Portable water

Carrying water does have a very small effect on gas Milage.

Carrying water may assist in trailer stability.

If you are under weight, the extra water weight may reduce the bouncing around on those bumpy roads.

Very good point there. Better to travel with a near full tank than half a tank. You won't get the back & forth, side to side "sloshing"

As a idea for good water keep a eye open for water towers in rural areas and small towns. Most will have water available. At least in my part of the Country. Common for farmers to get water for livestock in large tanks if there's a dry spell and also some rural people still have cisterns that have to be refilled when rain is sparse.
