Funny thing about this picture is that it looks like Pedro is out for a ride in his 109 but if you look closely its sitting on a car trailer.....

If it has 'Overland' or 'Expedition' in the name, you probably don't need it.

Pedro's used to riding in the back of a pickup truck.. That's the way all illegal immigrants get around..

(using 6063-T52 aluminum rectangle tube, low pressure relief valve, fittings, hose, filler neck, etc). A 3" x 6" x 60" 6063-T52 aluminum rectangle tube will hold 3.8 gallons of water without taking in consideration the hose.

PVC is out of the question due to its low thermal conductivity.

Anywhoo...

What do you guys use? Without shelling out 300 clams?
REALLY?

Your MEXICAN ass has to invade my CONDO AU LAKE to shower , cause you bitch to shower in public and you will really use this?

NOW, if this is your way to outfit the ultimate 130 Posseur, knock yourself out

Ok so I have one of these, it works well. I changed a few things like added a brass T at the tank with a shut off so water doesn't freeze in the line. Added a quick connect hose so the shower isn't on there all the time and ran a line to the back of the truck for drinking/cooking water. Now if it is cold boil some water. I use my compressor for air so pressure isn't an issue. I have an extendable painter's pole that i attach the nozzle to and lock on. It works well as a shower, great as an accessible 5 gal water tank, and awesome for hosing the kids down. Click image for larger version

Never happened. It's photoshopped.

Wait, are you talking about here or Dweb...I mean this is the site where folks don't drive their rugged vehicles in the rain because the crossmember might spontaneously burst-and boost weeks don't help offroad.

I have one of these and like it. I spent 5 days in big bend this and used it for washing dishes, hands, etc. I keep a small bike pump attached to the Schraeder valve, though you have tp pressurize it often.
