1977 Surfside, door lock

Help

Finally retired and on a cross Canada Trip and my metal door lock, will not lock. The door closes and latches, but will not lock from the inside or outside.
Currently in Vancouver BC.

Can I get a replacement lock?

Any advise is appreciated!

Cheers

Bill

Take it apart and clean and lube it. I don't know what that trailer has for a door latch, but our Uhaul that has the big square Bargman L300, it wouldn't lock on the inside unless the key was in the center of it's travel. I took ours apart, cleaned it, and lubed it with white grease, the key still has to be in the right position to lock it on the inside.

Thank you for your reply.

I believe the problem is in the locking mechanism, being worn?

I will need to take it apart to be sure.

Can I buy a replacement lock, somewhere?

Again, thank you.

Bill

I don't know what that trailer uses for the door lock so I can't answer where to get one. If you can figure out what it is, then look on ebay, check out vintage trailer, and fletchers trailer sales. I was hoping someone here with the same trailer could help you. Bob

my surfside has a bargman 400 so i assume yours is the same
it is no no longer made

i replaced mine with a modern one however it is quite a job.

if you are in vancouver i would say check with Escape trailers in chilliwack for advice and possible repair
