'97 Rexhall storage door latch replacement

Hi, I have recently bought a '97 Rexhall Aerbus. 2 of the black push button storage door latches are broken and I'd like to buy a replacement set. I've researched this site as well as the Internet and it appears as though the latches were made by Southco. I saw a part number of C5-34-45 and researched it on Southco's website. It seems to be close but it shows a door thickness max of 1.66". I am under the impression that the '97 Aerbus doors are 2". Before I call Rexhall or Southco, I'd like to see if anyone has actually found and ordered a replacement part? Do you have a specific part number and source!

Thank you for your help!

Sorry, I cant answer your question but I have called Rexhall and talked to Alex (if he is still there). He was able to supply significant information and did not try to sell parts from Rexhall. Also the Rexhall tech support email worked well but took several days for an answer.
I have a Rexair and when I worked on my bay doors to replace the insulation they appeared to be about 1.5" thick.

I had a 97 Rexhal Airbus same issue with latches. I fabricated a L bracket and screwed it on to the bottom edge beside the defective latch and it worked great.
