That appears to be very similar to what I would be replacing. Thanks!

Looks like a nice convenience item, especially if you have a lot of family members going in and out of a locked trailer. For us, not being full timers or even anywhere close to that, I can't justify the cost for the convenience side of the equation.

Does it provide any better security than the factory locks? That is, is it harder to break the door open with these locks?

I see there are several questions about which models our handles fit. Our RVlock Keyless handles fit almost all fifth wheels, travel trailers, and campers. If you would like to verify, you can take a quick measurement and match it with our specs found here http://www.rvlock.com/pages/specs

Our handles are built stronger than standard handles and are also more secure because we use a wide range of unique key codes. Standard handles have very few key codes available meaning many rigs are keyed the same. We have a large number of key codes that only fit our handles, greatly lowering the chances that someone else's key would open your rig. Our handles are built with security in mind just as much as convenience.

Question for RvLock: How long before motorhome option available?
Our motorhome handle is in development but I do not have an estimation of it's release at this time.

I'm not trying to be argumentative but I suspect that if a thief wants in your trailer, they'll try a crowbar, not a key or a code. So, if your locks can provide more resistance against forced entry that would be of more value to me since the convenience advantage is not as important.

The standard door locks are tough to break into. The RV next to us one night needed to break in because the lock failed. We spent an hour without success. We finally popped a window and sent a kid in thru it. So they are built tough.

Does RV Lock have a staff? I have emailed them via their web site, to rvlock@sales.com and rvlock@support.com and have not received a reply. I started emailing Wednesday evening and two times on Thursday. It is now very early Friday morning and nothing from them in response. I purchased a lock and there is a problem with it. Will the rvlock person who monitors this site check your email and get back with me please. Order SHP#1627
