Totes are the cheapest way to get water IME.

Food grade totes/barrels should work. We use to use a few big ice chests to haul water, screw a hose to the drain and put it ontop of the tool box or bed rail of the pickup.

150 gallon tank plumbed into an on demand water pump. We refill it with a 275 gallon tote that we run into town and fill at the fire station. We built a plywood "shed" around the tank to keep the sun off it, and every fill we pour in about one cup of bleach to 100 gallons of water and that generally keeps it clean enought between visits. We have a thermal cube hooked up to a light bulb mounted right near the pump to try and keep it warm when it's below freezing outside. Been that way for almost ten years now, only issue is when close to or below 0.

That is what we use but you will need two. One for camp and one to haul water to the camp.

One tote will last me 6 months with showers and wash ups. If my wife is there it may last a couple of weeks. roflmao

Bear in mind that water weighs about 8 1/3 pounds per gallon.

275x8.34=2,293.5 pounds.

I have a similar set up ... I bought a food grade plastic barrel, built up a PVC replacement bung with a water facet installed so a hose could be connected. The other bung, I drilled a hole and installed a stainless steel tire valve stem. I stand the barrel up in the truck and fill at home, then transport to the lease, lay the barrel down in the bed of the truck with facet towards the tail gate, attach a garden hose to the faucet, open the facet, then use a 12Vdc air compressor to apply a little bit of pressure thru the valve stem to pressurize the barrel to help the flow rate. It takes 5-10 minutes to offload 55 gallons of water into the holding tank of the RV ...

The barrel is easy to maneuver by one person and easy to store when not in use.

Paint it black on the outside so the stuff won't grow inside. Or have someway to keep it out of the light.
