Our "Lady Athena"

Named for our granddaughter - she is a 1973 Dodge Sportsman - just getting ready to start restoration - planning to leave original what we can and won't get the paint job done until next year - does run but needs a tune up and a water pump - could really use help if anyone here knows where we can get parts, such as the "frame" and door that goes over the gas cap. lock for the back door (the door is on back not on side) - mostly cosmetic needs. Also hoping to add a cargo carrier to the back that will have fold-up steps to get in/out - just have to find someone to either make it or alter a pre-fab one.

New travel trailer/preloved preenjoyed

Looks like a nice unit. Maybe with an exterior scrub you won't need a paint job. Keep us posted

Post photos of what you need. Many RV parts are shared in common across many brands. Someone may recognize what you have as what they have or recently had to replace.

As for the door latch, I'd take it off and head to my friendly neighborhood RV dealer's parts department. They may have something that would work, or may be able to use numbers on the old piece to track something down for you. Again, I doubt your lock was proprietary to your brand/model.
