On my '87 37RQ the propane tank is an 80 lb unit that is approx 13"X44". Part number is 074142-01-000. Looks like all the 87 Windcruisers used the same on except the 26ET which only had a 42 lb tank. Check at some of the MH salvage places, you should be able to find one.

When I checked on a new propane tank for my previous MH a new 20 gal frame mounted propane tank was in the $450-500 range. As indicated above propane tanks are filled to 80% to allow for expansion, so the 20 gal one would be filled to 16 gal. Many older MHs had 20 gal tanks but I put in a 25 gal if I had the room to have the extra propane capacity, especially if you have a propane generator.
