Need to replace receptacles in a 76 Argosy

Hello all. the outlets in our 76 Argosy need to be replaced. The plug sockets are loose and don't hold a plug well anymore. Upon disassembly i was surprised to be faced with these outlets that I now understand to be used in mobile homes and apparently old airstreams. Do I try to source this style of receptacle or do you all replace them with something more conventional? There are no electrical boxes in the wall. These are called self contained receptacles.
Thanks for your time. G

They were also used in my 2010 and are still available. Here is one source:

You may find that there is insufficient depth for a conventional outlet box.

Vintage trailer supply sells the shallow outlet boxes that will fit in the trailer walls, if you decide to go with a conventional off-the-shelf receptacle.
