Lightbulb Rainwater collection system

Has anyone found a rainwater collection system specifically designed for RV's? Or one that can be adapted for use on an RV? I am not interested in a homemade system, but more of one that I can buy online.

Could be for many uses -- watering plants, filling toilet, rinsing pots/pans/dishes, rinsing off boots, a bicycle, 3-wheeler, cleaning solar panels, the windshield, body side, etc. When boondocking, I don't want to use my fresh water tank for such things.

Ok. Well I don't have any solutions. But I see what your saying. Maybe camp beside a stream. Good luck

I would look to state laws as it is illegal to do so.

All I've ever seen is homemade systems for RVs. Never seen a store bought outfit.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I would just dump your gray water into a bucket and use that except for washing dishes. You can also use a a piece of PVC from the gutter spout down to a bucket. But still wouldn't wash my dishes in it...

My awning will dump every little bit during a rain. Would be no problem to catch that I guess??
