Here's one more option that we use. Locate a plumbing (faucet) O-Ring that will fit snugly on the stopper. Slide it on the stopper from the bottom up to near the top, leaving it so it keeps the drain plug open as high as you want it.
This lets the water drain but stops your rings, etc. from passing thru.
Not my idea as it came from this forum a few years ago. It works!

Happy RVing,

I just leave mine out most of the time, and stick it in when I want the drain plugged up- which is just about never.

My stopper looks just like the one in the OP's picture and to keep mine open I just rotate the stopper until it sits on top of the standoffs inside the drain. I can't tell from the picture if these standoffs are there.

or, if you really want one with a stopper, you can buy something similar to this:
JR Chrome 1-1/2" Strainer with Pop Up Stopper - Strainers & Plugs - Sink & Drain - Plumbing
Just make sure you measure and buy one the proper size, this example is probably too large but I just wanted to show you your options.

Thanks to all who posted options.

Papa and I like the option that captures 'minute errant objects' that are significant to anyone (more than likely a grandkid with an earring, small whatever, etc) thus having a 'melt-down' because something fell down the hole and I DO NOT want to dig it out! There is no need to plug and fill that very small bowl (grandkids lol)!

We will definitely get a strainer thingy and ditch the OG plug that came in the tt
