Nice. I'm not installing a grey tank. I'd like too but can't really afford it right now and don't know where to put it without having to completely rebuild the rear frame. Were you able to keep the pocket door?

I kept the pocket door on mine, really just depends on where you position the shower base. The space for the door also has the vent stack so it serves a dual purpose.

Really? That'd be great. I really like the fact of having a door.

is there a way to install a grey tank without having to rebuild the entire frame. I only have the floor torn out from the back of the wheel wells to the back of the trailer.

Installing a gray tank doesn't involved modifying the frame, but it does involve a whole lot of everything else. I would suggest you don't need a gray tank if you always park in a campground where sewer connections are available. You can't dump gray water on the ground while boondocking.

This is a classic "while your at it" dilemma.

If your subfloor is out and the belly pan removed, installing waste water tanks is easier. My waste water tank project cost in the $1500 range for two tanks 500, freight 100, grommets, tank hangers, valves, ABS pipe and fittings 200, and a big tank cover 400. I also opted for a new SeeLevel tank water level monitor 230. And a whole lot of my labor, which is free according to my wife.

There is always a way, just depends on how much money and time you want to invest. I thought about putting in a gray tank but when I pulled it all apart, I saw that the black tank was taking up most of the rearmost section of frame (on my '73 overlander). Given the time and cost issues, I decided not to even try and find a tank to install. I would have had to engineer the changes to the drainage and also install another valve to control dumping of that tank separately from the black. If you have most of the rear section of belly pan off, its probably not so bad in terms of access. Maybe someday I'll do it, but for now we have a blueboy and that hopefully will handle any time we dont have a hookup.

Our shower pan is also 24" square, but it appears the drain must be on the back side, toward the left. We have only found 24" pans with center drains or drains at the center of one side.
