Utility door fell off

14 days on the road, KY to Florida. All went well until arriving back in KY today, passenger utility door fell off? I had walked around the camper on my last rest stop, first one in KY, all was good. Looking at the rivets they broke off and the clasp did not hold it.

So this will be another item to add too, inspect the rivets.
Need a replacement hatch door.
Has anyone ever heard of this?

This is the gray lower utility door, no cables. Should be a easy replacement, if AS has this available, need to be 33 inches plus the hinge, clasp.

It's common.Older trailers especially.
A good thing to carry with Airstreams, is a big roll of 2 inch wide, Silver color, Gorilla Brand duct tape.About $9 at Wally World.
NASCAR racing pit crews call it 200 MPH tape, for taping damaged cars.
Good for sealing loose windows, when latches are broken, say you just buy a used one.Tape them shut, before towing home,you don't want them rattling and breaking.
Same for loose hatch doors, sealing leaking windows,leaking roof vents, etc etc.
These Airstreams arnt the 8th Wonder of the engineering world.
And, it matches the Airstream...
Airstream rodeo clown, it's my turn in the barrel 🤡

Check with Out of Door Mart in Colfax, NC or Vintage Trailer Supply. I have found a lot of items there.
