What happened to the idea of large PVC pipes to store the water? Could probably fit them under the roof rack.

Cost and time. It was going to cost more for the pvc parts AND time to assemble/mount. If northern tool specifications were right, this tank would have fit under the rack. I still may see if i can make it fit under.
PVC would have been fun to build though.

If you find yourselves in Colorado you really should try to check out St Mary's Glacier.
not the best picture, but the back of Roxy's head is glorious!

Sounds like a plan.

Here is the link for anyone else that wants to try it.

Thar she blows. Back feeding in water worked like a charm. 17 min of letting the water run out. Looks like about a half tank left. I've got a 15' hose from the tank down to the single shut off valve and the spray nozzle on that. All done at 25 min
