fresh water tank 66 Safari

Can anyone help me in determining the correct size water tank that SHOULD have been in my 66 SAfari? Mine has been modified and want to order a new one. I have the twin bed model and the tank fores across the front and should have been a teal colored plastic. Width, length and height is what I am after in addition to gallon cap.
Anyone have info on black tank and toilet replacement in this same year? Please e-mail me if you can provide any info!

Thanks in advance! John

Approx. 11 x 11 x 52 inches. The owner's manual says it is a 30 gallon capacity. There are a couple of built in "indentations" so the volume would differ from the dimensions I've given you.

You can search for toilet and black tank replacement info. I'm not that far in my process. Consider that our 66 are more like the 65s than the 67s. There was a design revision in 67.

Not knowing enough to be afraid... (I know more than I did, but I did it anyway!)

Eljay's right about the similiarities of 65s and 66s. And even 64's in terms of bath configurations. As for the tanks, there have been plenty of threads on replacements for the toilets that year, and black tanks can be ordered custom to fit.

Thanks for the water tank issue and dimensions. I was also sent a private e-mail that said their 66 had a 12x12x49 inch tank, guess that is about parallel with the 11x11x52.
Are there any origional tanks still in use? I think I can find an origional but not sure if I should use it or buy a repalcement....Thanks for any addl. help.... John
