Door lock replacement for 1955 trailer "?"

Since the refrig style door lock is unavailable I am figuring I will eventually use a Bargman L-100 or L-200 as a replacement.

I am wondering if anyone can provide pictures of what you have used on your 50's trailer as a replacement to the original.

The 2 handles mentioned above are the same except the inner handle on the L-100 is a knob and on the L-200 it is a lever.

Pictures of both are below:

You may want to consider adding a conventional door lockset to your survey - seems like I've seen those used....

Richard,

The '53 Flying Cloud I just sold came with an ugly weathered gold mobile home lock set installed. I replaced it with a brushed silver similar lockset. It obviously wasn't stock, but it wasn't so obvious that anyone ever commented on it. They're available everywhere; even Wally World carries them.
