We are wondering if anyone knows the thickness of the storage doors used on sunnybrook 5wheels. We need to buy new storage locks before returning to our unit 10 hrs away and locks sizes a 5/8 and 7/8. I hate to buy both sets and have to wait 6 months before returning the wrong ones. Please help if you can.

Hope you are planning to buy the special "vending machine" type locks, otherwise save your money. The RV industry uses the same lock for all exterior storage doors- all using the same key.
I'd save my money, a screwdriver will quickly pop open virtually any RV storage door anyway.

Think about this for a minute folks.....

Is the door to the compartment made of steel and is it set into a strong steel frame ?

Is ANY outside compartment door constructed like that ??

I personally have never seen any outside compartment door made of anything but plastic composite board with an aluminum edging around it or in some cases the door has a thin aluminum skin on it to match the RV's skin...

and the doors are set in a very light weight frame that can be pulled apart with ease..

buying and installing a fancy heavy duty lock for those doors is kinda like putting a padlock on a cardboard box..

I have not seen an outside compartment door that I could not shove a sheath knife or a plain old kitchen knife into and cut out a hole or completely cut out the entire door panel.. in about 10 seconds time.....

Those compartment doors are on there to keep stuff from falling out onto the road as you travel. They are not meant for security...

I don't mean to throw a wet blanket on things folks, but sometimes you gotta stop and think about something more than once...
kinda like a carpenter's slogan "Think about it 3 times, measure it 2 times and cut it 1 time"

best wishes,
John
