    Re: [RC] hay rack water tank - Sullivan

    I have a hay rack type water tank that I got from an RV place.  It holds about 75 gal, and believe me, THAT  can go fast if you take more than 2 horses to a ride.  I take mine off the trailer when I don't use it.  The down side is that the sun will just cook the plastic....they need to have some sort of UV cover on them. Mine has leaked from the hose-clamp part, and also come up with small pinholes. If you don't keep them drained when not in use they will grow algae...all in all, somewhat of a hassle.  Unless you consistently haul to places where there is NO water, but what you have to haul...probably not worth it.

    I'm thinking of asking for the hay rack water tank in the SportTack catalog for xmas.  Does anyone have this (or  similar one) - what do you think?
    It holds 35 gallons, comes with a hose to use to get water, and it looks like I could still fit 2 bales of hay in the rack with it up there.
