Sorry to hear about your run with Murphy's Law! Persistence usually pays off in such circumstances. . . .

So far as Vintage Travel Trailers are concerned, the Airstream and Argosy probably have the best "support" for reproduction and replacement parts. Argosys used parts common to Airstreams for most assemblies so parts availability is little different than that for an Airstream of similar vintage. One of the exceptions to that rule are the front deep-wrap-panoramic windows. Those clear, deep-wrap wring windows are unique to Argosy, but the tinted Airstream deep-wrap wing windows are a direct replacement but include tinting that wasn't available on Argosy. The Minuets have (Most 6.0 Metre and some 6.7 Metre Minuets) composite aluminum floor panels that are also unique to the Argosy line. A broken or inoperable door lock on an Argosy shouldn't be a deterrent to purchase unless the door has been mangled trying to gain access to the coach . . . even then it is possible to replace the door skins and rebuild the door frame in most cases. As has been mentioned in earlier posts, door lock parts are available from several vintage friendly dealers as well as replacement door lock kits (the kits may require some door modification).
Good luck with your project!
