I installed the 50amp SmartPlug on my travel trailer 2 months ago. One of the best mods I have made since I bought the trailer. The second best mod was installing the MORryde REEL56-001H Easy Reel Cord Spooler to wind up my 50amp cord.

Well, they actually do make one, or at least there’s one made with the Hubbell name on it. I’ve got one in my stash of emergency parts I carry in the camper. It will work in a pinch, but it’s a very “ugly” connector, and due to where mine has to plug in to the generator outlet (no transfer switch) I really need a plug with the molded in finger-pull handle.

This cord body is much better then the Keller bakelite one if properly installed.

I’ve got the mini version of that plug. Fits where I need it to fit.

The Minis are good. The larger one is better because it offers more cord protection. Small is ideal where space is limited. It is good idea to coat internal connections with electrical grease.

I bought several different replacement 30TT plugs for shore cords to find the best one. The one I prefer is the Progressive Industries TT30P. It is larger than most and doesn't have a pull handle, but this allows the door to close on top of it at the pedestal. It is easy to install on the cord and has four screws to hold the housing together, most use two or three. The cord grip area inside is large so you won't have the cord jacket pulling out of the body of the plug.
