Anyone found reason to relocate a Burro water box?

After all the great comments received from you folks responding to my questions about 13' Burrow gross weight, tongue weight & trailer load strategies, I'm wondering why the Burro architects located all the heavy stuff on one side of the trailer......h2o tank, sink, refrigeration, stove, & addition to any propane tank.

Wouldn't relocating the water tank to the passenger side rear corner help in getting side-to-side wheel weight more balanced? A bit further to plumb for the sink but still.

Thatís where Scamp puts it. The electrical utilities are in the rear driverís side bench.

In a 13í trailer there arenít too many places to put things, especially a larger thing like the water tank. Campground utilities are on the driverís side, so thatís another constraint. Itís better to have propane exhaust vents on the driverís side, too.

But yes, it will be fine there. Longer plumbing runs means more places to freeze or leak and more pumping if you have a hand pump, but everythingís a trade-off.
