Adding a gray tank to a 65 Safari

I finially got the floor up and belly pan off. Now it is time for the gray water tank. Any suggestions on a tank? I have looked at the one at Vintage Trailer. However, as you can see my furnace duct system is in the way. I plan on using the same furnace as it is in excellent condition.
Any help and pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Try ronco-plastics.com or rvsurplus.net .Ronco has a great selection and the people were great to do business with.The product is top notch and They gave me a great deal on 2 tanks.

Viking has a '64 Safari like me, and has a suggestion for a grey tank covered in this post here.

What do you think of this? My plan is to have the gray tank drain to the rear of the AS, and the black tank drain to the front, with a side discharge to the street. Has anyone used this set-up?

Thanks for the feedback on where to get the tanks, I will be calling around to order this week.

Just installed back to front front to back,tested and works perfectly.I used matching Ronco R-17 tanks and ran the gray out reduced to 1 1/2 and streetside.Then used a street elbow andran to front.Back tank in usual place and gray in the first slot behind the last axle.I also bought a valve assembly 1 1/2 on one side and 3" on the other and it was adjustable to fit (Valterra)
I think I have pics up on the thread "Gutting th 65" Good Luck! Steve
