Some places are better than others

All you-all who are writing about putting in a gray-water tank:

I looked at a 68 Overlander this week at South Jersey RV, a place that does repair and restoration work on Airstreams. They put a gray-water tank underneath, inside a metal box-looking contraption, and the whole thing was behind the axles and about 8 inches off the ground!

My uneducated take was that a speed bump would catch this thing, and there are LOTS of speed bumps in campgrounds!

Thanks Penguin. Sometimes we forget where the hazards are.

If it's close to the axle that's not really as bad as it sounds. The problem is out towards the bumper.

To put it into perspective my last DD that I drove for 4 years sat no more the 6 inches off the ground at the front spoiler and rocker pannels and I never dragged it on a speed bump. Got the front lip on a few parking ties and curbs though.
