1971 Airstream Overlander gray water tank

Does a 1971 Airstream Overlander have a grey water tank?

Nope. We have a cap with a garden hose connection to drain the grey when boondocking. We have been using a bucket when using public parks, but just ordered a blue boy since we are planning a 9 day trip to BC and using Provincial Parks.

If you have it capped off, there is enough room for a couple of quick hand washes, for anything more and it will backup--which you want to avoid because it can backfill into the black tank causing contamination of your grey water drainage lines and basins.

I do wish there was a grey tank. It is probably my only dislike of the systems on our 72 Overlander.

We get this same question on the forum several times a week. No Airstream built before 1973 has a tank for sink or shower water. It drains through a pipe and out onto the ground, unless you cap the pipe. Then it backs up in the shower.

Why not just install one?
