Must say, I bloody love having a ute!

Pictured here is 13 x 42l flexible tubs from bunnings. The square kind. They perfectly fit the tub, which I can then have half a cubic meter of soil dumped into at the landscaping shop. Saves a lot of effort with the wheelbarrow!!

Looks like you need some sort of tub liner protection in there asap....

This water tank looks interesting too
One thing to keep in mind regarding water tanks in poly is that tank i saw in your supplied link is whats called "natural" colour for the polyethylene, if the tank is going to be subject to any sunlight i would not get that particular colour otherwise you will end up with pond water. Go for black then your water will stay crystal clear.
Im really quiet surprised that a poly manufacturer is advertising any water tank in natural.

Yep it was $1450 installed at my local ARB. Now bit of a back story to that price though.....

I initially paid something like $1720. Then I saw on a facebook group people saying they had theirs installed for $1450. I got quotes from 2 other ARBs not too far away which were $1450 also. I spoke to ARB head office and they told me there's actually a RRP pricelist on the website which includes parts + labour, that does have some minor changes based on postcode. I checked the price list and again it was $1450.

So then head office said that the ARB I went to was technically an ARB re-seller, not an official ARB store. Apparently the resellers can charge different prices.
Well I kicked up a stink about that because there is no way to tell it's an ARB re-seller, especially considering the bloody 40 ft sign out the front that say "ARB". And that they are listed as "ARB xyz-suburb", and the fact that they don't sell anything other than ARB gear!!! It is no different to any other ARB mega-store I've ever stepped into. Ridiculous.

I gave the store a fair go, spoke to them and said that they must have "accidentally" charged me more than the other two nearby ARB stores. They apologised and refunded me the difference...
At $1450 I'm happy with the price, especially considering the roof lining needs to be dropped so they can properly bolt the backbone rails on. As I said, rhino is just pop-riveted from the outside only.

Moral of the story is double check the price list on the ARB website first. Other than that, I was happy with the service and very happy with the product
That would put me off dealing with them again 馃檮
