New Fresh Water Tank

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted.  Work and more work around the sticks and bricks.  Well it is now less than 2 months until I leave on my 2016 Travels.

I now have over 12,000 views on my Brent's Travels Blog so I know there are a number of you that are interested in Prius camper conversions or living out of a car.  I decided some time ago to travel again with my Prius but I wanted to make some changes and as of the cold weather returning to the Northeast US my focus is now on design and build.

I am replacing my blue 7 gallon Walmart water tank with a commercial 6 gallon tank that sits lower on the rear passenger side floor (picture above).

This tank sits lower but also allows the front passenger seat to slide nearly all the way back when I travel with company, which is rare. The taller blue tank would hit the reclined front passenger seat.

I will show the install of the new tank in another post.

What is nice about this tank is that it is for drinking water and the fill is offset so I can easily access the full when I open the rear passenger door.

Now focus is on designing the space around and above the tank.  I am sure you will find this more interesting

I'll be posting more soon.



  1. Hi Brent,
    Where did you get your 6 gal water tank? I have looked online without results. What brand is it? Did you install the fill yourself, or did the water tank come as it is pictured?

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for your question on the tank. It comes as described with fill. Here is the link to the tank

      Here is another post with more information



    2. Thank you, Brent. I have devoured your blog! It has been helpful in more ways than I can enumerate. I so appreciate your unselfish sharing of your knowledge. I hope to meet you at the RTR in 2018.

    3. Vicki,

      I'm glad it helps and I will be posting about my 2018 travels prior to arriving at the RTR. See you then.
