Can you replace Keller Door lock on a '73 Tradewind with a Bargman L-400?
 
Does anybody have experience with replacing the Keeler door lock on a 73 or similar Airstream with a Bargman L-400 or other door lock? Maybe someone has some suggestions.
Thanks,
Rick

The L-400 is history.

There are Trimark locks kits available.

Also, Keeler Brass locks were not used until the 1978 models.

Thanks, but I do have a question. What was the stock door lock for the 73 Tradewind? I was told it was a Keeler. Are you saying that it is a Bargman L-400. I have access to a L-400. Or maybe I can get a rebuild kit for the Keeler. The chrome is coming off. I would like to bring it back to life or at least make the door look better with a new lock. Function of the old lock is not the best.
Thanks,
Rick

The entrance door lock for all Airstream trailers from 1970 to 1977, used a KT lock.

If the entrance door was changed out, it could have the Keeler Brass version.

For your info, the L-400 will not work, unless you considerably modify it.
