Goldstream Crown ST. Technical possibility to retrofit a grey water holding tank


Does anyone out there know if there is space to retrofit a grey water tank to a 2019 model Goldstream Crown ST?

Any other tips re pros and cons of this model caravan?

Cheers, Bob

Bob, There is space but it requires removal of existing plumbing. Why would you bother? You will only add another 60 - 80 kilo to the rear of your van which will increase the propensity to yaw (sway).

A portable grey water tank is accepted at all sites requiring grey water to be collected. The tank can be carried anywhere in van or tug to assist in weight distribution. If camped up you don't need to hitch up van and take it to dump point to empty grey water (which by now is toxic waste), you simply take portable tank to dump point along with toilet tank.

 Not at Bunbury WA.

Visitors must meet the definition of fully self-contained to utilise these areas. To be considered fully self-contained your vehicle must be fitted with on-board facilities such as toilets and sinks. These on-board facilities cannot be a separate item; they must be manufactured as part of the vehicle and plumbed in. If your vehicle does not meet these criteria, you will need to use established caravan parks.

This is not the only place like this.

 Hey Jacks .. did I miss something? Is there a local interpretation or more detailed statement?

When I read that article I didn't see anything preventing using tote tanks in conjunction with my van with fixed sink & toilet.  But maybe that's how I wanted to interpret it.

I think that I'd give it a go, or at least call the council centre to check.  Though sometimes it's better to ask forgiveness than get permission.

Hi Cupie. you are right it may be a matter of interpretation. But they are watching you with cameras there that are constantly changing their orientation every 7 or 8 seconds.

Elliston golf club free camp were adamant in person that any sort of bucket or tote will see you removed.

Thanks Jacks for the update on an interesting trend.

A misguided one in my opinion, but it's all academic as far as I am concerned.  We almost never free camp.  Our tote tank has been used once in about 5 years but I carry it just in case, as it is lightweight & takes up little room in the back of the Patrol.

BTW, I could strap my tank up under the rear of the van & then it might be self contained. LOL

I could understand that a bucket would not be acceptable in many places - But a tote tank with fitted connection to van, would be considered legally as self contained.
