Gray Water Question
We have a grey water question. We recently bought a 1970 23' Safari with the rear bedroom on the street side and a shower on the driver side. We want to install a gray water tank, What size or how many gallon tank should we install and are most fitting under the belly?

If the shower is currently TRAPPED above the floor level you just have to get under there and measure what will fit. The sink should be trapped just under the bowl and no problem.

There are a number of companies on line that make tanks and have stock sizes. Many will install the connection for you if given the measurements.

Keep in mind you will have to figure a way to get a vent up to the roof. If the area is small I have used 2 tanks. Cross connecting them at the bottom is not the problem you will have to make a connection across the top to vent the second tank to the main tank. May be a problem depending on the cross bracing of the trailer frame.

You can put anything from a 15 gallon to a 35 gallon + depending if you want it to hang bellow the belly pan and where you are able to put it.

First I would try to figure out where it is going to go under the trailer. This may mean dropping the belly skin. You can look at tanks here, this is where I got mine.
