Boler door handle replacement

Just wondering if anyone knows if the door handle replacement set that Scamp sells would fit a 74 boler 1300. It looks similar with the L handle on the outside, the inside handle is a little different , here is a link to the picture of Scamp's inside handle assembly.
Outside Door Handle
Also vintage trailer sells a similar set, does anyone know if that one would work? I am aware that Paul Neumiester sells a replacement handle assembly for a boler 1300, but these other ones are are quite a bit less. Thanks for your help

My 1974 Boler's previous owners replaced the outer door handle with one they picked up at Scamp. I'm not sure if the previous one was broken or they lost the keys or what. They might have told me but I forgot.

The inner handle on mine looks very similar to the Scamp one too, but I'm not sure if it's original or a Scamp one. Mine has a hole halfway between the square hole and the handle where you can put a pin or etc. to "lock" the door when you are inside, but I don't see that on the Scamp inside part, so I'm not sure.

My inside handle does not look like the Neumeister one.

http://shop.scamptrailers.com/p-315-inside-door-handle.aspHi Raya, thanks for the reply. I realize my link showed the outside Scamp handle, here is the link for the Scamp Inside assembly.I believe what is on the inside of my door right now is the original setup,
the handle is narrow and curved similar to the Neumeister one,though I could be wrong. It sounds like maybe this Scamp setup might work...maybe!

Gill,

I went and had looked at both the inside and outside on Scamp's, Neumeister's and Vintage's sites. My inside handle looks very close to the Scamp/Vintage one except for having the "locking" hole. And I know my outside handle was new from Scamp in 2008 (inside looks older).

I see that the Vintage one sounds like it has some locking tab (where handle joins body?) on the inside. It may not be Fort Knox, but I think it would be nice to have, so of the two I would lean toward the Vintage one.

How did you get the price from Mr. Neumeister and would you mind sharing it? I didn't see them on the site and once in the past I e-mailed and called but did not get in touch with him (I did not persist through as it was not critical).

Raya

Thanks so much Raya for taking the time to look at those locks/handles. I really appreciate that. The Neumiester assembly is $135 plus shipping and handling which is quite a bit more than the others, but should fit a 74 no problem. I like the look of it but not the price so much! I got the the price from Paul Neumiester by phone recently, he was very helpful and knowledgeable. So there is my dilema....pay a lot and know it should fit, or take my chances on the scamp/vintage one for less money but have the hassle of trying to return/ship back if it doesn't fit... Thanks again Raya!
Gill

Alli, unfortunately you probably won't hear anything back from Gill or Raya:

Hopefully a current Boler owner will step in and give you some sound advice.

Good luck!

Hi Alli, I ended up buying the handle assembly from Vintage, but decided that the door would probably need to reworked and I have put the whole project on the back burner for now. I'm sorry I can't be of more help!

We replaced both inner and outer handle with Vintage Trailer Supply replacement handles. The two new pieces fit each other (obviously) but the inside lock differs on the new handle versus the old handle. Since we replaced both, we didn't try to fit them together, although size wise they are identical. They fit the old holes on the Boler ('72 13ft) door right down to the rivets. Can't vouch for Scamp's handle though.

thanks for the advice... didn't find any handles on vintage, at least not on their site. it appears one has to make an account just to ask them any questions so i guess i'll have to do that to find out if they can help with those parts. i'd really like to have a secure door, both for transit and for when we are camping so in between all our gutting/cleaning/painting/ reupholstering, this door latch thing needs to get done! LOL

Alli, I just searched Vintage Trailer Supply for "door handle." Is any of what I found, what you're looking for? Vintage Trailer Supply Door Handles/Locksets
