Skewer for Raleigh Ravenio

A friend of mine (who lives in another state) needs to buy a new rear skewer for her "Raleigh Ravenio" road bike. There's no bike shop in her rural town so she'll have to order one. I'm not familiar with the bike or older road bike tech -- what should I tell her to order? Thanks.

If it's an older bike it probably uses standard 100 fr/130r QR skewers. https://www.jensonusa.com/Shimano-Ul...-Quick-Release

Will she be using this bike on a trainer stand? If so then then the linked skewer is not the best choice as the end caps would then need to be round and steel. Either way I would advise her to avoid the open cam types if at all possible as their clamping force is less then the linked internal cam type. Andy.
