Male - Male 4 Wire Flat Cable?

I tore up my current cable connecting my toad to my motorhome that I bought back in 2013. I cannot find a replacement cable for this. Right now I have it spliced, but I would like a spare.

It needs to be male on both ends and 6' long. I also figured I could find a female to male adapter, but I cannot find anything like this either.

Wow - they are proud of that. It is three times what I paid for a male/female one.

I found that, but it is only 3' long. I also checked the shipping and it was $15.

When I damaged my old and good cable I had to splice the male end of my old cable onto the new male/female cable that I bought from Walmart. I may have to just get a 1' male end and splice in onto the new male/female cable in place of the female end. At least this time I can do a better job being I have more tools and electric wiring parts at home.

Would it be easier to change the connector on the toad so a more available cable could be used.
This way if you damaged another cable it'd be a plug and play operation.

Raymond-

For $17.53, these two parts:

https://www.etrailer.com/Wiring/Draw-Tite/18172.html
https://www.etrailer.com/Wiring/Hopkins/HMC20031.html

Or, as you suggest, splice together two of these, for $12.46:

https://www.etrailer.com/Wiring/Draw-Tite/18044.html

The pre-made cable (at $27.46) has caps, and with its molded ends may stand up better than putting an end on a cable yourself.

Here it is on Amazon Prime for $7.00, but it's make to female. At the bottom of the page you can buy the male end for $4.00. Splice them together for $11.00.
