Odd size plumbing

Does anyone know anything about the tubing size that goes to the bathroom and kitchen faucets. Something close to 1/4 inch tubing. But nothing Seems to be available to connect it to half inch or 3/8 pipe for tubing.

Probably what's happened is that the copper tube in the trailer has frozen at some point, and has expanded to a between size.
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Depends if it's ID or OD. ˝" OD comes in soft rolls and will not work with ˝" ID fittings. Same is true of other diameters. They come in ID or OD (also nominal) and the fittings are specific to the tubing. Post a pic of want tubings you wish to connect.

We had this in our first trailer...went to start our restoration and couldn't figure it out. Ended up replacing all the expanded copper with Pex.
