Since I'll never find a Bargman L-77...

...what are my options for adding a door knob/latch to our 61 Flying Cloud entrance?

(It's just a hole now)

Any ideas? Any pictures?

Contrary to your opinion, there is a Bargman L77 on Ebay at the moment. However, it might be more than you are willing to pay.

Holy Grail Bargman L77 L 77 Lock Latch Vintage Trailer Entry Door Handle | eBay

A complete one with keys in El Paso sold on Ebay two weeks ago for $699. You may need to be diligent about checking and very patient but one seems to appear on auction about every month or so.

I will send you a private message. I have several L-77 locks right now.

Unless your a restoration type, it is just a door.....you can install many other types of lock. Pick it out and install it correctly.

It looks like you're taken care of, but if you aren't... I have two that are going up on Ebay soon. If you want info, PM me. Found them yesterday while rubbernecking. They were about the only thing holding that camper up.

I'm curious. What'd you end up doing?
Need options myself.

We found a used one - via AirForums.

It was appropriately expensive. But it fit like a glove, and we're really glad we bought it.
