Water Storage While Truck Camping

14 days of water, at 2.5 gallons per day equals 35 gallons, plus 5 gallons emergency,  equals 40 gallons of water, which equals 320 pounds. Yikes! That is heavy. Where to store it so that it is accessible and in a good spot for the balance of the truck?

I have been planning to store the water in the bed of the truck, under the shelf by the cab. Not a good plan.

I think that clothes, poop bucket and tools would be better there. How about the water in the cab of the truck, behind the passenger’s seat?  And some behind driver’s seat? There is access (after all, this is a Toyota Tacoma with an access cab) and the weight distribution would be acceptable.
What do you think?
