Entry door latch and striker

Okay Monaco wizards. The part I thought was going to be easiest to find is stumping me.

The coach we bought doesn't have a working door latch. The only way to open and close it is with the deadbolt.

The door latch is there, but the hardware that would be the "striker" is not. I can't tell if the door handle actually works, but I'll know more tonight. It feels right, there's just nothing there for it to catch on to.

Now, all things being equal, I would bet the door latch failed and the previous owner removed the striker to be able to close the door.

Where, oh WHERE can I source a new door handle and latch for this thing?
I've hit a couple of the only junkyards but they are telling me "don't have." I'm guessing they would rather sell the entire door to someone...

My only suggestion is to begin calling the businesses on this list. RV surplus and salvage dealers.

I bought mine from Amazon. There are two types that I know of.
1. RV Designer T507 RV Motorhome Entry Lock with Deadbolt
2. NEW RECREATION PRO BLACK RV CAMPER TRAILER MOTORHOME PADDLE ENTRY DOOR LOCK LATCH HANDLE KNOB DEADBOLT
These are both on Amazon.
cut and paste these to Amazon to see them.
I hope this helps. Mike

Mike, thanks. I don't think those are the right size.

Salvage places are telling me I have to buy the entire door.

I guess really, all I need is the striker that bolts to the door frame. Anyone got a photo of that they could shoot for me? I see why it was removed...the door handle parts are frozen shut, but I think with some finagling I can get that working again. It would be nice to have a functioning door.
