Question Tubular style security locks for 5th wheel entrance door

I wish to replace the factory door locks on my Excel with with a higher security tubular style door handle/lock assembly. Any experience with source information would be very helpful. I have already located the tubular locks I want for the storage bays.

I've never seen any kind of locking mechanism on a fifth wheel, like the one you want.

I would like to welcome you to iRV2 though!

Most people don't even lock them. They are only 5/8-3/4" thick. Would do serious damage breaking in and a lock will not stop them.
