Lock? I never lock my trailer at home. But then I live in the middle of nowhere and don't lock my house when I leave either...

Neighbors all have guns. Better than locks.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Everyone, thanks for the pictures and comments. I was looking to put the lock in the door. But it looks like everyone puts the lock in the wall that goes into the door. Interesting. I'll have to look at mine again and see if it's possible.

I put mine in the door and it works great. Bought the special deadbolt from Vintage Trailer, same as in post #12.

It's not a slam dunk. Don't try this unless you've done a few deadbolts and locksets in regular doors. You need to measure carefully.

Easier to do if you take off the door gasket.
