Let's remember that like most of the other components in our Sunlines, doors are not Sunline unique. They're RV industry standard items. While exact replacements for a door from 1983 might no longer be available, you can still purchase square frame RV doors in the dimensions needed for your unit.
The same is true of RV locksets and mechanisms.
There are a bunch of online RV parts catalogs than can be used to identify components. RV Parts Catalog - PPL Motor Homes
is just one of them. American RV Company Life Just Got Better Extensive RV Parts Accessories Catalog Motor Home Travel Trailer Fifth Wheel RV
is another. There are several more to be found with a bit of searching.
I would not utilize a regular locksmith for RV components unless you know that he/she has specific experience with RV's.
If you take some decent quality pics of the door and lockset and bring them with you to an RV dealer, they may be able to help you. But, as I have mentioned in many other posts, telling them you have a Sunline may generate a "we can't help you" response simply because Sunline is no longer in business and it's a brand that dealership doesn't carry.
If you can find an independent repair person in your area who specializes in mobile home and RV repairs, they could help you, too. I offer this because older mobile homes used RV components to a large extent, and there is now a significant demand for upkeep on these units.
Lastly, a simple Google search on "rv entry door"
(without the quote marks) yields several hundred thousand hits or more. Searching on "rv door lock"
is equally helpful.
Some of sorting this out is going to depend on your DIY abilities. The more comfortable you are with RV repairs and maintenance, the less challenging a door replacement or repair will be.
