I used to use 5 gallon jugs...when I was much younger. Now I use 2, 50 gallon water bladders with a 12 volt pump. One bladder is the CW one and it fits between the 5th wheel and the Tgate.The other is a oblong one and it fits in front of the 5th wheel. I have an 8ft box so it works for me. We dry camp a lot so having the extra water is great. We also have navy showers to help save water. I used to use a hard 50 gal container and used an air compressor to move the water. I also adapted the 5 gallon containers to be used with the air compressor. Where there's a they say.

When we boondocked for the winter in Key West with our trailer I made a fresh water tank adapter out of the cap of a 5 gallon water bottle and a long piece of vinyl tubing. The bottle with the handle molded in the side worked best to keep a grip on it while the bottle was inverted and gravity fed into the tank.

The slower feed was a pain, but since we needed to carry the water a hundred yards or so it made all of the water usable in the tank by not gushing out of the vent too soon.

I put a small air hole to regulate the fill rate. I started small and opened it up to just the rate I needed.

If we kept going back I really like the crop sprayer "re-purposed" to water buffalo. Just finding room for it in the short bed truck would be a problem for us, though.
