I saw a Y adapter plug that takes two 30 amp and combines them into a 50 amp. It costs like $110... for a plug...

Options?

I was even thinking of just using my 30 amp to 15 amp adapter for the trailer since it doesn't use much electricity anyway.
It's not recommended, but you can have an electrician make a 30A Y. Neither of your CURRENT RVs are going to be pulling more than 15A each at any one time. There are RVs out there with two AC units and a 30A plug.

All that said, the kosher way is the 50A Y. But that means you have to have a 50A service, which doesn't always exist. I'd personally have no problem doing he 30A Y in your setup. But I'm not an electrician nor a lawyer. YMMV
