missing water tank

I just purchased a '70 29 foot airstream and it is missing the fresh water tank. It has no spout and its like it never had one. Has anyone found a way to use a blatter type tank or found a replacement source??
Thanks

You say in one place you have a 69 and in another you say a 70.

Those years used different water tanks.

Shipping an incorrect one, is expensive.

Are you sure the tank is missing? It is under the floor mid point in the trailer. It's held up by a 3/4 inch plywood peice under the trailer. That is covered by an aluminum skin to hide the hole thing. If you look under the kitchen area you should see the pipes and just the edge of the tank. The water pump is also located in this area.
It's possible that the plywood rotted out and the tank dropped out at one point. This should be easy to see. Get under the trailer and look around. If you can see the trailer floor then the tank is really missing. Some pics would help.

69 was under the front couch (30 gallon)
70 was under the mid floor as described in earlier posts (50 gallon)
