Tank Capacity 65 Ambassador

Does anyone know the fresh water and black tank capacities for a 65 Ambassador?

The fresh water tank holds 30 gallons.

The water heater tank holds another 10 gallons.

The best way to check the black tank capacity, is to dump measured amounts of water into it, thru the toilet.

My stock '67 will hold 30 gallons of freshwater, and 17 gallons of black.

There are Airstream dealers who sell new, stock black tanks for '65 Airstreams. Maybe one of them will see this thread, and post what an original Ambassador's black tank was designed to hold. Chances are you have your Airstream's original tank.

Airstream has not had black water tanks availble for many years for 1968 and older models.

In fact, at this point, they do not have but a few tanks available for the 70's.

After market black and some gray tanks are avialable, most made with fiberglass and some with plastic.

bwaysteve,

Apparently you will need to measure your black tank's content unless another '65 owner sees this thread.

Good luck,
Tom
