Not sure how handy you are but Lowes sells an RV outlet box you can wire up to your panel and get you the full 30A. I just installed one last weekend, cost me ~$250 including a 30A breaker. The wire was the expensive part (125 feet of 6/3 is $175!).
I was thinking you got ripped off big time! Until I read you had 125 ft wire run. That'll do it!!
I had a 50A installed by an electrician at my house for $150. The main panel is right on the side of my garage way up front, so no wire run required. He ran a small conduit out of my main panel into a new 50A box, wired it up, and off we went (I verified with a VOM before I plugged in). Super easy, and one of my favorite things. Now I can run everything "wide open" in my driveway.
OP, I agree with the others here. Get yourself a good adapter and a good extension cord (if needed) and plug into a 15/20A if you're just running basic stuff (no microwave, and no AC, but should be enough to charge your battery and run some lights). Watch the cord and plugs though, if they heat up, changes are in order.
