    Moeller bought tempo years ago. Is there anyone else left, or does Moeller have a monopoly?

    They have a great range tanks, and none of them fit. Odd sized shapes under my cabin soles.

    Oh dear.
    If you cannot find anybody else, Tek Tanks will custom build to any shape that you want.
    Although there must be somebody in North America who does the same?

    I can certainly find a welder to do it in aluminum.

    I bought Moeller, but I think Dometic bought them. A little hint. I found two tanks online at 1900$, seemed high found same two for $900. Thought, interesting markup drama. Looked on amazon and paid 275 or so each free ship

    How big are we talking? The options for a 20 gallon tank are very different than for a 200 gallon tank.

    I'd like a pair around 75-100 gallons each.

    Its the maximum dimension issue. Under the sole there's a bulkhead or heavy frame every 4 feet or so. So tanks longer than 48 inches won't fit.
    My ideal tanks are 4' high, 3' wide, and 1' deep.
