replacement tank for 1965 Tradewind International?

Hi - our black water tank is at the end of its life and got some cracks in it this summer (courtesy of a very bumpy road in the Rockies). Turns out it can't be welded as the plastic has become too brittle and I haven't had any luck finding a replacement.



Would anybody have any suggestions? So far all I've heard is that we need to retrofit a different size, which seems... less than ideal.



I'd love some help. What have other owners done in that situation?



Thanks so much! J.

I know Inca Plastics also carries some "standard" sized/shaped Airstream tanks. But we got ours at All-Rite Tanks several years ago. They can do customs, which we needed - our 1956 never had tanks, so they had to be custom.

Hi, how did you do replacing the black tank on your 65'? We are planning to replace the black on our 67' tradewind.
