If I remember right, they aren't for drinking water. I thought it used to say that on their site, but I can't find it now.

We carry 2-50'ers and 1-25"er of white hose, 1-15'green hose to hook up at hydrant on the y and one 40-50' gray hose for grey water and washing/flushing tanks and hoses.

I wrap them around a 5gal bucket then push off and store in a tub (fresh water in one, waste in another) we carry to much junk for a reel, but if we had room we would use whatever walmart has.

I'm the odd one .... only carry two 25 ft hoses and never needed more than one. Just been very lucky but would still carry extra just in case.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

95% of the time I hose. I primarily boondock and only have the water in my trailer when I leave the house. I carry 2 extra 6 gallon jugs giving me a total capacity of 62 gallons. I can make it a week pretty easy.

I have two-25 ft. hoses. I have only used one so far. I also have a spare electrical and sewer. When in doubt about a campground, call ahead and ask them.

You beat me to that one!

FYI, After many attempts at various "cool" water hose solutions, I am back to the 3/4 inch white water hose and carry 2 25 foot lengths. If I find I need more to get to a hose bib then I am "dry camping" and either borrow a few sections from a neighbor to fill the fresh tank or use my square plastic bottles and dolly.
