Looking for an exterior door latch - 1986

On my 1986 Airstream there are some exterior utility doors with a locking handle. One of them has the threads stripped-out and cannot hold in the screw. Does anyone know of any way to fix it? Or find a replacement?

I'd think that a larger tap could re-thread the hole. Or you could fill the hold with J-B Weld and then drill and tap the hole again.
