. Sorry.

Just a Q. Are these parts made of bronze? I know of a fantastic foundry that I have used when I need to recreate something. I found a part to a boat that was on a friend's yacht. I begged him to let me borrow it. I had a dozen pieces made. And honestly, I didn't feel it was that expensive...
