Try your local hotel as they buy wine in 10 litre casks and they are almost unbreakable. need to be washed out with citric acid to get rid of the wine taste. I have used these for many years of out back travel and have never had one leak, they will last as long as you want but if they deteriate to much go back to the local and get some more. The best part is that they are free.
Happy travels
Bob.

Try ARB, they sell bladder tanks that fit inside the rear body panels of the vehicle so they don't take up any room. I have one in my Nissan and they work great. Come in a variety of capacities.

nabbee, we are looking at using a caravan water tank on the back floor between the seats or in the vacant space with rear seat removed. We have looked at bladders but feel that the water tank is more suitable for us - and more cost effective - half the cost of a bladder and more robust. Easier to fill, and the list goes on.
Not forgetting to use the plastic hose to fill the tank to help with the taste in the water!

Nabbee, I got our water bladder from Opposite Lock. I've used it on 4 trips now and it is fantastic. I removed the rear seat in the Jackaroo, put the bag in the footwell and made a false floor to go over it. Very handy, easy to use and store when not in use and flexible. I agree with using food grade plastic hose to fill it, makes a lot of difference to the taste.
Happy trails, Mike.

Tim, my water bladder was already fitted in the vehicle when I bought it.
It is located inside the passenger side rear quarter panel with an elbow type filler neck fitted neatly into the internal plastic trim panel. The outlet is via a clear plastic hose which comes out through the bottom of the same trim panel. The hose runs below my drawer set and is terminated on the drivers side of the vehicle with a quarter turn plastic valve. The hose clips into a small plastic clip on the drawer set which keeps the hose and valve upright.

Pottsee,Thanks for the clue on floatpac. I went to there factory in boronia>and they can make what ever sizes i need
Bob Thanks for the idea on wine casks its a good one but does not suit my purpose.
Terry We had a caravan water tank fitted to a Landcruiser cab chassis that served us well for many years. We fitted it under the vehicle between the chassis rails and it worked a treat.
Just of interest the Nissan Patrol quarter panel water bladders are available form float pac And to all the other replies Thanks. Nabbee
