I have two of these and they are great for rain water storage. I have been using them for two years now without problems. You need to remove the plastic part to wrap it in thick black plastic to keep the light out so it won't grow algae. Mine are stacked but I never use the bottom one because I don't get enough gravity flow to water the garden. I wish I could get these into my basement but they are just too big.

DaveP, if you throw in for gas I can make a trip with you. no trailer but it's a 8 foot bed so it should be able to carry two.

Wow - glad to be of service!  I'm getting 2 totes, but go my emails mixed up so I'm paying more...BUT they came with pro kitchen sanitizer in them, by definition clean, so I won't have to clean out any oil residue, and getting them delivered - worth the extra cost, or at least that's what I'm telling myself :)

Still WAY cheaper than getting 5 55G barrels, or that big tall one...the only thing is, I won't be able to fit them in my house...I'm thinking of getting some of these for the basement for $14 each down Rt. 30:

Dave,
Great find on the 275 gallon totes. I picked one up today (would have gotten 2 but I couldn't fit both of them in the bed of my truck.  I have a 6-ft bed with a tool box.   2 should fit in an 8-ft bed but you may have to leave the tailgate down so bring some cargo straps.   Aaron was a super nice guy to deal with. 
The totes had either olive oil or balsamic vinegar. You can pick which one you want. I chose the vinegar, thinking it may be easier to clean. The nice thing about these totes is that they only weigh about 60lbs empty and are strong enough to stack 2 high when full. 
Aaron said he gets about 60-70 of these a month so it sounds like there will be plenty to go around. 
I'm taking my trailer next week and picking up a few more for me and a friend. 
I almost had myself talked into dropping $600 for one another storage system. You email was perfect timing. 
Thanks again!!!
Dan

Hi all - just came across a GPS enabled, 2 way radio w/ topographic maps included solar-charged tablet that is just going into production:
I've also been researching water storage, and found a local source for food grade IBC (275 gallon tanks on a pallet w/metal cage supporting everything) containers for $60:
Similar capacity would cost hundreds more and take up much more space if you bought 5 of these @ $95
This one is well-reviewd, but expensve @ 429 + $250 in shipping, but is designed to fit through interior house doors:
