Some of the class C units used the stock tanks, some used custom tanks. My class A used a custom tank. My friends 1988 Ford Class C used the dual tank setup out of a pickup. If yours uses a factory stock tank it may be cheaper to get a replacement from a junkyard. If yours is a custom then it's a whole different situation.
A lot of the custom tanks in RVs were made as cheap as possible while still meeting the safety specs. Some don't even have a drain plug. If you end up having a new tank made this is a good time to make any changes - like thicker metal or adding a drain plug.
If you are local to southern California there is a company that has made several custom tanks for a friends construction company - secondary tanks for trucks, graders and bulldozers or replacement tanks for on-site generators (the plastic tanks they come with just don't hold up). The company is Aero Tanks, located at 455 South G Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410, (909) 388-0002. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
