Door lock for 1973 AS Tradewind

I'm looking to get a replacement lock for my AS 73 Tradewind. Ideally as complete an assembly as possible. My existing lock still works but I know there will come a day when it breaks. I've checked with Out of Door Mart and they have some parts but no lock, cylinder, key. Can any of you fine folks point me in a direction.

Thanks for your time and effort.

Check with Inland RV in Ca. Last I heard they had both new K locks (very expensive) and a cheaper replacement that needs some door modification.

Good luck! As I've written before, it's often cheaper to buy a whole salvaged door than just the lock! They go for $750-$1,200 on eBay (just the lock/handleset). I've got pictures of mine torn down to disable the interior lock (it can rattle into the locked position driving down the road), but I haven't got them posted yet. Here is another lock post that might be helpful though:

I still have my original K200 lock but do not trust the locking mechanism so I installed a Stanley locking hasp. Others have installed a deadbolt, but you would have to drill into the door jamb. I have had to enter through a window when the lock would not open, but i know a little trick. Send me a PM and I will share.
