    We live in CA. and dry camp at the beach a lot. We also use this tank for washing the salt and flushing the engine on the boat . I have a 12 volt pump that we use. Also I have found that I place a mover's blanket under it in the bed of my truck. It also fits between the tailgate and the fifthwheel hitch so I can hall water for alonger distance even with the fifth wheel. We have had this bladder at lease three yearsplus with know problems.

    This item works great, it is heavy when filled, I have a Chevy Pickup with a fiberglass lid over the bed. I put the tank on the lid, filled it and hauled it to the camper with no trouble. The gravity fill worked great, tank was flat as a pancake when done and the camper tank was filled. Follow the instructions and you will be glad you brought this.

    I purchased this water bladder as a replenishment resource while dry camping in a travel trailer in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Colorado. I didn't take it out of the package until I was ready to fill it (my mistake). Only then did I learn that I should have 'flushed' the tank before using it. Oops. I filled it anyway and we just used the water for showering and such, so it wasn't really an issue. Filling and transferring the water was as easy as one could imagine. Don't try to move the 'tank' once it's filled, however. It does weigh around 385 pounds, after all. Also, I don't think I would recommend putting the tank on the roof of any vehicle, but I've not tried it. At this point I would recommend this product.

    Don't put it on your roof...

    This item is very useful for getting water to your rig instead of taking your rig to the water, BUT.... 1. DO NOT PUT THIS THING ON YOUR ROOF, AS PICTURED. Water is A pint a pound the world around, or 8 lbs to a gallon. Do the math, it's 360 lbs filled. Work out another way to transport it. Bed of your truck, etc. 2. In case it isn't clear, this thing is intended to gravity feed, which is why they show it on the roof. Any lower, and you might have a problem getting a siphon action going. Depending on your vehicle, and the heights involved, it is probably worth your while to just get a 12v pump.I keep my rig at a storage facility not near my home, and there is no water onsite. Rather than having to take my rig to the water, I bring the water to my rig, and the pump is slow enough and easy enough to monitor that I don't have to babysit the fill operation, I can be doing other things while filling.

    The portable water tank I had purchased was of great use when I had a water pump problem on my trailer. All I had to do was fill the portable tank and than transfer the water to my trailer tank. I located the problem fixed it and never had to move my trailer or try to find a water source.

    When I saw this item in the catalog, I jumped on it. It is just what I want for transporting fresh water from a source to my rig when boondocking. BUT... the picture and words definitely imply that gravity is the force for moving the water...no pumps. I do not intend to carry this bladder on top of my truck, and I can't imagine always being in situations where I can count on being able to position my truck to take advantage of gravity to accomplish water transfer. Camping World does not offer a portable pump for potable water that would be a good companion for this product. I did an extensive web search for a pump. Several pumps available but not rated for drinking water. Seems like certification from the FDA is required for pumping potable water. Finally found one. Now I'm looking forward to trying out the combination.

    Portable Fresh Water Tank

    March 19, 2012
    This portable tank saved us! We arrived at our campground, set up camp, only to find out later on that there was no water available. Only water was several miles away and rv's couldn't pull close enough to fill tanks, had to be done with portable containers. We pulled up with our 45 gallon tank, spread it out in the back of our Expedition, filled up and drove away. Back at the campground, pulled into our spot, hooked up a 12v marine pump, within minutes pumped water from portable tank into our rv. Everyone wanted to know where we had gottten our portable tank, Camping World of course. Thank you Camping World for another great product.

    A great way to refill your freshwater tank without breaking your back filling and lifting gallon jugs. Works great without a transfer pump if you place it on the roof top of your truck. The liner and roof must be dry to prevent the tank from sliding. Just drive slow through the park after filling at the sanitation station and you'll do fine!

    Bought the tank in June and used it for the first time this week. Easy to fill and transferred the water to the fresh water tank of my TT with a small electric pump. Fittings didn't leak and the bag folded up and fit back into its box.

    I love this thing. My wife and I like state parks, but never had enough water. I put it on top of my selverodo club cab and drain it into the holding tank. Works great! Now we don't have to scrimp on usage. Also great for washing off the lake smell from the dogs. Beats hauling extra bottles.

    I purchased this so that my family could camp for a full week at state parks that only have electric hookups (I use a Barker blue tote to periodically empty our gray water tank). The bladder goes on top of my Durango, is filled with water, and then I drive SLOWLY back to the campsite. Gravity is then used to transfer the water from the bladder to the camper. The transfer process can be a bit slow perhaps an hour+) but if you're not in a hurry it's no big deal. I love this thing. I've used it many times and it makes transferring a heck of a lot of water a relatively easy and muscle-free event. Some things to look out for... 1. Make sure you have the time to complete the transfer process. 2. Make sure your vehicle's roof is capable of supporting the weight-- 45 gal * 8.3 lbs/gal = 374 lbs of water!

    Great for out door showers and rinse off's. With my daughter's hair alone the camper would fillup quickly. Being on the beach, neat way to rinse off sand. We love it and we couldn't go camping without it.

    I just recently bought this product to use this past weekend at the NASCAR race at the Brickyard. The setup and use was easy and as indicated it has all the items you need except the hose. Based on what they were charging at the track as little as two water fills while dry camping will more than pay for this product. One item I going to add is to use a old RV water pump to assist in filling the RV because I found gravity feed can require a bit of time.

    Just got back from Blue ridge mountains and used our portable water tank and it did exactly what it says. Just remember not to drive to crazy with it on the back of your truck as we found out the hard way, forgot it was there in the dark and we dragged it for a while, so gotta buy a new one. Used the repair kit but its just not made to be dragged for miles, worth every penny though. Happy camping........

    I ordered this item back in the winter and have just had the opportunity to use it. It is well made. Very heavy duty vinyl. Comes complete with all of the adapters that you'll need. I was able to refill my TT fresh water tank in one trip using this product in the bed of my pickup.

    I bought this product so i would have enough water when i went into the forest of the UP of michigan. This product fitted great inside the SUV and i never ran out of water because of this product. It folds up nice and small when not needed. My trailer only holds 26 gallons and this added another 45 gallons. Great product i would tell everyone looking for addition water needs to get this item... Mark

    I used this last week in a park with no water at the campsite. It worked very well, and any odor from the container was taken care of by my filter in the RV. This item is durable, and works as advertised. As it says, it is only for use in the campground and at low speeds. It is helpfull to put it between the roof rack to provide extra support.

    Our Bladder Tank Is Totally Satisfactory


    171 out of 233 people found this review helpful.
    March 12, 2006
    We have used the bladder tank for several years to haul water to the RV when dry camping. It has been very convenient and totally satisfactory. We carry it either on the floor in the back of our SUV or on the roof rack. It is a bit heavy for the roof rack. It weighs about 350 pounds when full but we have had no problem, probably because the load is spread evenly over a large area. The fact that the tank is not suitable for highway use, a complaint voiced by some reviewers, is of no consequence to us. That is not what we bought it for. We have not noticed any unpleasent taste or smell from the water but perhaps that is because it is never left in the tank for very long. We use it only to transport water from the source to the RV tank.

    Folding Water Tank

    We've used our tank for each of the last two years while spending two weeks in a state park in South Dakota that doesn't offer water or sewer at their sites. The bag has performed as advertised. Would recommend that folks thoroughly rense and allow the bag to air out (in the sun) prior to use. We pruchased a small 110 pump that we used to pump the water from the bag to the camper. By doing so the bag can be carried in the bed of our truck and not on top of the cab. Can recommend it for folks who need to carry water under such circumstances.

    Used it for a week boondocking. Cleaned & rinsed it before use like I would with any drinking device & it had no odor or taste like the previous reviewer noted. It does state not for highway use which I don't have an issue with since I'm not driving for miles with it. We filled it several times, kept it on top of a pick up truck top and it worked well.

    During a 13 day stay at a state park that offered only electrical service at its camp sites we made extensive useage of a RV Folding 40 Gallon Water Tank. When combined with a small electric water pump used to empty the tank into the trailer we were able to carry it in the bed or our truck rather than on the top. The tank provided us with very good service and is packed away awaiting our next stay at a similiar site.
