Welcome to FGRV Tom. You didn't say which model/size you ordered and a 16'er may be different as it's a lighter trailer but you won't be disappointed by getting the larger tank for a couple reasons....at least to my experience with my SD 17. The little storage loss you'll have is almost moot. Although thinking about it now, when I pulled the bench out to add a deck plate to the top of the tank for easy clean out, I could have moved the tank an inch or so to the rear for a bit more access room through the hatch door....I'll put that on my maybe list
. Second, being the 17's are tongue heavy I run with a full water tank, unlike a lot of folks here, to lighten the TW a bit which has been between 365-375 at the trip start. I adjust the TW with interior gear loading as the water level changes rear to front as the holding tanks are taking the extra weight
. Anyway, having the on board capacity is great, how much you fill it depends on your camping interests, hookups or like the boondocking
