Slam Latches

In process of adding Forest River's new slam latched on the drivers side and front cargo doors. Had to make a 3/4" spacer for the drivers side, none for the front door. Will post pics when completed.

I've been thinking about the same mod. Where did you get the latches from?

thanks,

Slam latches

Ordered right from Forest River. If you decide to order them, make sure they add one cover plate and keys. Didn't get either, altho a cover will not work on the side door due to it being only a little under 3/4" thick. You will have to fab a cover and a spacer at least 3/4" thick. The factory cover will work on the front door tho.
