1971 Caravanner Outside Outlet

Well, on our second camping trip with our "new to us" 1971 Caravanner, the hinge on the outside outlet door broke. I have temporarily installed a generic single exterior outlet cover (ugly!) to keep the weather out. The problem I ran into is that the original cover is 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches and the new standard cover is 4 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. I had to install the new ugly cover over the old plate just to cover the hole in my exterior. I have been searching online for something as pretty as the original (?) cover. I am attempting to attach photos to show the old pretty cover and the new ugly cover. Is the old cover original, and if so, where can I find one?

Thanks,
Ken
