You're looking for a "converter" and you can find these at your local RV center. "Inteli Power" is one model name made by brand name "Progressive Dynamics" and this one is probably the most popular replacement model among members on this Forum.

You can also find them online in many places:

Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies!

Converters, Inverters, 12V Electric

Good luck!

I have a 1973 Overlander which is 30 amp. You should have on your trailer just above the bumper on the left side a tag which tells you how many amps your trailer used. Stay within that amperage. Do not go higher.

I bought my 1973 last fall and bought a new converter after reading many threads about the old airstream univolt. I was patient and took my time researching the internet. I bought my univolt new. It was a 3230 30 amp parrallax which was discontinued. I got a great deal on it. It was under $100 dollars. I used the fuse panel from the old univolt and had it connected to the new parrallax. It works great!!!! I also had an electrician go over my electrical and had him put in a 50 amp 220 Volt electical panel seperate from my 30 amp box. If I ever decide to go camping at my property I may need that extra electricity. the 50 amp is not hooked to the RV electical system. I have a 30 amp plug for the Trailer and a 50 amp plug for anything I might need. Two seperate breaker boxes.

Check out the thread and you can see the converter I installed.
