If a Thetford connector won't work.
Before tearing everything apart and upgrading it. I would try a Fernco connector. It would require grinding off the lugs on the existing pipe and providing some sort of support (clamp) system for any ABS or PVC pipe/fittings down stream from the existing pipe.
Since the trailer does not have a blackwater tank. You will either have to be connected to a sewer or use some sort of exterior tank such as a tote.

Homemade cap

First I am retired sheet metal worker, so I had some thick copper sheet about 3/32" thick I cut the collar of the cap first formed it round to fit the needed diameter I then silver soldered the collar and a flat pc. together, next was to cut and grind off the edges making it round then came the brass lugs in the collar I used a couple of air line fittings leftovers, think they were 5/16" dia. Drilled and mounted in place then more silver solder, and then a male brass hose fitting for the hose draining or capping it for travel.
And last I glued a rubber gasket inside of cap, bingo let it flow!
It ain't pretty but it works.

Hope this helps.

I am thinking this is a part I could make and sell? Let me know if you are intersted!

Hey Steve,
The Vintage Airstream website has directions for converting to the Valtera valve. Works well for me.
