Under the bed in the rear, that way I don't put extra stress on the pump, have to cut even more holes in the floor, it will be out of the light and temp swings.

All of my plumbing is under the skirt. 2 x 30 gallon poly tanks being mounted between the skirt and frame just behind the factory battery compartment. The grey and black water are going into a single tank that I am fabricating out of fiberglass.

Man do I need to seriously update my thread...

Mine is sitting indoors on top of the driver side rear wheel well. No room below but at least it will be temperature stable.

I was thinking in the back under the bed would be ideal because under a bed is a lot of space. My question with that is are there any issues with the tank being further from the sink shower and toilet? Also, any good advice on shopping for tanks?

Underbed is a very common placement. Good idea to make the surrounding containment watertight...just in case. And Ebay is about as good a place as any to shop. At least I've had good luck there.

Under MY bed are the aft heater and a wheel arch. Oh, and my footlocker, too.

That's where I got mine from. 33gal, 4 fittings, fits great right where I wanted it ;)

Found one on eBay but am unsure. It's 100 gal and measures 81.25 in which is almost perfect but perhaps a tad big. In the picture on my first post in this thread you can see the back of the bus. The width of the inside is 84.25" from the stud to the coolant lines. I feel that is sufficient except for the fittings on the tank are not included in the measurement. I figure I could raise the tank up so the fittings are all above my coolant lines. The snug fit is rather appealing...
