Keys ?
 
1.My 1975 overland did not come with any keys... what can I do? I have done a search on the forum and found that apparently they all use the same keys? but is it possible to buy them or do I need to go to a lock smith? replace all the locks $$$$? I am confused and new so be gentle..

Basically, the keys are not available.

However, a new tumbler comes with 2 keys.

The tumbler takes about 10 seconds to replace.

I pulled my Caravel to the local Locksmith and he made new keys (and spares!!) for all the locks right then and there.

It was about a 20 dollar job. He probably did what Andy said here.

do the pop locks on compartments and main door use the same tumbler?

Same here. Locksmith made all the keys in about 15 minutes. No big deal.

No, they are totally different.

My Bambi II takes 6 different keys get into everything. 4 for compartments and 2 for the door. Plus 4 different keys for the hitch set up. Total pain. Low priorty but I am going to change them all out to match (as much as possible) one of these days.

I believe that the compartment doors are standard, and are available from Airstream and other sources. There used to be a chart on the airstream web site but it's gone now. You should be able to get the compartment door keys here:

Keys : Out-of-Doors Mart!, More Airstream Parts on-line than anyone!

For the door keys you can, as others have posted, either replace the lock or have a locksmith make keys.

No need to replace the lock.

Tumbler replacements are available for the KT lock that was used from 1970 to 1977.
