Bauer Electric Door Lock

It sometimes feels like RV manufacturers enjoy choosing the most antiquated technology possible when building a camper and the door lock is a perfect example.  The NE Bauer Electric Door Lock for travel trailers and 5th wheels is the answer to getting that door lock into the 21st century. The Bauer NE features a touchpad lock which allows you to program a 4-digit PIN for security and convenience. This allows anyone in the family to get into the camper even when the person with the key is not around.  Here are a few more great features you’ll find in a Bauer Electric Door Lock:

  • The first self-contained electronic RV latch with Capacitive Touch Technology.
  • An integral touch pad to the latch which controls the dead bolt.
  • It is powered by 4 AA batteries (not included).
  • Is retrofit-able in most travel trailer and 5th wheel trailer entry doors, and is easy to install.
  • Programmable with a 4 digit PIN number.
  • The large buttons are easy to see and use.
  • Proximity sensing which illuminates the buttons.
  • An Intelligent Keyless Entry System which knows the position of the deadbolt and indicates low battery strength, as well as providing audible feedback to successful locking and unlocking functions.
  • The key will always be able to work the paddle or dead bolt lock in case of the user forgetting the code or Bauer Electric Door Lock has a dead battery


If your current door lock has these dimensions the Bauer NE will fit your door.

I have been camping and RV'ing with my Wife and 2 children for the past 20 years. We began our RV'ing careers in a 1995 Jayco pop-up camper which we got caught in the rain in every time we used it. In 1998 I found a 1989 Winnebago Chieftain 23' Class A motorhome which we loved. During that time I was always looking online for good RV information but unable to find it. So I decided to start a website called which is a forum for RV'ers to share information. We wanted a family friendly site in which members were willing to help each other and leave the drama out. In 2000 I purchased our first new RV which was a 30' Coachmen Mirada Class A. For a new RV I had to make a lot of modifications to this motorhome just to make it a road worthy RV. My displeasure with traditional RV's lead me to Truck Conversions and in 2002 we built our first Showhauler motorhome. In 2004 we built our second Truck Conversions which was an improvement over the first, but a trip to the Winnebago factory in 2006 sealed my fate with the rest of the family who saw a Winnebago Vectra diesel pusher in our future. So in 2006 we made the move and enjoyed traveling the country in that until 2010 when we thought we would downside since the kids were off doing their own thing. Somewhere in that time we found ourselves with way to many irons in the fire and decided to focus all our energy on as well as another business we own and thus said goodbye to This was a very tough decision since we had made so many RV'ing friends and great memories, but times had changed and it was time to leave it in new hands to continue it's growth. In 2010 we downsized to a Winnebago Cambria Class C which I really liked, but we quickly found was not the most roadworthy choice for long range travel. So in 2012 we went back to Showhauler and with all of the updates they made to their product found the last motorhome we will ever buy. (Sound familiar) There is never a last RV you'll ever buy when your a die-hard RV'er :-)
