Yes / no?
No. 25 litre plastic jerrycan, lightweight folding trolley and a couple of bungees. Cost half the price of an aquaroll, lighter and easier to store.
agree with GJH on this but i have a 16 litre jerry can but one needs the trolley as carrying is a pain.
other option is a larger tank on the motorhome.
NO...we carry 2 x 10l jerry cans & a garden water can, which makes getting the water into the tank easy. I'm not as strong as Graham so find the 25l can too heavy.
PS I find a trolly for 25l can too unstable
I cheat Brian - use a submersible pump that came with the first van
You gotta live dangerously, it's half the fun :Laughing:
I'd say, if you need one, then you are staying in one place too long for a MH therefore you should have bought a caravan.
Has this turned into a caravanning forum?:Wink:
I fill up the truck at the service point after we arrive back
But before bed time :thumb:
When the pump packed up last year
Used a kettle good exercise that was
It should for some. I believe.
All those winter sun seekers, weeks on end static in Spain, they would have better accommodation and local transport with a caravan.
Here.............. what do you want a aqua roll foroh: pull up and over the drain, pull the lever or turn the tap............whoooooosh gone :Wink: for the waste.....or pull up to the water tap, hose pipe, turn tap whooooosh done full....or have you changed your name by depol from Dave to Gunga Din
Brian...is correct you have purchased a Tourer for Touring....not a staticoh:
spot on.....:thumb: thats what we do if on site for more than a few days
It's the first thing and last thing I do when I arrive/leave a site. If I run out during the week I drive very slowly to the fill up point and use a hose unless it is the night before then I will do two runs with a watering can. Only used the watering can once so far...
So the answer is no :thumb:
How long have you been motorhoming? just because you think you have gone upmarket with a Rapido, no need for newbie questions:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Aquarolls are just too big to store.
I tend to cary two extra hoses, and this can negate carrying water but sometimes still borrow others hoses to fill up from a tap that's just too far away.
Sometimes like Chester this weekend, your just too far away from the tap and just need water for flushing or a quick shower, for this I just use a 5 gallon container and a submersible pump which will push it in for me. I'm still strong enough to carry this quite a few hundred metres but a foldaway sack trolley will do for when I can't cope, which won't be too long now, I think I was changing hands every 20 paces yesterday:Laughing:
Ooooeeeerrrrr I`ve got one, it`s left over from when we had a caravan,
I don`t always use it cos I got a watterin can and anose pipe:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Might sound the wrong way around but we have a 40 litre aquaroll for the Stumpy the caravan and a 29 litre aquaroll for the 5'er - we have tried all sorts of ideas for the 5'er but in the end found you cannot beat the aquaroll for that odd bit of water. we always fill up on arrival at site but you can guarantee that the day before you go you need just a few more litres to see you to the end of the visit and the tap is always 20 feet farther away than the length of all the hoses we carry put together - OR tis the otherside of the road and when the hoses are all laid out everyone and their uncle want to drive past.
Do use an aquaroll with a submersible pump to fill up when impossible or inconvenient to get to tap. Some CL/CS have taps in the most inconvenient places.
There's a simple answer to that. Walk on your feet, not your hands :Laughing:
