I am looking in one of our supplier catalogs, there 6 different manufactures in the one book that I have. Two of the manufactures offer these locks with Multi-Cam Lock, this means it will accommodate 5 different cams, the cam is the device that is on the back of the cylinder that keeps the storage door closed once it is locked. In this catalog the locks are called "LOCKS FOR MAILBOX SECURITY" Just a fancy name for furniture lock. All these locks are DISC tumbler locks, the cheapest money can buy. The next step up is a PIN tumbler lock but the cylinder is much larger like the one on your front door to your house. I don't think you would want that on a storage door on your RV. I am going to make some phone calls to day and see what I can find out. Just give me a little time and let me see what kind of info I can come up with.
