Replacing all Tanks. Sizes?

I am replacing all the tanks on my new (to me) 93 34'. Gutted the interior for a fresh redo for my photography year+ tour next year. Want to make sure everything works great and didn't have faith in the neglected 20 yr old system.

Any where to look up & order the right size tanks?
I've heard for ones that spray the interior of the black tanks when you empty them.

I'd really appreciate the pointers. need help with new tech for appliances, batt system, solar. etc.

Oh My..you have a lot to do before next year.
Seriously, we need more info to help you. Are you redoing the current layout or remodeling, same size tanks or bigger, same location or relocating? See the dilemna? And just because the holding tanks have been neglected doesnt mean they are necessarily unuseable. You wont really know until you remove and inspect. there are many sources for the replacements once you make some decisions.

im making some changes but nothing crazy. will leave bathroom and kitchen where they were. would you suggest bigger tanks? From what I've read tanks deteriorate about at the 20 year mark. I know people have older ones and I really don't care to debate the issue honestly. The black and gray tank was full and I know they have sat out for at least 2 years. I'd rather have a clean new slate, more efficient and reliable.

Go with a bigger gray tank. Every Airstreamer I know fills that up well before the black tank. (What does this thread have to do with propane?)

Unfortunately, those tanks are no longer available, as per Airstream.

All you can do is provide some measurements, better yet drawings and quite well later models tanks may work OK.

Airstream cannot advise what current tanks might take the place of the originals.

Also, different models of the same length, have different parts.

Make sure you let it be known that you have an "Excella Classic", rear bath.

If the tanks are not leaking they should be fine. The tanks are fine in my 81 but I do need to fix the valves. If you are paranoid you might remove the fresh water tank and give that a good cleaning. I think you have plenty to do without replacing the tanks. I would make sure the supports for the tanks are in good shape.

Thank you. It's an excella 1000, and the bathroom is on the side.
