Bought the 50' and have had to use it a couple of times in the last 8 yrs. Better to have too much cable than to have a 25' extension and still be about 3-4' short. Once the 50' is purchased, it doesn't cost anything to store.

If I need more than 55 feet of power cord I would just plug in to the generator.

I carry 2 - 25 foot extension cords. No sense losing any more voltage than necessary to get power to the camper. I camp at 2 places where a 100 foot extension is needed and only pack it when going there. AC usage can be a problem due to voltage drop in that long a run.

Watch your voltage on AC start up.
