Replacing black water tank on a 1969 Caravelle

Hi folks,

The black water tank on my 1969 Caravelle needs to be replaced. The old one is curved to fit the back corner of the trailer. The toilet and exhaust holes line up with matching holes in the one piece fiberglass bathroom enclosure and I imagine this will be challenging for someone to match.

Any suggestions on where I should start looking to have a new one made?

Thanks in advance for any help or ideas on this.

Call InlandRV. They have black tanks for most older Airstreams. They are high quality fiberglass. They are not cheap, but they fit the original location and for me time saved in trying to make something work was worth the money.

I ordered a new tank from Insland RV. I'm so glad Inland RV has tanks for this model. I was certainly dreading trying to have one made.

Thanks for the help.
