No, the fresh water tank is larger...probably in the 20-30 gallon range in a early sixties trailer. The black tank is only going to be about 10 gallons. They figure, rightly so, that more fresh water is used as gray than black...in the sixties, it was okay to dump your gray on the ground and there is a bypass to do so.
Several years ago, we replaced the valves & repaired the tank on our (then) '64 GlobeTrotter. Here is a link to some pictures of what everything looked like under the belly pan:
Maxwell gets some TLC!
Hope this helps ~
Being yours is a different year & model, the tank will be slightly different, but it still won't be 20-30 gallons...
