If temporary you can use 30 amp 120 volt and a dog bone using only 1 AC.

We've had a lot of posts about folks attempting to adapt 220V clothes dryer outlets for RV use and end up doing serious damage. Only 110 volts should ever be applied to the rig, if uncertain about how to do it an electrician competent in RV requirements is a must.

50A is 240V split phase. Yes, an electrician should be called if you don't know how to wire 240V split phase.
