It happened to me...

Don't laugh, it happens many times, and it could be your turn, next.

Water improves your chances of getting to your destination.

Towing in the mountains, up a grade on a warm day, I blew a radiator hose. I happened to have thrown the old spare hose in the last time I replaced hoses. I put the old hose on, and using water from my trailer I was up and running again.

Resale value is another reason to have a freah water tank IMO. I wouldn't buy a trailer without one...

Same story, different trailer.

Hi, 94Tri took the words right out of my mouth.

Bad idea.
I always leave home with a full water tank. If you get stuck somewhere it could be a life saver.

If you take the tank out store it away in the garage with all the fittings. That way you can put it back in if you sell the trailer or change your mind.

Living in the trailer park of sense, looking out the window at a tornado of stupidity.
