Tank suggestions - 26' Overlander

Hello to the Airforums community.

We are about to install a new tank/plumbing system in our 1965 26' Overlander. We're in the process of a chassis-up modernization which includes moving the bathroom from the rear to the middle of the trailer. I wanted to test the waters and see what size of tanks and what info about weight distribution some of you more experienced folks recommended for that size of an Airstream.

As I'm sure it is common knowledge, the 65' didn't have a grey water tank to begin with, so it will be a fresh install.

We are putting the shower on the street side of the trailer and we're planning to put the grey water tank under the floor in the underbelly directly beneath the shower. The toilet and sink will be "across the hall" from the shower and we're planning to put the black water tank directly below that, also under the floor. The idea there being that the less plumbing you have to move black water, the better. To counter-balance the weight, the plan was to put the fresh water tank closer to the front. The tanks we were looking at were from Ronco Plastics. Any ideas on the size of the individual tanks or does anything stand out as weird as far as our plan goes?

Just purchased a '75 Overlander and have the same idea for the remodel. Luckily, mine has the grey tank. Watching for replies regarding advice from previous remodelers. Thanks.

Your post about relocating your tanks during a remodel was written 4 years ago...Just curious how it all went for you as I am going to do something similar soon.
