21' drycamper

I would like to purchase a 21' trailer and modify it to be able to dry camp. LED interior lights, batteries, solar recharge, large water tanks. Is there anyone who has done this? Which campers of this size have the largest water tanks? I just need 1 bed as we are just 1 couple.

I have a 1971 21' Globetrotter that will be mostly used for the same purpose. It came stock with a 34 gal water tank (I think, but have not measured it) It is currently going through a complete overhaul and interior reconfiguration.

thanks silverleeper I will look at those links. I am looking for a used trailer under 5 grand.
I thought I read somewhere the early seventies campers had small black water tanks and no grey water tanks. retrofitting these might be a chore, but maybe not if you have it gutted.

For your size requirements, a 21ft Sovereign (early-mid 90s) would be a good bet. They have fairly large tanks and the stability/security of double axles. The problems is that they are fairly rare and priced accordingly.
