Relocating Fresh tank - 68 Overlander

I'm replumbing my trailer. New tanks, pump, etc. The orignial tank located under the front window, the plumbing and pump was missing when I got it, so with a gutted trailer and new plywood decking throughout I intend to position a tank below the floor and within the frame. My question is about the pump. Don't have one yet but in planning the tank location and its connections, I plan on the low point of the tank as a location to draw water up into the pump. Any problem with the pump being capable of drawing water uphill?? as long as its vented.

That's how all the newer Airstream trailers are configured. The tank sits down in the belly pan, and the pump sits on the floor above.

Have you moved your tank yet? I was curious to see photos once you have mounted the tank under belly.

Yes, I added two 25 gal poly water tanks and one 42 gal abs grey tank within the frame. I had to relocate some of the cross members and added support angles. My trailer frame had duct work under the floor which had to go. Here's a couple of pics.
