I bought the Bauer EM Model. This one works for motorized RVs. it has the dual pin latches that are required by law.

list price is 399.00 but you can get it way cheaper than that. I bought mine from eBay for 219.00 including shipping. Well valued upgrade.
The tricky piece of this installation is that you have to remove the baseplate from the door along with the entire lock to get the lock out. It will not release unless you do it.
Next tricky piece is after you do the install based on the video instruction, you will have to shave the door trim on the outside to get the handle to engage with the strike plate. If you do not shave it, the door hits against the trim and will not close. I used a Roto Zip with a diamond tile bit to shave the metal down on the door frame so that the door could engage with the strike place.
Final tricky part is that you have to remove the inside door trim to get to the spacing gap between the door and the RV. This is where the strike plate lives. This is easy as you remove the button covers and the screw is underneath. You have to remove the original strike plate and replace it with the Bauer edition. It is a bit tough to get out by prying the gap open with a screwdriver as the video suggests--in fact does not work all that well. i used a screwdriver and a hammer to force the strike plate out after removing all that other stuff. Once it is out, it is a breeze to put the new one in place and tighten down. I took a few more pics and will post so that you can see what I am talking about.
