rear compartment door opens while driving

Have a back bedroom with queen. Compartment door opens on rough roads. People flag us down. Seems the bracket on the end of the lock bends and allows the door to drop open.

Any suggestions?

If you have anything heavy in there that can hit the door, that can cause the it to open.

Thanks, but there is nothing leaning on the door or the latches or anything bumping on it. Any other ideas?

If it is like my compartments there is a metal latch on the inside of the door that can be bent for a better contact,

Make sure that the latch that is long enough to hold the door shut. Is that part bend? you can bend it back.
