I have an Overlander located in a remote part of Nova Scotia and I live 1000's of miles away! When I last was out there, I discovered that the lock set was broken. I ain't no expert on any of this stuff and I'm sure some of you would be appalled to know that my Airstream sits where it is exposed to gales, salty breezes and major winter blizzards.
Anyhow, here i am back at home and I am utterly confused by all this lock stuff. Does anyone know which set I should be looking for as a replacement? I believe it's the tumbler that is broken.
A Bargman L-100 was on my '64 Overlander. It has the turn knobs on both sides. There is another identical lock (L-200) with the only difference I see = is a horizontal handle used on the inside.
I'm not impressed with the quality/ functionality of these locks., but for authenticity, they are what we originally had in '64. I added a modern deadbolt lock in the door below the Bargman for real security.
I ordered a new chrome door knob for mine from Vintage Trailer supply. It looks awesome, and it was an exact fit. Well, almost. The hole for the knob needed to be moved over toward the jamb by about 1/8". I used a 1" round sanding drum in my drill. I just moved it up and down in the hole and it worked perfectly.
Closes with barely a swing and holds the door shut.
I just ordered a deadbolt from this site, but that was yesterday, so I don't know if it will be the right fit. The measurements looked like they would work.
