There are upgraded replacement HD drains available on EBay custom made for Airstreams.

The pet knock goes into a reducer bushing that goes into the flange. You could just put a plastic poly plug into the flange directly as well. Remove plug to drain. Plastic plug to prevent corrosion seizing a metal one in place. Plastic plug would be pretty flush so not likely to break.
