I would have thought that the folks at Airstream, at least in WB's day would have planned on travelling with full tanks and designed everything around that premise. Camp grounds with full hookups were few and far between at the beginning. Boondocking war probably the norm, and having a full water tank would be common sense.

Desert boondocks here.

Always leave home with full water tanks. We know the water is good and don't have to worry about finding it wherever we may go.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

This is only marginally on-topic, but if you like to fill from campgrounds or other places, pick up some drinking water treatment tablets at your local army surplus or outdoor supply store. What these are, is chlorine tablets, similar to what you would use in your pool. You can keep them in their dry form for a very long time, and you can dissolve them in a bottle of water to sanitize (kill off the micro-bugs) your drinking water in the fresh tank, if needed.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

We're full-timers, so we have to fill at all sorts of places. Our coach holds over 100 gallons of fresh water, so we don't often travel with it full. On the other hand, travel days usually span lunch, so traveling with no water isn't a good idea, either. I like to have at least 1/4 tank while underway.
