Need Advice: Replacement Cargo Door Latches

Hi,

We own a 2004 Damon Daybreak and am looking for advice on replacing the baggage cargo compartment door latches. The stock ones just suck. They either spin and won't open or will not stay latched.

I have a neighbor who has an Intruder and his latches are the pull/lift style latches like on a car door and I wanted to know if they would work on our unit (with some modification of course).

Any advice on my options would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,
EdInMD

Rubbish arent they! )ver here in uk 90 to buy after import tax. They suffer from road dirt so I stripped mine down (circlip pliers and wd 40) cleaned and hey presto. But be careful "Boing" a spring will boing and try and photo how it comes apart. The one for the waste was completey broke so I got cheap fix with a tower sliding bolt.
