Watertank for Troopy.

Recently I saw a rental Troopy camper with a watertank installed behind the rear fuel tank, I have searched the internet to locate a manufacturer or supplier, without success, hopefully somebody may know where I can get one for my Troopy.

If you can't find it, chances are it was custom made. I have a relative who had some huge fuel tanks made for a converted bus motor home by this company. He was very happy with the quality.http://www.wrengcotanks.com.au/index.html

Johnny,

Boab make a range of poly tanks, one of which could suit. They are available from many 4WD places. You can view the range here www.dolium.com.au
Also a number of sizes of other brands are available from caravan places.

I have three of the Boab 40 litre tanks behind the front seats of my Troopy with hoses running to the rear doors. When I first installed them they were couplrd together to a single hose but then I reasoned that I could lose all my water if I got a leak, or pollute all my water if topping-up from an uncertain source en-route. So I separated them.

Cheers
Allan

Blimey, with over forty standard sizes of water tank there would have to be one there to suit almost anyone!

Hi Richard, They are from Long Ranger or LRA who have ARB as their distributor. I have asked them for a price for my troopy. It is not going to be cheap....

Cheers

Hey Richard
Now that's a blast from the past! I sent you those a couple of years ago!
Yes, it is a Long Ranger by ARB.
We have been happy with it. Filler is under the bonnet with the tap at the rear under the Kaymar Bar. Should have photographed that at the same time.

Opp's meant to say if John wants a picture of the tap to ask. Won't be relevant unless you have a Kaymar bar though.

Lyndon,
I'd like a picture of both the tap and filler mate as I have a Kaymar bar on my Troopy.

Actually I wouldn't mind some information on its mounts too as I reckon I could make one!

You could try Stratco, if you can draw and measure up what you want.
Once they bend it up take you car down and check the fit before they weld it tight.

Doug, mine are also under the bed in the Troopy, behind the front seats.
But they are firmly restrained. In the event of a frontal collision I wouldn't welcome 120 litres of water trying to continue forward through my seat!

Long Ranger make a TW05 - 54 litre water tank that goes over the prop shaft - might be the one in Richard's photo.LINK.

opposite Lock have a 40litre WTS78 which fits behind the rear tank.

has anyone ever tried this... I am about to do it from my current base in Lima, Peru

sent your exhaust out early (and up in my case) and ditch the big muffler...

see this guys post link

he installs a german 100 water tank in the huge area the muffler left behind, but i also thought of using the other side as well (like the TW05).

the tank will have two low points, but i guess a split intake line should fix that easy enough...
