Splitting 30 Amp service

I was thinking of building a splitter for a 30 amp service. A 30 Amp RV plug to a junction box with a 30 Amp RV outlet and a 15 Amp household outlet.
I understand that I obviously can't run both lines at capacity and would need to keep the total under 30 Amp. (No AC; don't have a need to run any significant loads.)
This setup would give me a 30 Amp outlet for the popup and also an extra 15 Amp household outlet at the pole.
Has anyone seen anything like this?

Anyone ever have a need for something like this?

No reason you couldn't do that. Around here, most of the campground pedestals already have a 15-amp outlet in them as we'll. Doesn't your RV have an AC outlet on the outside that you could use?

Feed the 15 amp service from the 30 amp breaker. This way you can never pull over 30 amps. I would also add a 15-20 amp breaker to feed the 15 amp receptacle.
