Single pole or double pole?

I am putting in an outlet to plug in my 1999 Tropical 6330. It's 30AMP and not sure if I should run single pole or double pole breaker.

30 amp is single pole 120 volt service. Do not use double pole 240 volt service. It's not like a clothes dryer.

If you plan on moving up someday, you could run 50 amp 120/240 service. That uses a double pole breaker. But then you need to use an adaptor to only access one pole of the 50 amp service for your 30 amp RV.

If it were me and the run is not to far, I would install a 50 amp 2-pole receptacle. This way you are prepped if you ever upgrade to another coach. Adapters to your 30-amp cord are cheap and are needed in your arsenal when you travel. If you install a 30 amp receptacle, it is a single pole.
