I bought this quality fuse panel for both of my Airstreams:

12V RV Fuse Box

Do you have power going to your old fuse block?

This fuse panel will still work for what you want. You'll still have six circuits to spare using this fuse panel. The three 50amp protected circuits on your panel are for your main 12v power feeds and your one ground feed. Just use 50amp breakers to protect these. That's what I did for my '72 and yours is wired pretty much the same.

The 3 connectors at the top of the panel sold by VTS are for your 12v feeds; the negative bus bar on the side is where you connect your battery ground. The 12 circuits are for your individual circuits going to your trailer.
