Fresh water fill

I need a water fill neck for a 1950s airstream. Does anyone have suggestions on locating an original one or pictures of one that I could duplicate? The part I need has a cap on the outside and passes through the trailer wall to the inside fresh water tank. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Steve

My sis has a 1960 that had this water fill. This is a repro from VTS.

The repro is very similar to the original. Original was an aluminum casting. The aluminum pipe has a Shraeder valve tapped into the side and a regular brass hose bib tapped into the cap which served as a hose refill.

If you choose not to go with an original style, the stainless type made for boats is an attractive option. This is the one I'm planning to use:

Thanks so mush for the picture of the original one. I really wished I could find one like this. Do you have one for sale by chance? Thanks, Steve

Sorry, but the trailer is put away for the winter and I can't get to it.
Anyone else?
