Should I hang a water tank from the frame rails?

I've been looking at gray water tanks, and found the following tank, which would actually fit quite nicely between the frame rails on our bus. Are these tanks made to be slung from the lips on the end, or do they need to be supported from the bottom?

Thanks,
Chris

I welded together hanging platforms for my tanks. They specifically say they are not meant to hang from straps and require bottom support. I got mine from a vendor on ebay.

Wouldn't be to difficult to bolt a couple of pieces of unistrut across the frames to hold it up
