Does anyone know what kind of plug-in adaptor I need?

Hi there to the group. I'm taking the family on our first week-long Airstream camping trip in two weeks, and have just learned that I am missing my AC connector cable from the power on site to our airstream. It's a late 50's model, and this is what it looks like. It doesn't seem like a standard pin, can anyone help advise me on exactly what kind of pin this is, what it's called, and where to buy it?

Also--I'm not sure if this is original or not, perhaps it was upgraded by a later owner. I'm 3rd owner on this, bought it about five years ago.

Many thanks!

It is a 120 Volt 15 Amp male, Any 15 Amp cord, will do

It is a change from the original, but as Wolfe says, a standard 15 amp 120 volt extension cord with a single outlet on the end which will fit into the circular hole will work.

I would suggest a 20 amp cord. The same receptacle configuration.
I assume you do not have an AC unit.

Does your Caravanner have an air conditioner? If not, you're in fine shape and any good extension cord with a female end that fits into the recess should be fine. If you do have rooftop AC, this power inlet is a bit light.

That said, apparently the previous owner of my 28' trailer ran it for years on a 20A extension cord (with a 15A plug hanging under the trailer as the inlet) but that may be why the trailer no longer has its original Armstrong AC unit.
