Shopping for holding tanks

Where have you all had good luck finding well priced tanks? Right now I'm finding 100gal tanks for ~$500, or >250gal tanks priced more reasonably at $150 and up. I just can't see where I would be able to put a 250gal tank, and I don't think that I can spend $1,000 on water tanks. Suggestions?

And naturally, as soon as I post this I find dozens of BPA free tanks over at www.ntotank.com Thanks for tuning in!

We are going to hang 35 gallon poly drums under the E450 and 55 gallon poly drums under the Bluebird.

Locally available, cheap and rugged.

Fittings are available for the "bungs" as well as "spin-weld" fittings.

Just stop by a weld shop and price a custom size tank in Aluminum or stainless. I had two 110 gallon stainless tanks made for a reasonable price. And they fit exactly the way I want.

You in the US or Canada? I went with Blaze Plastics. 98 gallon fresh, 85 gallon grey and 30 gallon black, shipped, for 615 CAD

I am doing my own fittings though

Are you able to share the price? My 110-gallon stainless tanks with fittings were $388 each, shipping included, certified food-grade. In hindsight, I wish I would have shopped around more.

I'm going with something like these, since I can get them almost perfectly sized to fit in my storage bays.
46 Gallon Fresh Water Tank concession rv 12v WATER PUMP & STRAINER 46TK-12FJ | eBay

For $170 this one even comes with the pump.
