30 amp cord ends

I need help on the typical ends of the rv 30 amp power cord. I have been involved with boats for years and each end of a power cord rotates and locks into place. Recently I ordered a XLR Hyperlite 24hfs. It won't be here for 6 weeks so I am trying to get everything in order I just got a pair of 2000 Honda inverter generators and need a power cord. These gens came with an adapter that rotates in to the gen socket like I am used to to allow a simple 30 amp straight plug in. So is this the typical male end of the rv 30 amp power cord? Will this be the same when I plug into a power box at an rv site. It looks like the female end that attaches to the rv is the similar rotate and lock that I am accustom to. anyway I need to get a power cord ordered. So is this what I will need one with the non rotating male end and the rotating female end? Why don't they rotate on both ends to secure?

You unit should come with a power cord.
The normal 30a plug is just a push in pull out.
The end that connects to the trailer may be a twist lock, mine is hard wired in.

The rv cords are not the same for boats.
Hope this pic help.
You'll need an adapter for the generators, but that won't be a problem to do.
The 30amp on the left is for rv's.
