upgrading to a grey tank in a '73

Greetings everyone
after using our 1973 Argosy 24 now for a few times i am tempted to install a grey water tank.

Has anyone attempted to do this ?

my first idea is to install one in between the wheel mounts, so that the trailer is not out of balance if i would have to travel with a full tank.

any thoughts are greatly appreciated



Michael

No takers on the question I see.

It is a difficult proposal.

You may want to consider one of the portable
external shuttle tank if you are in a location that
doesn't have a sewer hook-up.

We installed a gray tank in our 63, but I assume you could do something similar in yours. Here is a link to our blog describing the process. Hope it helps!

i have a 73 and love not having a grey. We use the portable tank and find we can stay longer without have to go and dump after only a few days. Good Luck

While I'm sure you could find a way to do it, I'm not sure it would be worth the effort. The blue boy is probalbly a better choice. Easy to use and portable. Trailers had grey water tanks installed after regulations changed and the were required in new trailers. If you camp at a full hook-up site, you don't need a grey water tank. If you're boondocking, you can just run a hose and let the grey water go. Again, you don't need the grey water tank. If you're at a regular camp site with no full hook ups, you can pull out the portable tank. I never saw a need to install a grey water tank in my old 72 AS. I find the grey water tank in the new trailer to be more of a PIA than a convenience.
