[RC] Water Container for Truck - LUCIE HESS

I'm trying to think of another way to carry extra
water to the rides.  I currently have a 30 gal tank in
the rear tack compartment of  my trailer 

On two day rides, with 2 horses, we are hauling water
by Saturday night. I've had donated to me by one of my
traveling partners, a  large barrel that has a spigot
on the bottom, but this barrel must have had olives in
it as it smells to high heaven and I won't use that
water because I think if I can't stand the smell, my
horse won't drink it.
So, I'm looking for some type of water tank to add to
my truck.  I am shying away from the trailer roof
models, no real reason, just don't want that weight up
there on top of the trailer.
I have a Ford 550 with a Western Hauler type bed. 
(Means it doesn't have any sides to it.)
What would work best?  I've seen some trucks with add
on metal tanks that look like auxillary gas tanks, how
do those get attached to the truck?
Currently my spare tire is mounted on the rack that is
right behind the rear window.
I'm interested in any suggestions.  Thanks, Lucie Hess
