Where to put that freshwater tank?!?!

I am currently rebuilding my '66 Dodge Mitchell Motor-home ( 1966 Dodge D200 Mitchell Build thread )and want to accomplish a few things as far as the freshwater is concerned. The camper did not come with one, but I can tell where a smaller one used to be. It was located under the seat in the dinette area.

What I want to accomplish
  • I want to keep all the current storage space that is there now
  • I would like a (roughly) 30 gallon tank
  • I want to mount under the coach, but insulate it

What have others done? What did you insulate the tank with (I am thinking of foamboard and 1/4" wood rubber under coated) Not only to keep from freeze but also smoother airflow and protect from road debris.

I am all ears and pictures help. Thank you

I guess if you secure it good and seal and insulate good it should work just fine just make sure it has a strong box to hold it in and a way to drain it which has to be protected too. there are thick styrofoam sheets at the home center that should work good, there is spray foam too
