Black and Gray water tanks

I need other ideas/solutions for adding these two tanks onto 65 Caravel. The original black tank was too small. Any ideas and where to buy them from would be helpful.

I added a 25 gallon gray tank under the floor between the frame. Several people have done the same. Just search some and see what is posted.

Search for CJohnson's thread for a good idea on increasing the size of the black tank. Basically, he took the old tank dimensions and added more size right into the hanging closet. Here's the link to all his pics:

I did a stainless grey tank in mine. You'll need a good welder for frame mods and the tank. See post 52 of this thread:

Good luck -- it's a great trailer!

most RV dealers can get just about any size you need. Thats where I got mine. and with what you pay for shipping it was a wash...

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
