We just purchased & picked up our mpg183 this weekend - our first RV. We are so impressed with the trailer for the value - a perfect fit for our family with 2 kids (ages 4 & 9).

However, new to RVs, we learned that storage doors use a common key. Not an issue... until we opened the "bike door" during our purchase walk thru & my "mom eyes" saw the bunk where my children will be sleeping. As a parent, it seems this larger door REALLY should be keyed with a non-universal key. I would suggest the best option to have it keyed the same as the main door. We will certainly be modifying this before we take our children camping.

There are a number of sources for different locks and keys. Even a reputable locksmith should be able to help you out with the change. Most RVers are comfortable with the 721 key and don't even bother to lock the doors when they are in the RV park. BTW there are even alarms you can get for the doors if that is a concern.
