Best way to run 50amp to exterior

I need ideas for running my 50amp elec cord from inside the trailer to the exterior for plug in. The trailer was gutted when I got it so I'm not sure how it was originally. Not to worried about keeping it original so I am open to any ideas. Thanks

We have a second A/C unit on our '34 Limited that was added after the fact, so it has it own separate cord with 30 amp plug. There is a small cubby in the rear trunk that houses the dedicated 30 amp breaker box and the length of cord, then on the rear exterior streetside corner they drilled an access hole and mounted an RV electrical cover/cap for the cord to come out and run to the plug in's. When not in use the cord just retrieves into the access and the plug end stores just inside under that cover. I dont really like the ugly white plastic look of it, but, it's not THE ugliest thing on the exterior of the AS, so I live with it.

This is a little pricey, but it may be what you're looking for: 50 Amp 125/250V Stainless Steel Easy Lock Shore Power Inlet - Marinco | Fisheries Supply

I have used many variations of their pigtails and cables.
