I have an extra 30 gallon fresh water tank that I wish to place in the back of my toad (1986 Chevy Nova) and transfer water to the MH.

The car is old and very light. I will have new springs installed and the backseat and all the stuff in the hatchback portion have been removed. This car is suppose to carry 5 passangers, with me alone and the water I think I can make it?

I also plan, rarely to place a 25 gallon blue boy in the car and transfer the waste that way without moving the MH. I have a Macenator Pump and a Fresh water pump for both the waste and the fresh water.

The transfer distance would only be a mile or so at Quartzsite, but at other boondocking locations I might have to go on the highway for 10 miles or so.

Weight wise, I don't see any problems. Are you gonna offer yourself out as a water/waste hauling service? ED

with both full that would be about 500 pounds. Sounds like weight will be OK.
...remove seats, new springs....by any chance were any of your ancestor's moonshiners
