where is a good place to get a new water tank?

Hey.. I need to replace the old water tank on my '64 Globetrotter. I'd like a polystyrene one rather than ABS, and was going to go to Westmarine. They're pricy but I figured I could just pick one up in Santa Rosa and save the shipping.

thanks

Peter

Ebay has lots of sources for tanks in various sizes. Also might want to look at the parts section on the PPLmotorhomes.com site.

watertank

actually, the ppl site had higher prices, in an informal sampling. I'm hoping to find something that is about the same size as the original, 11w x 11h x ? for 28 gallons.

PPL Rv in Houston Tx, has a lot of "standard size" fresh tanks. Very reasonable prices. The one for my Trade Wind came today. Looks good and the price was right. It was 1/4 the price of a factory reproduction. PPL has been in business a long time, eBay sellers sometimes don't have a long track record.

thanks, I looked at their site again. I want to put the tank in the same place, and the dimensions are kind of tight. I found one from Trionic which will work and is reasonable. Shipping to CA is kind of a pain, but they're super nice on the phone.

This site has many tanks, prices seem to be "all over the place" - apparently depending on what source they are getting the specific tank from.

hey. The Area63 site is cool and looks like a nice resource. My prices for a custom tank were coming up about $300 bucks. I ended up ordering the Trionic for $129 plus about 30 bucks shipping. The woman who took my order was really nice and a great help... so we'll see how it ends up. It was the only place I could find the same sort of size, 11 x 11 x 50 or so, to fit under the banquette in the original location. I also wanted it over the axle.

I'm not sure where you can get a new water tank for your Globetrotter but Westmarine is pretty good.

The original fresh water tank is still available and it fits the 1964 to 1967 Airstream trailers.

It's a 30 gallon tank.
