'82 17' boler - grey water tank - is it structural

Hi, We're in the process of renoing our '82 17' boler. We have removed the bathroom and will be going with an outdoor shower instead. Therefore we've got rid of the toilet tank, but also would like to get rid of the grey water tank. Any comment if it's structural and part of the integrity of the trailer base? We cook outside and as I mentioned, don't want the bathroom, so thought if we could remove the tank, it would lighten the load on the trailer for pulling. Any comments would be appreciated. Thx in advance. Joy

The dimensions of the tank are 40.25" X 20.25" x 6.25".

No, the grey water tank is not structural. Take it out. I actually tried to fix all of the holes in my Boler 17 grey tank over the summer. I was laying on my back under the trailer doing it. Maybe next year I will try again, but remove the tank first and patch it on the bench.

To remove the tank, you need to unbolt and remove the 4 foot long angle iron holding it in place. Or just cut the tank into small pieces.

Fantastic. That's great news. Not sure we're going to get to it this fall before it gets cold out, but another item to add to the todo list. And BTW, the T Trims straightened out beautifully. Some are quite stained with adhesive, so I'm going to "steal" from the closet and use those in the open areas and I was able to get white T Trim from Trillium in Calgary and I'll replace the closet T-Trims with the White. Things are definitely shaping up.

Is the grey tank in ok condition? if you are getting rid of it we could use a replacement for ours as it has damage.
Could you please contact me if you do decide to get rid of the grey water tank;
Thankyou in advance
