Lock Cylinder

Guess I was lucky with my '71 Overlander. Lock only needed minimal work but could use a new cylinder. Works but is sloppy. Boring is worn too. Answer :don't lock the door. I never do in the storage yard. Lock is worth more than the trailer! Thought of installing dead bolt but worried about frame cracking. Any suggestions on a new cylinder?

Airstream still has the KT lock available, but it was modified to use a different tumbler.

Airstream no longer has a tumbler to fit the older KT locks.

As a result of that, we had some tumblers modified, that fit the older KT locks.
