We go to state parks without water hookups but there are plenty of places to fill up in the park. I'll drive up there empty, fill the tank, park, then top off as necessary. I got this Rhino container and walk the water back and forth.

Last time we went I forgot to fill up with water but I made a few trips and filled it up manually. We were ~four spots away from the spigot. No issues.

I use one of these http://http://www.campingworld.com/b...FcYfhgodAYYE5g

Instead of gravity feed, I purchased a small 12v electric pump that I power from an adapter to trailer plug in on the truck.

I have three 20 liter collapsible water containers. When I need a refill and my 115 feet of combined water supply hoses will not reach a hydrant, I convey the filled containers in a folding wagon to the RV. The folding wagon also doubles as a grandkid and beach chair/cooler transport.

I've used various sizes of jugs, but generally favour 10 liter (just over 2 Cdn gallons). Anything else is too clumsy and heavy. I am usually not in a panic to deal with the water, so these work okay. I just purchased a nice 25 gallon plastic water tank to put in the back of the truck. I plan to use a little 12 volt pump to transfer water to the trailer if and when necessary. We just spent three nights at the Bonneyville M.D. campground at Cold Lake, AB. There was a hydrant about 75 ft. from the trailer, so every once in a while, I would wander over with a couple of jugs.

Here is a photo of the 45 gallon bladder in the back of my truck with an old RV water pump attached... (the crane is for lifting the generator in and out of the truck)
