The knobs on my 2014 cabinets do not latch. The spring-loaded hinges are all that keep the doors closed.
On my drawer, I used a brass catch I already had in the shop, mounted between the back of the drawer and the plywood cross member. It should keep the drawer from opening on the road.
The flap on the bottom of my cabinet is held closed by two spring-loaded struts. The same struts as are used on Airstream upper cabinets.
I could replace existing knobs, but that would entail covering the necessary hole with some sort of cover on the back for appearance. It would also be very touchy cutting the holes for the new pulls in the curved cabinet doors. I'm leaving the existing knobs in place.
