The fresh water tank should be located under the front Groucho. The black water tank is located under the toilet. A 1963 Airstream did not have a grey water tank.

can someone tell me where the grey water tank is located on my 1971 Airstream Safari trailer? Also where is the drain plug to drain it? How can I divert the grey water from my sink straight to the outside, bypassing going to the septic tank?

I think the '71 may not have a gray water tank.

my '72 Sovereign doesn't have a grey water tank i hadn't realized this until after buying it. Back in those days it was "cool" to dump shower water into the campground when boon docking.
you could divert grey into your black by leaving the valve open (this valve would be used to empty the poop tank.) water will simply back flow into that black tank. not advised if you're using the black water tank for it designated purpose though.
exit drain hole on my '72 is at the very rear by the bumper.
i'm considering installing a composting toilet and then using the black tank for grey water. until i rip under belly apart and install a gray tank, what are my options? just poop in the campsite toilets ? but if true boon docking with no toilets would be nice to use the AS toilet.
