    I use the £30.00 Gardiners one, works well.

    Just an FYI, there's a search function. :)

    My advice would be to run twin trolleys for a simple life.

    had thought of using another trolley just the amount of water barrels i would need would be alot compared to one 400 tank.

    In My van i have a wydale tank with a bilge pump in it 12v.

    Takes around 45 seconds to fill a bigboy back pack.

    So i dont do the whole 25L swap over.

    You will use more water running off a van as well.

    Hose on the right fills the tank, i am looking at getting a petrol nozzle style filler though. As i am using a tap and its costing me a minute each time i fill up (20/30mins a day)
