Size and shape of the shell has changed from '61 to '09. I doubt they are compatible.
Holding tanks are easily available from or ppg. You can make the walls out of plywood and cover them with fiberglass or aluminum or....
Read through the major restorations forum and see what some others have done there if you have'nt already.
Good to have you back.

Although the modern parts may not fit, your plan to reconfigure the layout could work anyway. It just so happens that the layout you describe is my favorite, and it was used on many many vintage trailers through the years.

I agree, that floor plan works great. Like many of the vintage sob's, I would consider putting a bunk over both the bed and dinette for the babies when they get bigger. right now they can each sleep on a dinette seat. That is what my granddaughters do now. Will are thinking bunk/storage area for the future. As Wally said, No changes, only improvements. You have a lot of improvements to do. Have fun and go camping in your tin tent.
