Fresh water tank, 25G

Clean un-used polyethylene fresh water tank. 25 gallon R-RVB546 with 3 1/2" fittings. This fits under the floor and behind the driver of the 2017 long wheelbase medium length cargo van. I added about 1/2" of insulation to my install and the bottom is close to flush with the lowest body sheet metal. You do need to slightly shift the gas line and slightly trim a gas tank strap. This tank was about $525 with shipping. There was a shipping screw up and I ended up with two. $100 and it is yours in the Seattle area. I have a road trip in Jan. and can bring it down as far as San Jose.

I have a son in Seattle maybe willing to store it for me if you can deliver to him on Mercer Isle and if it will fit under my 2017 extended length. Could you PM me the dimensions and I will measure tomorrow..... or when you send dimensions. Thanks,
Ron also

I'm very curious about the dimensions myself. The 25g tank I bought is 48'x'16'x8'.

A tank that size should hold close to 27 gallon. I'd take it if I was anywhere close to Seattle.

I never measured it. The walls are 1/4" thick.

Just back from an extended road trip to florida. A "serious" buyer wasn't, so this is back on the market.
It's in Seattle, shipping is expensive but I do get around the west coast so I may be able to get it to you.
As per the first post, it's unused and perfect. Once it warms up I'll get a couple of pics of my install. It takes care of our water needs for over 5 days, survives multiple days below freezing and only the lowest point (the support rail) is only an inch below the body sheet metal. 425 736 6581

Welcome back Ron – you missed all the weather excitement! Or perhaps missed is the wrong term to use…

We just got back from Costa Rica, time to do some more crawling around in the rain on my driveway. At least the snow has stopped.

By the way, I had good luck selling my 10 gallon gray water tank on craigslist here.

Thanx Dave.
Yup, missed it. Did see some some pictures. That was the best way to experience it.

Craigslist is next.

Hi Ron, you had said you would send some pics of your install, when you didn't I assumed you had sold the tank. It would still fit my needs and I still have a son in Seattle if you have time and inclination to send the fotos. The gas tank brackets look like a challenge to me so pics would help. Regards, Ron
