Traveling the country in a 1971 Buick Convertible, towing a highly polished 1966 Tradewind!
This ‘latch’ fits behind the grab handle of many
Airstreams with forward opening doors, sometimes referred to as a suicide
doors. Door latches on vintage coaches with worn parts have occasionally opened at high speed causing
serious damage to the coach. This simple security latch can prevent this from occurring and is a must-have item.
Consider adding this to your departure check list and store the latch in a visible place to help you remember. The window ledge next to the door is an easy memory jogging 'eye catcher' as you are locking up. Safe travels - Neil
