1964 Tradewind freshwater tank

I recently purchased a 1964 Tradewind. It does not have a freshwater tank nor can I locate where one ever was. The previous owner gutted it and had big plans that are no longer. Can someone tell me where the original one was and where I should look to purchase one. Thanks

The 1964 Trade Wind, whether with twin beds or a double bed, had its 30 gallon polyethylene fresh water tank underneath the street side bed.

You can find tanks here:

And then you can put it anywhere you want. I like underneath between the axels. Out of the way and no extra weight to one side.

Mine was right up front under the couch. Lot of weight on the tongue when full for traveling. especially when I bumped it up to a 40 gallon. Now I'm also putting a 26 gallon underneath, and will travel with water in that one, and fill the 40 when I get where i'm going. Thats if they don't have water hook up.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Ours is also under the roadside twin. We're partway through an extensive rehab on a 64 as well and have opted to move the water pump, inverter and batteries to under the beds to better distribute load. Batteries are going under curbside bed (rather than in the back under the toilet). We've also installed a small gray tank (11 gals). That 11 Gals isn't much but fits nicely and will hold us for several days of careful use.

Pics would be nice....
