I have had several custom made stainless tanks over the years and everything came out perfect. Draw your design or take your old tank to your local steel fabricator. Do you want to increase the size of your tank or can you? Ask your local fire department where they take their stuff for repair or have custom parts made. You most likely will want a 916 stainless round tank with a concave bottom and top, if you want lot’s of pressure. The fabricating shop will most likely have a form for making the ends and it only takes a few minutes to make em. Have brackets welded to the tank to mount your pump vibration isolators. Have the holes cut and your stainless fittings of your choice welded to the tank and the mounting brackets. It will be the last water tank you will ever need for your Airstream. The six tanks I had built are still going strong after ten years in commercial service. Over time it will pay for itself. theGood luck.
