30 amp connector for trailer

I'm looking to wire a cargo trailer for 30 amp service. I'd like to use the typical 30 amp straight blade extension cord I already have to make the connection. But I'm having a hard time finding the through wall male connector to mount on the trailer. Twist locks are easy to find but I can't seem to find the straight blade version?

Our Walmart carries them.
Where have you looked?
I've been searching on Amazon but don't see the straight blade versions. Only the twist.

Buy an adapter or change your cord end to what's standard and available.

You're looking for a plug in a receptacle configuration - never seen one - there's a reason they make twistlock connectors.

Your best bet is to install a twistlock receptacle and replace the female end of you extension cord with a matching twistlock connector or just get you one of these adapters:

Yup probably the best idea. Except I' may get one of these. Although since I have a 30 to 15 adaptor already....

That's exactly what I did with my cargo trailer project. I can use a standard 30 Amp cord if necessary but most of the time just use a 12 gauge 20 amp extension cord.

Install 30 amp twist lock plugs just like the RV manufacturers do.

You might try contacting Furrion to see if they have what you want. They manufacture a bunch of different power inlets in the 30 and 50 amp range.

You can also try Marinco.

Or, is this what you are looking for

That's a twistlock: but without the locking ring.
