I wasn’t happy with the looks of the factory latch. It reminds me of the cab that covered the back of my dad’s truck. Also, I was concerned that it stuck too far out into the wind and would cause drag. So I found these which are very solid metal and have a much smaller footprint. I did have to make the hole in the door a little larger and I had to file down the place where the lever attaches to the latch. It definitely doesn’t have as much of a handle to put your hand on but there is plenty of surface area to get a good enough grip to open the door. You can’t tell from the picture but it does have a lock built into it. All in all it was a pretty simple conversion. If you decide to do the same you can find these latches here, https://www.etrailer.com/CCNTRL/Pop-and-Lock/PAL9585.html
