I want to replace bargman with modern lockset (?)

Have 1969 that came with a bargman set. Its pretty toasty, and I am not really restoring the rv - more like updating it. So, I bought a modern lockset, which just arrived, but I cannot figure out how it laches. Anyone have any pics of how it laches, or has anyone made this modification. Pics appreciated.

A 1969 Airstream used a "cast metal" door frame.

That dictated using a lock that has an "extended" striker bolt.

The lock that you have will not function, if you did manage to mount it, since the striker bolt is not extended.

There is however, a lock kit available, that replaces the Bargman L-100, L-200 and the Chessler locks, that has a special machined extended striker bolt, that works perfectly.

Andy.

Update - The lock set will not work. I called Out of Doors mart and they were very helpful, and told me I bought the wrong lock and to send it back for a full credit. Bought the correct one from Andy a few minutes ago.
