30 amp plug 1964 Trade Wind

I just bought a 1964 Trade Wind and the 30 amp plug is different than a modern 30 amp plug. I have read that it is called a Theo Bargman 30 Amp plug, but how can I get an adapter or use this configuration? The original owner says it has not been plugged in in years, this is probably why....
thanks in advance for the help.

Easiest thing to do would be to cut the original plug off and put a new one on. They are available at most RV dealers and even Home Depot has them usually.

If you don't feel capable of changing it out yourself, take it to an RV repair place and have them do it, should not be much more expensive than some adaptor you would get.

I like the Marinco Inlet. I've found good deals on it on eBay.

The connection is designed to be used on boats, so it's quite safe. I'm not at all worried about keeping it connected during the 2-3 inches of rain we're getting here in Texas tomorrow.

Got the electric working this weekend. All the plugs work and only the lights in the bathroom and over the sink in the kitchen don't work yet. I replaced the old rotten 30 amp wire and plug with new ones to get the electricity going. All other wiring looked pretty decent without rot. thanks for the help
