I've heard of these being available in Walmart, but can't seem to find them - any idea where they are, or if another store has them? I like the idea of making them smaller when their not full so they don't take up my truck bed.

Thanks!

If we are talking about the same containers, I bought ours at Walmart. They were in the camping section, not the RV section.

Huh, that's where I'm looking...

What color are they? Are they stand-alone or boxed?

Thanks!

In the camping dept... other camping stores have them too, but Wally World is probably the cheapest!

I finally bought a 55 gallon plastic barrel. its really nice cause it will totally fill my water tank in 1 run ... I keep it in the back of the truck .. and when needed I pump the water from the barrel into the water tank of the R.V. Much easier than making 5 trips to the water valve ..

I paid 45 bucks for the 55 gallon barrel .. and I already had the small water pump ...

just my .02 cents ..

If you are talking about the collapsable clear plastic jugs don't waste your money. After they have been folded/collapsed a few of times they develop small holes where the plastic is repeatedly bent and leakers are useless. The 7 gallon blue plastic jugs from Wally World seem to hold up pretty well, ours are several years old and holding up nicely.

We use to use collapsible jugs but found the water was picking up the smell/ flavor of the plastic so now we use the 5 gal jugs that bottled water comes in.

Ditto! MY blue 5 gallon jug has worked perfect for me the last 15 years. Nice and solid for laying on a picnic table with its own spigot.
