Thanks guys,
At this time I’m more inclined to a 5th wheel. There is a RV show in about two weeks in SFO bay area. I will stop by to get more info.
To clarify a bit further, regarding the water supply, I was referring to “boondock”. I just need to get real world numbers. For example, two people boondocking for the weekend at Mojave, CA. Assume no dishes to wash even if so, a very little.

It's very difficult to estimate how much water people need because people have different habits. You will learn to manage with what you have and carry bottled drinking water just in case. Lots of boondockers will "navy shower" or even skip a day or two to conserve water. Others say they catch the water that runs while waiting for it to warm up and use that to flush the toilet. Also, carry hand sanitizer so you can clean your hands without running water.

You are limited to the capacity of your fresh tank, so you'll just need to take a trip or two and see how that works for you. We have not camped without hookups for longer than a couple of days, so haven't worried about running out of water.

Oh--and there's a section of the forum dedicated to boondocking, so you can probably get more info there. Good luck.
