Ok, I am more confused now...

So I have the stock 120V EVSE, and a Siemens Versicharge with a 10-50P plugged into a 10-50R in my garage.

When I travel, I could bring the Siemens unit along, and would need a 10-50R to 14-50P adapter for most camp\RV sites? So that would ensure a 30A charge (Siemens limit). So, something like https://www.amazon.com/AC-WORKS-WD14501050-Adapter-Generator/dp/B0778YDV7B/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_60_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=700W4XVBAZ9G73SZWVF8?

With the stock EVSE, would I be able to use 14-50R at campsites? And, what would the resulting Amps be? Something like: https://www.amazon.com/3-Prong-Receptacle-Adapter-220-250V-110-125V/dp/B07JDN5DXG/ref=pd_day0_hl_60_10?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07JDN5DXG&pd_rd_r=d2db4f69-9377-11e9-ba7f-ff3c97cd9fc8&pd_rd_w=vCjPa&pd_rd_wg=l9IpV&pf_rd_p=ad07871c-e646-4161-82c7-5ed0d4c85b07&pf_rd_r=700W4XVBAZ9G73SZWVF8&psc=1&refRID=700W4XVBAZ9G73SZWVF8

You'll only ever get 12A through the stock EVSE. The trick here is the non-certified 240V as opposed to the certified 120V. That doubles your throughput from about 1400W to about 2800W both @ 12A.

Something I've read about RV sites are that some of those plugs may be 30A but they're 120V. So there are several factors to take into consideration. You could stock up on all the different variations of adapters if you wanted to cover every possible connection. Including the Tesla adapter.
