If you need a custom tank made, I suggest these guys George's Custom Plastics Inc.

They did a great job making the extra waste tank I added to my trailer. Their tank walls are pretty thick so you will lose a little capacity but you can design a tank that will fit well in the space available to compensate for that.

For extra fresh water I have a 6 gallon military water can that I take along if I think it will be necessary and I always keep a 3 gallon collapsable water jug in the trailer just in case we need it.

When we will need more capacity, I take one of those 7-gallon cube-shaped containers (from WM). I replaced the faucet on the container with a 3/4-in to male hose adapter. To transfer the water, I set the container on the tailgate or on a table, connect the fresh water hose and gravity fills the internal fresh tank.
