Big Bladder

No, not that kind of bladder. :icon_rolleyes: The primary use of the WaterBOB is to store potable water in your bathtub for 4-6 weeks. Not a bad addition to your hurricane supplies, should you ever consider riding out a storm. Personally, I just head to Austin every time a hurricane threatens to blow through. I was thinking this might also be of use for extended base camp water storage. You'd need to store it where it wouldn't get punctured like a large ice chest. It comes with a siphon to transfer water out. Or if MountainDocDanny is available to sherpa it around for you, it could be the world's biggest CamelBak. :icon_biggrin:

This might be an option too - although it is more expensive and is only 45 gallons.

Portable RV Fresh Water Tank: 45 Gallon

This product, when filled with water, is limited for use in RV parks, campgrounds and on level ground. Not for highway use. Not for use on lightweight vehicles.

When RVers set up for months at a time in the boondocks, they need ways to move gray/black waste and bring in fresh water.  Check out the forum at for all kinds of ways and devices to move water without moving the rig.
