'69 Globetrotter - how many tanks do you have?

Hi,

I have a 69 GT that had her pipes and tanks removed before I bought her.

My dilema: I don't have the Owner's Manual with schematics. A kind person sent me a copy from their old manual of the drainage system. However, this schematic shows ONE holding tank (plus fresh water tank). Mine came with TWO (used and identical) holding tanks that fit where the ONE is in the schematic.

I'm not sure if I have all the pipes, so do I put it together with ONE holding tank or TWO?

Any current or former 69 GT 21' owners: How many holding tanks do you have?

Thanks for any help!
Colleen

Airstream did not start putting in 2 tanks (Black and Grey) untill the mid 70's. You trailer came with one tank, but most likely was modified by a PO. The original layout would have the toilet empty into the black tanks and everything else (grey water) run out of the trailer on to the ground. Most places do not allow you to dump grey water on the ground and this may have been why the trailer was modified. I would stay with the two tank setup. You should also have two dump valves. This would be a much perfered arangement.

I have a tank out of my 68 safari that you can use if you want another tank for the trailer.

Hi GypsyMoth;

Did you figure out your tanks yet??

If you do not have any tanks then you have a clean canvas. However be sure that your tanks don't sit too low in the belly for ground clearance - and remember the shower drain will need to drain down into the wash water tank.

Our 69 did only have a blank tank under the toile (stepped portion of the wet bath).

If you are looking for tanks - try rvsurplus they have really reasonable new tanks made to order as well as many sizes of stock tanks, shower pans and bathtubs (although not with the curve).

Are you changing the original layout???

I'm not sure what is best - to do with the tanks. All of my plumbing has been removed. I bought her in pieces.

I would like her to be the original layout inside. But that needs to be put back together correctly too. I have been looking at photos of other GT's to see what she should look like. Your Moonbeam is the layout mine should have. She looks great!
