Here's picture of a couple you could get. The one on the right is similar to the one i took out. The one on the left is a light switch that came out of my boat, I like it because it's a push-pull switch, but it may be too deep to use in the airstream.

Toastercoaster, that's a nice trailer you have there.

You're a little late with the switch, I threw it away about 4 hrs ago. It was a simple hardware store toggle switch.

Maybe that porch light was an Ohio thing. I have one in the same spot as Mark's that had the same bulb as Mark's. It worked for my first two camping trips, then the bulb exploded off the base when I switched it on. But I'm confused about the voltage also. It worked on 110, but the bulb looks like a 12V. And 12V makes more sense. The bulb socket is so rusted I need to replace it, but haven't looked into it yet.

You can buy one at an auto parts store just make sure it has the same number of wires. I replaced the one in the overhead porch light on our 71. Think the socket was like $3.00.
