You can get a correct replacement fresh water tank form Vintage Trailer Supply. Not cheap, but it fits in the bay just ahead of the axles where it's supposed to. Black and gray tanks ... That depends a lot on your plumbing arrangement. VTS will custom spin weld fittings into tanks that will fit inside your frame. These tanks need to be fully supported from below, not just strapped in. I've also heard people mention Inca Plastics, which makes an entirely different type of tank. First thing is to decide where you want everything to go, then figure out where you can put the tanks to make it work.

Another source is Inland RV in CA..

By the way I do not think VTS makes the tanks. This does not mean they are not a good source. I recently got a tank through VTS made by Inca Plastics.
