Yes Marino's shape is the one I have. We have a little one in the car so unfortunately I cannot sacrifice both back seats which alternatively would have been great. Only sacrificing one does help but creates awkward packing arrangement in remainder of space. I like the idea of the on roof solution and have smaller containers to keep in the car during the day. Practical solution with all kinds of practical benefits.

The 50l one is actually a better option in my opinion if you want to fit it inside the car as it is angled on the one side to fit behind the seats. This fits nicely behind the rear seats and take up much less packing space than a square tank.

This is basically what I have in my Troll and it works well.

I found space for a water tank next to the sub tank (on the pickup).
Measured and a tank of about 50 x 40 x 25 cm should be able to fit (about 50 liter).
It will be quite close to the exhaust so recon stainless steel would be a better option.
