Coach brands with big storage tanks?

Looking to buy a pusher in about a 2000 model, give or take a year or two. Trying to hold out for an Alpine, but starting to look at others. One of the many reasons I like the Alpines, are the large storage tank capacities. 100 gallon fresh, 100 gallon grey, and 78 gallon black. Tank sizes are rarely mentioned in used RV ads. Most of the ones I've looked up, seem to have grey tanks that are 60 gallon, and 40 for black. If that big. I'll be mostly boondocking, so large tanks are a high priority. Which brands of coaches have big ones around that age? Thanks.

100+ gallon fresh water / 60+ gallon gray / 60 black are larger waste water tanks are common on most of the upper end brand diesel pushers from that era (most upper end Safari and Beaver coaches, Foretravel coaches from the era often have larger waste tanks than fresh tanks, a quick look online at the 2002 Foretravel U320 shows 95 fresh, 103 gray, 51 black. Monaco products seem a bit more skimpy with more like 100/60/40, but there are plenty of others out there with larger tanks, Country coach models from that era tended to have 100 gallon fresh tanks and larger total waste water tanks, one brochure showed 100 fresh, and 134 combined waste

Back then, I believe Monaco/Holiday Rambler ran 100 gallon fresh and 60 gallon black and grey. I know the 60 gallon black in our Diplomat was overkill.

It's a little older than you're looking for but my 93 Beaver has a 150 gallon fresh water tank, 75 black and gray. Safari bought Beaver in 1994, I'm not sure if they kept those sizes.

60 gal black can go at least 10 days without dumping

60 gal grey can also go 10 days if careful on showering

If the fresh water tank holds 100 gallons then why make the combined capacity of black and gray exceed that by a large margin? Larger tanks take up space that can be used for other things.

I know when we boondocked in the past, it was easier to add water when boondocking, versus dumping tanks. Most dry camping areas at least have water nearby. So the extra tank space allows you to add another 20-30 gallons.

Because you don’t always put 50 gallons in each and, at least in the black tank, you’re adding something besides what came out of the fresh water tank.

I carry 100 gal fresh, 75 gal gray and 75 gal black. That along with the 150 gal fuel was one of the main reasons we purchased this coach.
