We have the parts that you need.

Wear on the striker bolt as shown in your photo, means the striker pocket, is badly worn. It's supposed to be nylon, not any form of metal.

Additionally, that wear also suggests that the running gear is badly out of balance.

Lastly, that wear also can mean that your entrance door hinge is worn to the point of allowing the door to sag to one side, which is correctable.


Andy

Once upon a time there was a man with a very badly bent flanagan rod. Try as he might, he was unable to find a new one and knew nothing about how to straighten the damaged one.

One day he heard of a man that specialized in straightening bent flanagan rods and so he went to see him. After carefully examining the bent rod our specialist said, "Yes, I can fix this. It will cost you one hundred dollars."

Desperate, the man said, "Well, go ahead and fix it - although, I think a hundred dollars is a little steep."

The bent flanagan rod was chucked in a vise and the repair man gave it a good strong whack with the back side of his cosmopolitan wrench. He took it from the vise, sighted down its' length, handed it back to the man and said, "There, that'll be a hundred dollars."

Thankful to have his flanagan rod repaired, the man still questioned the cost of the repair. "How can you justify charging me a hundred dollars for one whack from a rusty old cosmopolitan wrench?"

To which the repairman replied, "I did not charge you at all for striking the blow. The hundred dollars was for knowing where to hit it."

Perhaps the lock part that Andy is providing is free. The $45 dollars might be for having the piece you need.

Glad you got the right lock. Been there, done that, bought an extra T-shirt. Mine broke in exactly the same place. Unfortunately, the broken piece held the bolt closed and I could not remove one of the 4 screws holding it in place. I had to drill out all the pop rivets holding the inner skin in place (I was trapped inside) and bend the frame around the remaining screw to get the bolt retracted (and escape). "Do you ever have those days when you just can't get out of the house?"

Fortunately, I was able to obtain the correct lock from Fred and Jack's in Bryant, AR a little under 20 miles away. In years past they were Airstream dealers. And yeah, it was much more expensive than the ordinary Bargman that I bought in Little Rock. At least I was able to return it. Now that I know the guys at Airstream of Arkansas, I would drive the extra distance to buy from them. Good friends and true believers.


As far as the age of the lock, it was a replacement unit for the original that I bought from Fred and Jack's in the early '90s. They are not particularly well made.
