Question Waste Water Tanks

If an owner says their '71 27 ft has a grey water as well as a black water tank, and AS didn't come so equiped (according to what I have learned about older AS prior to 1972-3, then has a gw tank been added in some way?

A 27 foot would be an Overlander. The bath is in the rear. Our 74 Overlander had a HUGE 10 gallon grey tank. If someone had tank work done then adding one at that time would have been possible. You may not have a gauge to monitor it since it was not standard equipment. I would ask what size the tanks, both black and grey are. You may need to ask a member what size black they have in the same model/year coach to see if the total gallons that can be held has increased. The biggest issue is weight. The frame in 71 was not sized for a ton of additional weight back there. If they added the grey without decreasing the black you could have a problem. Of course if you can ALLWAYS tow it with the grey tank empty the weight is not an issue.

Thanks for the quick reply. Something to keep in mind when considering an older one.
