08 27'FB CDD Shower door latch replacement

Hey guys
Does anyone know if there is a replacement shower door latch better than the one that comes with the shower door? The plastic one that comes with it is a joke. I've already gone through 2 of them and unless there is an aftermarket latch I'm sure we'll always have problems with it. One wrong pull and the darn thing bends never to work properly again! Is there a metal alternative to the plastic one?

I've looked for a metal replacement but have been unable to find one.

The Mrs. Bent it with her inside the shower. Of course thats when I was out visiting at a rally. So when I finally got back she was a tad less than happy. Whether it was being locked or me doubled over with laughter I'm not sure.

If you do get locked in just unscrew the nob and you'll be free.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

I have a 2004 CCD 28 with a black plastic shower door spring loaded latch that has broken on several occasions. It is Airstream part number 381403. It might also be their part number 702415-100 but that's just a guess. Did you ever figure out a replacement? I'm thinking of starting a new thread with part number 381403 (I know that is a good number) as the subject. Thanks, Gerry

Hey, I have the same problem, the latch wont stay shut and the plastic shaft wears over time. We had an incident this winter where the shower door came off its pivets because the latch had failed and the door was swinging.
Im going to find a deadbolt to lock the door for transporting

Hi claymanjack! Do you mind elaborating? I'm not sure what a short stop is.

I googled "fabricated Short stop" to try and fill my knowledge gap, but nothing applicable came up.

For those still looking for a resolution, Dennis 45 in comment #2 of the following thread had a good idea:
