Both frames and doors on my coachmen 320bhds appear to be the same.






If/when you do end up doing the swap, please post the information as to parts, difficulty, etc...

I have the same rig and would like to do the same.

Thank you for the response, Do you have a part number or price for the latch assembly, or should I contact my dealer? I would rather buy direct or my dealer verses going to a different supplier.

Hi Mr. Coleman, no I donít have a part number as we donít have them specíd into our units. Perhaps at the dealer level they might have a direction you can go.
Kind regards,

This may not be what you are after but looking at the photo of the thumb/twist latch - which is similar to what I have on my coach, I am considering a push button latch replacement: Recreational Vehicle Parts, Recreational Vehicle Accessories, Recreational Vehicle Hardware, Recreational Vehicle Drapes, Recreational Vehicle Curtains, Recreational Vehicle Curtain

They do have a non-keyed version: RV Parts, RV Accessories, RV Hardware, RV Drapes, RV Curtains, RV Curtain

Also these are for consideration (both in keyed and non-keyed): BRD by RV Designer

BRD by RV Designer

And then finally, they do have various Trimark locksets: TriMark by RV Designer

Southco Latch; Baggage Door Lock; Locking Black ‚Äď Lippert Components, Inc Online Store

Ironically I searched the outdoor kitchen door for a tag I found the mfg label. After browsing for a blank door with no holes I found the Southco baggage door latch. It appears they sell a lot to the RV industry. I still sent them a email curious if you can get a blank kitchen door with decals.

Well with some excellent help from Lippert Components Lippert Components, Inc. I have two latches and components headed my way! $113 later

Once they are installed I will either plug the holes from the old locks/latches or come up with some type of matching decal to cover them.

interested to see how this goes for you. I noticed your slam latches on your forward baggage doors are actually different than the ones on 2013. My wife hates them, they are pretty stiff for her to open.
