    Not enough info to begin, but google "Cak Tanks".

    They make the tanks for most small-build motorhomes, and many other van conversions, as well as internal ones.

    If they don't have the perfect one then you may well be stuck!

    They have a catalogue you can download, and are at most of the big shows.

    the fiamma roll tanks are easier to store in a locker, but if you have the space use an aquaroll, much better. both will accept a submersible pump to fill the onboard one. otherwise just get a 5 or 10litre plastic jerry can type container and a funnell or even a clean watering can to pour into the vans filler

    the other option of course is to drive to the tap and fill with a hose

    I use a 40ltr Aquaroll to top up the miserable 45ltr onboard tank that Elddis fitted.

    remember how heavy water is

    Water is heavy, even if you roll it, pull it or lug it...

    Me I use a 5 gallon as in old money.... plastic large container that can be moved on a suitcase wheels trolly or in my case I put on the scooter... it has a wide next so the pump I use to transfer it to the main RV tank will fit... got the pump from JCM .. .. but you do need a wide neck container.. 5 gallons is heavy...

    I find the Aquaroll very easy to use.
    Even when it is full it is easy to pull and the dual caps (one on the top and one on the side) mean I don't have to stand it up.
    I appreciate that not everyone has full mobility but I suffer from arthritis and I can still manage quite well.

    We normaly fill up at the water point with a hose and after that use a 40 ltr aquaroll. saves having to drive to the fill up point every time. Even better when you have an external pump to take the water straight to the internal tank.
