We just bought a fifth wheel and it has a puny 44 gallons fresh water tank. Yes its made for FHU, but we dry camp a lot. 30 days this year. 44 gallons good for 4 days me and the wife its not enough. So in the spring I will either add or swap tank out for more. Funny they aren't built for dry camping yet the grey and blank tanks are huge. I guess they figure that I can pee more than I can drink....go figure....

I think the smaller fresh tank with large grey tank is made for the fairly normal state park that has electric and water at the site but no sewer. I know that's what I would use far more than a huge fresh tank.

One cup of coffee/tea/beer equals 5 trips to the bathroom.
Go pee & wash hands, uh oh I hear water running, I have to pee again. repeat x 5.
