Lookin' good!

What tires did you go with, get a good deal? We're looking at getting at least a new pair of steering tires on our '88 Winnie, good tread - but getting too old to trust very far from home...

Gas Tank

Where did you get the new gas tank? I need another one for my old 74 Vogue, I had one completely worked over but the other was in much to bad of a shape. I have been looking for another and would prefer not to have another steel one.
What was the cost and capacity?

I had mine custom built (82 gallons) and built out of aluminum over in Lake Havasu city, Cost was $600.00....

While not cheap changing out from a very heavy steel tank (80 gal) to the much lighter aluminum really helped by eliminating the weight hanging 6 feet over the rear axel....

fuel tank

this one is 22 gallon spectra brand came from familycarpart.com i believe .it is for my gen set and emergency fuel if we run the main out i had to install a bulkhead fitting and form a line since the original was made into the pump/gauge set up
the price was $94 plus shipping of $27 but ck around on the net. there is a huge difference in pricing from one site to the next
