Water Bladder from Discount RV Supply

Does anyone have experience doing business with Discount RV, Marine and Sport Supply? I am particularly interested in their 45 or 60 gal. Water Boy/Waterhauler bladder kit? This is a kit that includes the bladder, pump, hose, and fittings. They have a website at discount-rv-marine.com, but apparently seem to do most of their business at rallys and shows as there is no provision for ordering online.

I like the looks of this kit (Water Hauling Bladders) and am hoping to get some good feedback.

I've been looking for the exact same thing. Only one I have found is the one from Campingworld.

That one is a bit different from the CW one, that one is just the bladder and is shaped differently Designed to be strapped on a car or pick up roof, Not carried in the bed of a truck or inside a car as this one can be...

No mention of the price on the web page you linked to.

The pump might be handy for when you can't get right next to the bravity feed.

Thanks for the link WIll think about it years from now.

Actually the Campingworld bladder can be used in the bed of a pickup or SUV, in fact that is how most people use them.

I emailed to Discount RV, but got a permanent failure to deliver message.

I experienced the email failure as well, but they list an alternative address on their home page that seems to work okay (DiscountRV@hotmail.com). Their site is very simplistic and looks like a DYI job, but may still represent a solid business. Hence, my request for feedback. I will let you know if I hear back from them.

I did get a reply from Discount RV Marine Sport Supply. The prices have gone down. The 40 gallon is $175 and the 60 gallon is $205.

Contact them at discrvmar@email.com by email or 303-358-8539 by phone. Their WEB sit is www.discount-rv-marine.com . The link to their sales flyers is Our** Flyer

Of you are looking for a tank to use in the bed of your truck, look at ValleyVet.com for water tank. They carry half moon lay down tanks with 48 gallons, or 60 gallon tanks to fit between the hitch and the tail gate.
We use the 48g tank as it fits crosswise between the bed rails on top of the L shaped fuel tank. Then plumbed another RV pump at the rear of the truck bed to refill the RV tank. Makes it easy when you need to go pick up additional water as well.

I finally connected with Al at Discount RV. He was up in Alaska near the Arctic Circle, so it took a few days. My WaterBoy is on the way and am look forward to trying out in the Smokies in October. Will let you know how it does.
