Another thing I remember seeing guys use in the desert is 6" or greater PVC piping thatís capped off at both ends with a hose bib on one end and some sort of check valve on the other. Try to picture anywhere you could strap a certain length of PVC pipe with this set up. (undercarriage, roof, garage, etc) I would guess you could get a little more than a gallon per foot with this set up (Iím sure somebody will do the math and prove me wrong, but i was picturing a milk jug was about 12" high by 6" roundish) This would spread the weight out over the length of the pipe and be pretty cheap to build/install.

LOVE this idea! And you are close on the math. It's 1.47 gallons/foot according to Calculator for Volume, Diameter, and Length of a Cylindrical Container or Tube

I need to install some e-track on the sidewalls to help secure things in the garage section. This will help with securing the water drum as well as other things.
