Water tank 50 gallons.

The other tanks capacity depend on rear or center bath.

If it's a rear bath, the black tank is about 23 gallons and the gray tank is about 13 gallons.

I think you're looking at 30 gal of fresh water with a small black tank and a ridiculously small gray tank. My '75 Argosy has something like 15 gal black, 12 gal gray.

Looks like either 30 or 45 gallons for fresh water based on info found here, but it doesn't list the capacities of gray or black.

On the link above, scroll down to 1974 then click on "Standard Specifications" or "Price Schedule Deluxe & International"...one says 30 and the other 45...go figure! Best way to settle it for sure, is to fill the tanks while keeping track of how many 1-gallon jugs it take to fill them.

Shari.

I have the drawings with dimensions for many of the older tanks.

I just did the L x W x H divided by 231 and subtracted a little.

One gallon is 231 cubic inches.

I can tell you that my 1974 Sov's rear-bath grey tank is 10 gallons.
