Another idea is to get the right angle head cord and get the plug end to convert your existing cord to an extension cord like I did.

I bought both the cord and cord end from camping world - I got the cord on sale for $69 and I think the end was like $20

WalMart has the RV 30amp-30' and 50' lengths in the RV section in Auto Dept. Cheaper than most RV dealers for same cord !!

are you that weak you can't carry an extension cord
maybe 20lbs if that so I doubt you will have issues carrying one

I am talkin a 30 amp cord at 25 feet -
My suggestion to you is to buy the right angle cord and take the cord end apart that attached to the camper and put a female plug on that cord and whalla you have an extension cord and a nice right angle cord to plug into your trailer - probably about the most length you will ever need.

a 50 amp cord has more copper and does weigh more but I seriously doubt you will have an issue carrying either one

The 50' 50 amp one I have is heavy but a 30 amp 30' is easy to carry.

Well....as I have said in other threads, I will need a very long 30amp cord.
The outlets at the Provincial Parks I have booked are between 22-28m (66-84 ' )away.

Get a 50' and a 30' and you should be covered out to 105'.
