Need a duplicate key made

I have a 2008 Fleetwood Orbit. Only have one key and would like to have a duplicate made. Lowe's and Walmart do not have the blank that I need, where do you usually have your duplicates made?

Just for the halibut I googled "keys made in cynthiana, ky" and 3 or 4 locksmiths came up with 4 more perhaps close by in other towns.

If there is a Dealer close to you ask them. When we needed duplicates for our Journey CW gave us names/numbers for several local locksmiths that had blanks.

Duplicate key

A hardware store like one has been around
A long, long time (not to give my age away 40s) LOL
A five & dime...anyways hope you find one because
their the least expensive of your choices, not to mention
that they are happy to just have your business.

Ace Hardware usually has a lot of TT blanks for whatever reason!

Which key needs duplicating?

The Tri-Mark door keys on my Damon interuder are hard to find, Even many locksmiths do not have them.. Gilroy's "DO IT" hardware has some of them and I have gotten lucky at major locksmiths on occasion.

The igintion key .. Wal-mart had a blank that worked fine, The key tech was not sure it would work but I have different standards and it worked .. er.. works,,, fine. The OEM is on my ring, the dup is what I have in the ignition.

My Damon only came with one set of door keys too (latch and deadbolt). None of the local hardware stores nor Walmart had the blanks...even the mega-hardware stores (Lowes and Home Depot) couldn't help.

All the local RV dealers directed me to our regional service center - "La Mesa RV"...$4 each - no waiting

We're lucky to have a big service center in town, so don't feel like it's just your RV...these common RV door locks are really not that common outside the RV business.

Great granddaughter lost a set of door keys to my 2001 Sprinter 25RKS 5er. We had one set left, so I went looking for someone to cut a duplicate in/around Austin TX. No luck, but one locksmith suggested we drive way out south of town to a huge RV dealership. They had one blank and suggested we drive across I-35 to another huge RV dealership to get another one. That one had two or three blanks. Not cheap. I think they were $6 or $7 each for the blanks. And neither one of those dealerships cut the keys, but both suggested we try Lowes'.

We lucked out and found the key cutting expert was on duty at Lowes. He cut the keys, then said the service was free. Free? Yeah, free. Lowes charges you for the blanks, but the key cutting is free if you have a master key to cut from. Even if you have to buy the blanks somewhere else because Lowes doesn't have them in stock.

And all 3 new keys worked perfect in the door of the 5er.

We had extra Keys made for our Jayco travel trailer. They are made by Bauer Products, if your key was made by them it should have there name on it and a number. Call 1-866-682-2837 or look on the internet.
Good Luck!

Tri-Mark key blanks may be purchased via the internet, just run a search. I bought two from an RV dealership then had them cut at a locksmith shop.

I have priced Tri-mark blanks via the internet.. OUCH!!!! Way cheaper at Gilroy's DO-IT hardware and I shop there often.

You don't always get the best deal on the net.
