I'm thinking ,if it's a lock box they didn't use the ever popular CH751 but who knows. I have lock box under mattress with barrel key I have to get a spare made its not the usual RV key.
Looks like they chose a place to toss wallets and bigger key rings ect in before setting out to explore and be able to reach in door to retrieve.
Wasn't a lock box but I had a wall mail/file basket right by door of old TT one thing I miss . Was the perfect place to stow flashlights ,bug spray hang keys.

Hmm, sounds like you're from Canada. 20 cm x 20 cm. lol. That's way cool. Maybe it's a small Gun safe? But at this point, since the rig is from 1993 it could be a Time capsule.
I don't know much about picking locks, That's why I got AAA, part of the membership benefits is free "Lock picking" 3x a yr.

I'm sure the OP has already took action but,,,

That looks like one of those cheapy cam locks. If so, it offers little security. The little arm that does the latching bends fairly easily so a big screwdriver and a few seconds would be all that's needed to pry the door open. Afterwards, the arm can be bent back (if a key is found) or another cam lock can be bought. Only a few bucks and easy to install.

Fantastic replies so far but unfortunately I am away from my motorhome for the weekend and am waiting to crack it open. Will have to wait a few days!

This is worse than one of those old Lost In Space "continued next week" scrawls as the weird monster advances on the group.

Like a lot of others, I'd pick it. Even if you're not great at it, it will take less time than waiting for a locksmith. These type of locks aren't that tough.
Lot's of info on how to do this on the intertoobs.

I'd also look at worn gas cap or glove box keys that have the same keyway shape.

I had a mobile locksmith come and rekey my front door on the house a while back. Cost 60 bucks to rekey two locks so they used the same key, plus made me a couple of sets of keys, and pulled both locks completely apart to clean lube and tweak them so they opened real smoooooth. Seemed like a reasonable price.

Hope there's something fun in there!

Wow 60 bucks for ALL that? that's a steel. I commend that locksmith, not like the other thieves in the industry.
