Angry Oh Sh*t! Replacing waste tank

We have a hole in the waste tank/black water tank on our 66 safari. Any Idea what a new one costs? What do you think a trailer place would charge me?

Check with Andy at Inland RV. They are not cheap, but mine was an exact repro of the factory tank and high quality fiberglass. I could have made a generic tank work, but the time saved was worth the money.

I replaced the one in our '66 Trade Wind 4 years ago. The old one split and was quite brittle so repair was not for it. I got my new tank from Inland. They were the only place that were making them then. May be still also. It was expensive but given trying to fit an after market one it was worth it.
