It's a 59l, 865 x 490 x 190mm.
$69.95 .. save $10

No problem, i would have liked a bigger water tank, but i want to get a undertray drawer, so i have to keep that area clear for that.

Steve,,,,if you want an ''80'' ltr one,,,PM Me......I have about 3.or..4 of them left over from doing the Bus....I was trying to get about 800ltrs onboard but ran out of room after going 1 for 1 with the grey tank.....
You can have one if you want as they are just stored in the shed

cheers

800 litres? !! Bus? !! Very generous offer there Rosco, i don't think i'll be able to fit it in though.

Do you happen to know what the measurements are?

I'm looking at using one to replace the 60ltr one that came with the trailer....will only add on another 20kg in weight.....

800 is nothing in a bus ....as a rule we average (well,,,Avis does) approx 200ltrs a day, showers x 2,toilet,washing
Dishes etc......

:cheers

Well Avis will have to start and learn to be heaps more frugal with water if you are going to be traveling.....

Gypsy...When you hit the road for extended periods like we did you will find it can be days inbetween getting water....she does know how to save,,,,when she has to.....

My point exactly Rosco and glad to hear that.

I personally think there is going to come a time when travelers will have to pay to fill up with water as we now do with fuel.

We never had that in NZ...But we have run into a few stops that have asked for a couple of $$$$ which we have no problem with....more so in W.A. ......And I think out near kingaroy the guy asked for $2- one time :cheers

Coober Pedy is another place too where you have to buy the water.

Had a lady in Tibooburra give me a tank full of her rain water once.....very generous gesture on her part and she would not take any money for it at all.
