What you can ask for depends on what it is your looking for.  Most chassis components require using a motorhome listing (M300, M400, etc.).  Listed under 1 ton and larger heavy truck stuff.  Generic stuff (plugs, points, plug wires, etc.) you can use D100-D300 pickup truck.  As you have most likely discovered, the motorhome and heavy truck items are not in the computers.  It's back to the books for those listing.  Some here have repaired/resealed gas tanks using POR-15.
 For reference, Dodge built the main fuel tank.  Winnebago built/added the aux tank.  You will have to do a web search for custom tank building or go the junk yard route.  Most 70's era Class A RV's (Winny, Pace Arrow, Champion, etc.) were based on the Dodge chassis so used main tanks might be easier to locate.  AUX tanks were built by RV manufacture and were different between manufacturer.
