2001 Bambi Black Water Tank

Does anyone know how large a black water tank I can fit into a 19' foot Bambi. It currently has an 8 gal. which is not sufficient.

many thanks,
george

Starting in model year 2003, the tank was upgraded to an 18 gallon tank. I would think the housing specs would be the same. The black tank I believe sits for the most part under the raised platform the head sits on.

So, I'm thinking that yes, you might be able to fit the factory 18 gallon tank in the space the 8 gallon resides, but I would contact the factory just to make sure. They can provide part numbers, etc as well.

George,
I had my 2001 19ft Bambi at JC for work in 2002, during which they changed out my 8gal blackwater tank with an 18gal. At that time, it was the first upgrade they had ever done. I have some pictures of my Bambi, which I presently have the belly skin off, showing this blackwater tank installation. I am happy I had it done.

May I ask how much the 18 gallon cost to install and the parts, etc.

Thanks for responding,
George

The installation of my 18 gal blackwater tank was performed while the factory, under their warranty, was replacing the four lower quarterpanels due to corrosion and had some of the working area exposed. I don't have the receipt but recall it was more than $500, which I was told was discounted due to the experimental nature of the work at that time and the hassle factor.

At the time, I did not request installation of the black-tank flush connection. I understand from several other posts that this is a nice feature, but early installations (I don't know if these were retrofit or new installations of the 18gal tank with flush) apparently had occasional problems with leaking in the freshwater flush line.

If you decide to look into that feature, search this forum, including such threads as:
