I guess I missed allot. The original post asked if the 50A to 30A dog bone added, at the camper, to a 50A cord from the pedestal should be 6 Gauge wire. The answer is no. All you are going to get into the MH is 30A. You can put that dog bone at the pedestal and all you will get is 30A. Putting it at the pedestal makes allot more sense because the 50A cord will drop less voltage.

Did I miss something?

YES you missed the OPs post about it being a 50A to 50A Twist Lock adapter and correct wire size
See Post #4

You did not miss anything, you made an assumption. Nowhere in the original post does it mention 30 amp, only the 50 amp "adapter or dogbone" It possibly could have been 30, or 20 o 15 amps.

Ultimately in post #4 there was clarification of what the OP was attempting, which is a 50 amp, 90* adapter.

But a 50a dogbone is limited to the LOWER RATED END, whether that be 30a, or 20a, so 10g can fit the 30a plug, where 6ga would be difficult, and amps should never exceed the lower rating.

Yes, if it has 2 different ends. The one in question has 50 amps on both ends.

Here is what the OP was asking about.
