New Water Tank Recommendations?

Hi All,
I need a new water tank. The one I have leaks; I tried repairing it, but it still leaks. So has anyone purchased a new tank, and/ or can they recommend a sturdy tank? The one I currently have is 12 gallons, 15 x 24 x 8 approximately.
Thanks for your help!

I don't know what size you can fit, but barker makes. 12 gallon 20x12x12, and a 15 gallon 24x12x12. I usually use rvdirect.com, or dyersrv.com

My suggestion for fresh water tank is....to have drain pipe going through F.G camper floor for easy to clean up. That's what I did for my Trillium, both fridge drain hose and fresh water tank's...The photo is...upside down..

Thanks to you both for your replies. My current size tank is 24 x 15 x 8.
I do route the drain through the floor; trouble I had was that the leaky tank didn't care about that. But I had shower pan liner material under the tank, so damage was minimal.
I saw the tanks on Dyer's website; looked like a good place, but I appreciate you thumbs up on them.

Thnanks,
Fran

Are you restricted to that size? I saw one place online with lots of sizes, I'll see if I can find it again.

Thanks, Jared. I ended up ordering a tank on Amazon. I can fit in a 24 x 12 x 12
tank, and get a larger capacity, 15 gallons instead of 12. It's from Barker Manufacturing, and comes with all kinds of fittings and hoses, so I'll be installing all new parts. No more leaks!

Hooked up the Shurflo pump and tested it and it works well. Only have it going to the kitchen faucet, but it's a simple trailer. It would be nice to have a water heater, but I think that project is in the future. I'd like to finish this trailer renovation I started in 2009, and use the darn thing this year!

Got some cabinet doors to make, but that's it. Then it's ready to roll.

I like working on the trailer, though, Lots of fun and bruised fingers!

Fran
