Gray tank?

Does the 1958 Traveler have a gray tank under the floor?

My guess is that it does not. I can't really tell from the one exit pipe under the belly pan, which is under the toilet area. I suspect that if it did have a gray tank there would be two gate valves. There is only one PVC elbow from the bottom of the belly pan, with no gate valve (most likely broken off. Unless the original toilet had a dump valve inside for an internal black tank.

If there is no gray tank, then I will have to add one for an upgrade.

Airstream gray water tanks did not start until the 1974 models.

Your grey water pipe joins the black pipe after the gate valve, it does not go into the black tank, so alot of us use a portable tote to catch the grey water when there are no hookups.

Thank you for your replies. It was a guess on my part, and appreciate the info from the experts. I do have a portable grey tank, but really dislike having to carry it along. It may be the easier option rather than stuffing one between the belly pan. Still evaluating if I go that far with a renovation. If the belly pan comes off, I am going to consider it.

I was all set to make my first run to Inland RV to see Andy, and after the morning working on the Airstream, I found out that it was closed on Saturday. See ya during the weekday M-F!
