You should get a 30amp protector. If you ever have the need to plug into a 50 amp plug, use a 50 to 30 amp adaptor before the surge protector. I personally have never seen a power pedestal with a 50 amp connector and no 30 amp connector as well.

Depends on whether you plan to switch to a larger coach sometime down the road that has 50 amp service. If so, then you should buy the portable 50 amp and use a 50-30 amp dog-bone down to your present shore power cable.

The 50 amp only pedestals are rare but this past winter, I was staying at Beverly Beach Camptown RV Resort in Flagler Beach FL for two months and all of the sites only have 50 amp receptacles. They provide 50-30 amp dog-bones for rigs that are 30 amp.

If it were me, I would get the 50-amp unit. It's only a couple of bucks more and if your plans change in the future and the 30 amp unit is too small, it will cost a lot more.
