1/4" seems small to me. It's likely 3/8 or 1/2". Try a local large propane supplier like suburban propane. Some that have the big tank trucks have the capability to make hoses. There are lots of places online that sell them.

Check OODM. They have some didn't look to check fittings. VTS has some just have to check fit.

Our "local large propane supplier" doesn't have them.
One the male inverted flare.
The male inverted flare are 10 times more common than the NPT.
I have looked at dozens of websites just like that to no avail.
I called Airstream and got the Airstream part number and Manchester Tank Part number.
I called Manchester tank. They won't sell to individuals, only to factories.
I guess I could check out an Airstream dealer, but it has been my experience in the past that shipping is more than the cost of the item being shipped.
So I took my second shot in the dark on Amazon.
I really think there are only 2 types of RV propane hose connectors- male inverted flare, which I have already bought and found to be wrong, and NPT (national pipe thread?) which is what I believe I have.
The type/style/brand of regulator may determine which type of pigtail.
The type/style/brand regulator on a Classic may be different from the other trailers?
The lady at Airstream emailed me PDFs on 2 styles of regulators- one I've never seen before and 1 like is on my trailer. Maybe the difference is the regulator that automatically switches to the other bottle when one is empty? Maybe they all do that? I don't know.
We'll see if the Camco NPT propane hose connectors I bought off Amazon will work when they get here.
Maybe they will.
If they don't it's back to the drawing board- Airstream dealer or Vintage Trailer Supply.

Google Ebay for fittings, also could change regulators to have standard size hoses.

Any Google search, Ebay search, or Amazon search yields dozens of male inverted flare connectors.
I ordered some Camco NPT ones from Amazon.
2 of Camco 59843 20" Pigtail Propane Hose Connectors - Acme x 1/4" Male NPT
Sold by: 4Wheel Online
$25.09
I don't see any others on any other website other than the 1/4", which I assume is talking about the inside diameter of the hose?
Or is 1/4" referring to the part that pushes into the tank fitting when you turn the green knob?

It is a little confusing what you need as talking all dif. sizes acme etc. green knob, tank regulator fitting etc. What goes into top of propane tank is valve that large size male fitting w/male push into valve. All standard regulators have inverted flare fitting that hose or copper tubing screws into. One end into tank valve other into reg. [there are some regulators that use npt] I have never seen them in my life time as I have always used standard regulator. Acme threads are what is female in tank valve pig tail end. Acme thread is not commonly used but to stop misuse of IMO critical uses.

So my regulator is different.
Is that an Airstream thing or a Classic thing or an automatic switching regulator thing?

I'm having a hard time picturing your set up. I know all the parts you're talking about but can't picture what's where. Picture possible?

You might be able to simply get a brass adapter to transition from flare to pipe thread they are available at most big box hardware stores.

I think the yellow Teflon works better than pipe dope in this application.

I do not have the Cavagna regulator, but a different brand.
I wonder if I could change the inlets to the regulator to female inverted flare and use the male inverted flare pigtails I already bought. That could be an option.
I do have the NPT hose connectors coming.
Not in a real big hurry.
It is still 91 degrees every day here, but I might need heat by Thanksgiving.
One thing at a time.
Got my new jack installed.
Got my Baked Potato official name registry medallion applied.
Got a bunch of camping reservations and rallies.
It'll be ah-ite.

this maybe?

the fittings coming off your regulator might be changed out as well, but i think the fitting above would work if I am picturing your dilemma.

"I wonder if I could change the inlets to the regulator to female inverted flare and use the male inverted flare pigtails I already bought."

Can't see why this wouldn't be possible. Is there something screwed into the regulator already. Can't see why you couldn't remove and replace them.

the fitting I linked to above might do the trick in this case as well. I was going to mention this, but that's partly why I am a little confused. having a male npt to femal npt fitting coming off the regulator is a redundant fitting if the pigtail is npt as well. just screw the npt pigtail into the regulator. does that make sense?
