Check Aircraft Spruce for some genuine RivNuts. They have a rib built into the outer diameter that grips the aluminum in the hole and prevents the threaded nut from spinning. They're also unlikely to cause galvanic corrosion.

They do require a special tool to install.

I've used them on aircraft and Airstream, and they work great.

Here's the stuff I bought at West Marine that prevents corrosion when using fasteners other than aluminum on an AS. I do not think that it's in the catalog. However, there's a website and phone number on the packaging.
