Interesting. What is the water for? Livestock? Does it slosh bad and sway your truck?

I live in the desert, we have no well. I have a 2500 gal holding tank for domestic use and haul to fill it.
In my little desert runner, I used to haul it in the bed because I didn't have my trailer yet, 250 gals at a time, (at about 8lbs per gal) and the roads here at that time were BAD!!

Some is us take so much for granted. Clean drinkable community water is a blessing from God!

Every time I have broken a control arm, or cracked an axle housing, or have to haul water, and I think, "this is enough, that's it", all I have to do is take a drive to the city and its all so worth it. Soon I will have a well put in, the average is 700 plus ft below the desert floor and maybe a heat pump unit for these triple digit temps. I just got power a couple yrs back. We are crawling one step at a time, but it's all paid in full, no financing anything.

I like it. Let me know how it pulls when loaded on your next journey.

So far so good, I just pulled it across northern Arizona. Ah!!! It's so good to be up on the Colorado plateau here and COOL off. It felt like (power wise), my little 2.5 L while towing. Gas mileage sucked, 9 to 11 MPG, but I was pulling grade almost constant. My son's Titan behind me fared about the same gas mileage.

We started at 2000' above sea level and towed up grade to about 6500'/7000' and back. Best mileage was about 13 and worse was 9.3 mpg. She bogged some on grades, depending how steep, but kept up with traffic, I could have got more speed but kept it at about 60-65.

Sounds like it pulls OK for its size.
