I had a similar problem on an old popup back in the 80s. The latch had been attached with screws going into the top frame rail.
After several failed attempts to secure the latch, I finally decided the only thing that was going to keep it attached was to drill out the holes, attach a metal backing plate on the inside of the top and bolt it in.
This worked so well that I did it with the rest of the laches.
