I believe it has to do with the DOT standards. The motor home entry door latch has to meet a higher level than that of the trailer door. This is because of passengers in the motor home while in motion vs the trailers not allowing passengers while in motion. I know that tri-mark had different door latches for out side compartment doors vs entry doors. Even though they looked the same. This was on ambulance and rescue trucks.
