Adapter - 13-pin EU to Flat-4 USA

I am looking for a adaptor. I found this one. If you have one or would suggest a better one let me know. I need one for my 110.
This one is listed for $62.

The stock/standard adaptor is only a plug adaptor. It works in conjunction with a box with some electronic inside the truck. $62 seems on the high side in my opinion (about 10-12 euros for the male plug and 5-10 dollars for a 4-flat-plug with a piece of wire), but I'm sure OEM prices are high to begin with. If it comes with the box that goes inside the cab (and is plug&play with the LR harness), then that's a good price. If you have to get a box and splice wires, then go to Walmart and get a "universal" euro-us converter instead (if you are a little handy) and forget the Euro side of the house.
As a side note to all, the 7-prong Euro plug is soon going to be hard to find. Europe changed to a 11- (12-???) prong plug in the past few years, so stock up.
I have an ex MoD and an ex wife. The two no longer conflict with each other.
it is not hoarding it is selective collecting

I made my own, coated the inside of the socket with Vaseline with a q-tip, made a harness with bullet connectors going to a 4-wire flat, plugged them into the proper places, then filled it in with plastic epoxy. It goes in and out easily, but snug enough that it won't come out on its own. I had everything on hand, cost me $0.00. That was on my 110 with the factory plug. My current 90 had no trailer wiring, so the Walmart converter worked for it. 10 minute job.

I can send you over a euro 13 pin plug if it helps?

Indeed, we're slowly changing over from the old 7 pin to the newer 13 pin plugs, although it's not a "law" that these are changed. I think the new plugs have extra pins for reverse sensors, power etc.

They're also better quality than the crappy old 7 pin ones too.
