Where to get new tanks?

Hi all,

I'm preparing to do the mondo refurb. Part of this is I want all new tanks. I'm going to a deeper frame and so will want larger tanks. Where is the best supplier for these? What is the preferred material? Excuse my lack of knowledge here, but I've seen both aluminum and plastic tanks. I've also seen guys make them out of fiberglass. What do you all recommend and where to get them?

Thanks!

Inca Plastics still makes RV tanks. I am not sure what their URL is but I am sure you can "google" them.

Thanks guys. I see a pair of 40lb aluminum LP bottles in my future. I also want to get some bigger fresh, gray, and black tanks. I'll look into Inca.

Thanks!

Ordered a fresh water tank from them. They'll build to your specs.

Thanks Brad. I just checked their website. They look All-Rite

Seriously, I like the fact they'll build to whatever size I want. Once I get my frame built, I'll have them make some tanks to fit it exactly.

When I supplied them with a drawing via my RV repair facility, it came back exactly to size. I mean not close or within 1/8". It was dead on and on every measurement. If they're still operating as they did a few years ago, you'll need to order through an RV repair shop. Maybe now you can order off their website. Let us know how it goes.
