Shower Faucet part needed

I am looking for a part for the shower faucet in my '77 Argosy. The old one has cracked in half and all attempts to glue it back together have been less than successful.

You can see a photo of it here:

This is a plastic part that has 1/8" fine threads on one end and what looks to be 1/2" course threads on the other. The small end screws into the output from the shower faucet and the hose from the shower head screws onto the wide end.

I do not want to have to buy a new faucet, as getting it installed would mean dismantling half of the bathroom to get access to the plumbing connections.

If all else fails, I could put together a "Rube Goldberg" set of plumbing adapters from a hardware store, but I would prefer to get the real part, if possible.

I checked Vintage Trailer Supply, but didn't see one there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If this screws into metal parts I would replace it with a brass fitting. Then you will never have to deal with it again. If it goes into plastic it must be replaced with plastic, or it will eventually split the part it is screwed into. Look at an RV specialty shop or a plumbing supply place. The gnome depot won't do.
