    When you say Tabbert, is it an FFB. If so you will be best taking a photo of it and posting. Tabbert have not made motorhomes for some years, but items like door locks will be a generic item.

    I had to replace the door lock on my Tabbert 660, and found that a Caraloc 640 (from ebay) fitted perfectly. I replaced the entire unit.

    The one I had was badged up as a Peugeot, but had the 2.5 turbo diesel from Citroen. It was the same engine as the Citroen CX, which back in the day was the fastest production diesel car in the world. That camper would fly, and you could easily get into trouble with it. Keep your eye on the speedo when on the motorway. A very good motorhome indeed and well put together.
