Lexan is considered safe for drinking water.
Check any plastic to make sure you can safely use it.

You really didn't tell us why/how your tank is gone/broke but.......

If you have a closet area you don't use much you could get a barrel that holds water and use that. Just an idea. Obviously money is an issue.

Many years ago, I made one for a Holiday Rambler TT out of a piece of 12" schedule 40 pipe and 2 end caps. material was thick enough to drill and tap for all the fittings. It was a system that pressurized the tank and it held up fine.
