Deadbolt how to

We have a 1972 Tradewind. It has the old KT lock, which as of now works fine. However I don't trust it on the highway so I would like to do a dead bolt on front wall that locks into the door frame. This will also be nice if we decide to leave the trailer unattended at a seasonal site for any length of time.

Here's the part I want to install.

Is it as simple as drilling a few holes? I'm cautious as our interior is aluminum lined as well. Here's the pic of our interior.

If I have to peel back the Aluminum, I am going to pay to have it done.

Any how to tips or pics much appreciated.
