Lock for 1970 Overlander

Hi there

newbie to Airstreams/Forums.
Just got a 1970 Overlander (27ft) and it's missing the door lock, the hole where you put the key in is empty!
Any suggestions??

Tried Inland they want $550 for original or $150 for a modified version, just wondering if the $ you save on the part will cost you on installation.

Installation should be about the same. With either one, you need to drill out rivets and separate the door skins. At least Inland has put together the retrofit kit that saves money over the "new old stock" part.

The lock on mine is working fine from the outside, but the inner handle came off (we've been using vise grips for a while) and then the locking pin unscrewed itself and broke off when someone (else) tried to lock the door.


I received the Inland RV lock kit last week, and will do the installation sometime before next spring . . . I hope. I will keep the old assembly; I may be able to have it repaired.

Just in case someone else has lost the inner handle - you can still get them from Airstream.

Mine seems to have three slotted screws and a slotted setscrew in the inside handle.

I need to pull it to get eh locksmith to make a key, so I'm hoping so!

Airstream no longer has the tumblers for the original KT lock, but they do have a new style tumbler for the KT locks that were made within the last year.

Since the original tumbler was no longer available, we had some made.

They are reasonably close to the original, but more importantly, they work.
