Works for me…………Like I have said before, we all have our own ideas. I also have a 28 gallon tank, but storing it is always a problem.

Lou, I have seen people put bladders, on car roofs and caved the roof in from the weight.

Yea, that is why that large one on the truck roof looks dangerous to me. In the olden days truck roof's were stronger, I guess. Today, that much water would most likely damage the truck.

They used to put it up there so gravity would transfer the water to the camper without a pump. Using a pump, the truck bed or tailgate would work just fine.

I think I'd find a way to work around the water challenge before I accepted the quality of a Jayco over a Rockwood. No comparison.
