Water Tank Sizing

I'm looking into converting my twin beds to a walk around queen. The only issue I see is moving the fresh water tank from one twin to under the bed and adding an outside filler port to the other side of the MH. Current water tank is around 70gal. Looking at the potential available space under a bed for a tank, I can source a 42-55gal tank that would likely fit.
Considering most of my camping will be with water/electric hookups, I'm not seeing a down side to a reduction in fresh water capacity. But, I'm a relative noob to the RVing world. Am I missing something?

A) It's your mh so do what you want B) If you are comfortable in doing the work, have at it. Agree no downside for you.

Good Luck with your project.

I think I'll have to build the base myself. I thought there would be about a 6" overhang of the mattress platform, but from pics I've seen today it looks like it's about 10". If I limit it to 6", I can source a 65gal tank. Possibly have enough room to build in a small aux heater using a heater core and fan assy, or use a readily available unit from a Chevy Astro Van.
