door handle

The door handle on my 1973 Trama(13' fiberglass egg trailer) does not latch tight and the door can open when driving over large bumps. A bungee cord will hold the door shut, but since the lock does not work I want to replace it with one that latches securely and locks for security. Anyone have any ideas on where to find a new locking door latch and how to go about the repair? Thanks.
Mike

here is a site with hinges and latches, don't know if they have what you want.

Do you have pictures of your Trama you could post? That's a new one for me.

door handle

I will try to post some pictures of the Trama in the near future but my wife is the computer literate person and I'll have to talk her into it. The interior layout of the trailer is exactly like the boler trailers of the same era. I don't really want to customize the door handle-just replace the old latch with one that works. Anyone know where to get replacement door latches for older Boler or Scamp trailers? I think that may be a start. Thanks
Mike

If it is same as Scamp, Scamp has them in parts catalog, inside part and outside part, $12US each. BTW, looks like outside handle could also be replaced by T-handle, like pickup shell latch.
