1965 Overlander - Where to get Black Water Tank?

Greetings,

I have a 1965 Overlander and the Blackwater tank needs to be replaced. I haven't seen this type of tank on VTS or Airstream Supply. I am looking for suggestions for alternate tank options and additional vendors to check for the right tank.

The shape of the tank is generally rectangular (23.25 x 49.5), with one long side having kind of a cut out shape or alcove that begins 18.5 from each short side, angling back from that long side to a segment 9 in length.

Having bought the trailer from previous owners who did alot of plumbing and wiring experiments which we are slowly repairing, I don't even know if this is the original tank. If not. what was the original tank and who carries it? or makes it?

Thanks so much!
Karen

I ordered an exact reproduction from inland rv for my 65 overlander. I would try Inca plastics, might be less expensive.... I paid about $650 w/ shipping!

Yay for Inland RV!

Thank you for the Inland RV suggestion! I now have an original tank on its way. Still expensive, but it was half the price of a custom one. I went with the original option because I prefer to keep what I can orginal. The retro-fit tank option from Airstream Supply (107011, Dimitri can install fittings, etc with measurements you provide) was the next option.
