Ahh- today I went to a couple of RV dealers, and found those FIC locks, which are the common original equipment on many RV brands. I got to check out and measure the lock- which comes in black, white, or chrome.
It calls for a hole in the door about 1/2 the size you would need for the Bargman lock, so that's going to work just fine.

And I will have a couple of Bargmans for sale...
Thanks to all who wrote. TK

I shopped locks yesterday at a couple of RV stores- that FIC is pretty much generic for many camper brands; comes in black, white, or chrome. I'm going to go that route, since it's only about half the size of a Bargman, and has a deadbolt built in.

So- that leaves me with two used Bargmans, if anybody is looking...

Tom if you posted them under a new thread with a Bargman Heading in the for sale section I suspect you will get some pretty fast takers.

Fastec Door Lock

I don't know if you got your answers. I'm in the process of installing A Fastec Door Lock on our Scamp 19. I'm using instructions from Jack at
His instructions are quite detailed. I believe you must be a member of Yahoo's Scamper Modifications group to open it. Darral on the FGRV site has been very helpful on this project and has posted pictures, but nit as complete a set as Jack.

I bought the Fastec lock from Amazon for about $25. They offer them in white, black, or chrome, we got chrome. I did have to include a 1/4" spacer in order to tighten it onto the door.

I think this will be a very worthwhile improvement.

I replaced the stock latch with this lock: Decker 1042 Lock

I had to cover the old holes with a piece of white plexiglas, but this lock works much better than the stock assembly.
