Main Panel Box Replacement

I want to replace the 120v, 30 amp main panel box in my 66 Tradewind. It is located in the bathroom closet in the left rear of the trailer. It is completely separate from the 12v fuse box that is located in the right rear of the trailer accessible from the rear hatch panel. Any recommendation for a panel box?

Can I just go to a local electrical supplier for a box?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You can get a replacement at Lowes, Home Depot, Menards or other big box stores.
It should have space available for all of the circuit breakers required for each circuit in the trailer, plus room for a main breaker.

The main breaker that TG talks about is just a back fed regular 30 amp breaker. It does not have to be a special box with a special main breaker.
