Hope you don't mind me jumping in uninvited. You mentioned finding a water tank, try these websites: http://www.watertanks.com/category/16/

Hope this is useful.

So, what did you wind up using to replace the insulation in your walls?

Good Choice Foam board is ideal, but only works in flat walls, not contoured. Also, the bat insulation costs alot less than the foam.

True, I was laying in a bunch of it as I helped my father screw down the new plywood floor in his 2003 Thor Tahoe Toyhauler, the entire front floor had rotted out from it filling with rain water that was leaking around the unused generator compartment (Not sealed). The vinyl undercovering had filled like a bladder up to the bottom of the OSB that made up the floor and sat for months. Had to cut out all of the wood and redo.

Thor did a piss-poor job assembling this trailer. No sealant around the waterheater, little to no sealant around most of the compartment doors. Just a total mess....
