Kitchen cabinet door for 1970 Caravaner
I am searching for a door for the lower/aft kitchen cabinet for our 1970 caravanner. Also does anyone know where I may purchase door latches like these. I apologize but I have not figured-out how to upload images. Many thanks!

The cabinet doors do not look original. The latches look similar to airstream plastic latches. Post another photo of the latches with dimensions and front and back views.

inland rv sells them in white or brown, I have never seen silver factory ones so I suspect the ones in that blog have been painted with silver metallic krylon fusion spray paint.

caravanner cabinet latches
I have tried many times to upload low res images but cannot do so. I keep getting an error message. The wizzy wig editor does not work. I am somewhat familiar with this stuff as a web manager and something is not right. (most likely me!)
Anyway I checked-out a bunch of 1970 stock Airstream Caravanners on Google images and their cabinets were the exact same layout and construction as mine. The latches from inland are very rough approximations on the ones on my cabinates. Mine are definately spray painted silver. 2"X 2.25" are the dimensions.

I've used the inland ones in my 69 and they looked the same as the existing ones

I also have 70 caravaner, I built new cabinets and doors, and still have the old ones. I have five like yours, and eight latches in brown plastic, if you get to Ft Collins Co. they are your's for the asking.
If you send me your e-mail address I can send pics. the laminate is coming off of some of them, so it might be easier to make your own, but trying to match color may be a problem.

I will try to get you some pics this week.

I used my old tamber doors over again.
