OK, here goes... I'm attempting to upload pics of the drains and door latches.
That is the same lock that was used on my parents 1970 Bethany pop up, and also the lock that I used to replace the factory latch on my 2000 Scamp! I had to drill new holes in the door, plus fabricate a 'patch' of sorts to cover the old holes. If you are wondering, I found the latch at Hilltop RV, in Fridley, MN, and it cost a lot more than I expected; if I recall, it was over $65.

In my opinion, your lock is far better than the lock Scamp installs at the factory! With the factory latch, I had to manually close the door; with the new latch, I can 'slam' the door just like every other door.

Ditto to that, Dan. I enjoy the auto-shut feature of my Scamp's door. The standard latch seems crude in comparison. No instructions are provided, but it appears that you insert a nail in a little hole to restrict the handle's movement. That's the door lock? The Dexter Lock I have seems much more convenient. Mine is just worn out, and a new one is on the way. Thanks for all tips.

I think the problem with "slamming" the door has more to do with the strike plate than the latch. Look real close at how it's installed.
