Waste water connection

I've recently bought a 1981 Excella II 31footer and need to connect the waste, grey water to a hose to drain away. I have a Valterra termination cap fitted to the outlet on the Airstream. The cap has a small inset screw cap to accommodate the hose, so I need a simple connector to join them. The only problem is that I'm in the U.K. and our plumbing threads are differwent to U.S ones. Perhaps any U.S. hardware store would have what I need - can anyone help please?
Regards - Geoff, backtrackrye

This female repair part just pushes in and then the hose clamp retains it.

This one is cheaper and won't last as long, but I like this type because it doesn't have that excess band of steel that sticks out from the tightened hose clamp, which can bite you as you attach the hose.

I just Googled "garden hose female repair," but the geographic filter in Google might not direct you to USA parts.
