Folding water tank-45 gallons

Just added this to my list of purchases before the Safari comes out of storage in March.

A little pricey, but better than lugging 5 gallon jugs of water. We run out of fresh water before we fill either black or grey tank. Wife & kids like to shower each day. This will give a couple more days before we have to move. Quality is like that of a good quality kiddy pool.

P.S. Actual color is blue and is made of heavy vinyl with all hose connection parts.

Jace,

45 gallons is about 370#'s on top of your roof. Would that make your Yukon roll more while cornering and how well is it bladder inside?

God what would happen if you had to swerve for something and the water shifts to the side of the swerve, but does respond coming back?

I'd think twice before strapping a 370# water bladder on my roof ?

John,
You are absolutely correct. The info in the package makes it clear (about10 times) that it is to be used only in the campground and as slow as you can drive. And, don't put it on a wet roof or it will land on your hood if you hit the brakes too hard. I do have a good factory rack that will help to contain it, but I'll likely throw it in the back of the Yukon to be on the safe side. I don't want it rolling off the top and landing on the dog or the kids!

Jace,

I didn't read the entire ad, I just said" @$*%" !

I know you're a bright guy and you wouldn't do anything to put anyone at risk of injury, I just thought of all of the worst case scenarios.

So this would be used in a NF where water isn't available at your site, but there is at least one spigot in the camp. That would be really handy then!
