Black water tank on a 67 AS 30'

My wife, Kathy, begged for years for me to get her an older Air Stream. So I got her a 1967 Sovereign 90+% original except for the frig and blackwater tank. What I need to know is if there is anyone that has an updated tank that will fit where the old one was and that is a big space under the rear bath. Vintage trailer supply will convert a new model tank for me but one ready to go would be better; I think. #2. Does anyone have a 67 set up all ready that can help with info if I do have to put the new model tank in? I can do most anything with a travel trailer when it comes to restoration, but even with the 67 owners book in hand not being able to see the way the tank looks when connected up properly, I will just be quessing pluss the old owner at some point in time but household pipes to connect to a septic tank (in ground) not AS. Before I replace this plumming mess, I need to know for sure how to set up the black water tank. Sorry for so much on my first post!

Ray Bozeman, Kathys keep you happy husband. (what , no spell check!)

Did you find an answer to your question regarding the black water tank? I am trying to repair the floor in the bath of my 67 Sovereign and discovered that my black water tank is cracked.

Right now I am removing the bathroom lower side panels to have access to the floor area I need to repair. My plumbing is a bit of a mess, but most pipes appear to be in their original position. Once I get the bathtub and side panels removed I could send you a picture of my setup.

When I did my 68 Tradewind ,about 5 years go, Inland RV was the only vendor with an OEM black tank. It is solid fiberglass instead of plastic like the original. You have to glass the fittings to the top of the tank but it is not a hard job. It was not cheap, but the quality was excellent and it saved me a lot of time not having to try to make something work.
