Gravity would be your friend too. No pumping for showers, toilet, sink etc. just once, to get water up top. You could use a little 12v bilge pump for that.

I'll be starting my own project soon. I may use some of the ideas that come up in this thread.

The seller of this (soon to be GXV) will be dropping it off in a week.



There is a power tailgate coming with it too.

It's really slow, but it ain't for racing.
Deeds,
Very cool...you have more guts than I do.
The bladder idea is a good one for hot water. I have always been a tent camper so washing is an option especially in the desert, otherwise the lake or trout stream works for me but I dream of hot springs most nights.
