    I've just bought an Autoquest 120. I've had a couple of trips - Pitlochry and Fort William - thoroughly enjoyed myself and everything in the van worked fine.

    We carried our drinking water in a plastic jerry can but found it difficult to fill our kettle from it. Does anyone know if there's a stand that can be bought to hold it off the ground? I've searched the internet but can't find anything at all.

    Thanks for your time.

    Jim

    Has it stopped raining. Was up in Alford last week, it rained like it was an Olympic Event. The reason we bought a MH was touring Loch Lomond on a bike just two years ago we got so wet it convinced us we were getting too old for that sort of touring.

    We use a couple of 5l square thick plastic "cans" bought at a show. Just the job for a good few days. Why don't you get one smaller one and decant every few days ?

    Hi and welcome, Im a newbie to this site as well.

    In answer to your question, I dont know of a stand but i do know that you can get the white plastic gerry can style of fresh water container with a tap set in it from camping shop shops, so you just have to put it on a worksurface once filled and use the tap for supply.You can also get them in the collapsable concertina style which when empty weigh next to nothing - we have one of those.

    Hi there and WELCOME mariner41:winky:

    Best place to look for a stand I would think look in a mainly camping shop, sounds more like there type of thing.

    HI and welcome to Motorhome fun:thumb::thumb:


    Just a thought, but would it not be easier to use your on board tank, or doesn't it have one? and run the water through the taps.

    Hi and :welcome:to the funsters!

    We are fairly new also to m/h , we use one of those collapsible water containers with a spout and refill it every few days, we bought ours in 'The Range' only a pound or two but are availble most places for camping
