Description Field Notes

The Bargman H20-2 door handle is more than simply a way to open a trailercoach door; it is a functional work of art.

Because of its adaptability and style, it was used widely on high-end trailers from 1948 to 1958, when more modern angular models such as the Bargman L-77 became popular.

The H20-2 handle/bezel combination had two design features that made it particularly flexible for use by different trailer manufacturers, like Airfloat, Spartan, Mobile Sportsman, Lintzcraft and Airstream.

  1. The circular design of the handle/bezel interface allowed the bezel to be installed with the key cylinder either above or below the handle. The handle itself could then be installed in the 3, 6 or 9 o'clock position.
  2. The spring-loaded handle could also be lifted over obstructions (such as Airstream's "door within a door" raised panel) as the handle was turned through its arc. When released, it tucked back in close to the door's surface.
Unfortunately, this second feature (along with the brittle pot metal from which it was cast) probably led to most of the breakage suffered by these handles as they were mistakenly pulled straight out (not turned) and broken off in an attempt to open the locked door.

Each of our Bargman H20-2 reproduction door handles is investment cast in a labor-intensive process. Unlike sand casting, this method perfectly reproduces every detail or the original, including the original part numbers on the back of the handle. Each handle is triple chrome plated and polished by hand. And since they are cast in tough aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, they are sure to last the lifetime of your trailer.

Hand polished. Supplied with new split pin.
