How to make custom size water spill bucket for my Suburban?

Hi,
I carry water in my Suburban and it spills and splashes. How do I make a water tub like for the clothes washer so I can capture the spill?

Thanks in advance
Simon

Would it not be easier to change the type of container that you carry water in?

Simon, I would still look into spillproof containers

Otherwise, I would build a plywood box and add a layer or two of fiberglass cloth and resin. Cheap and effective.... but still not as ideal as finding the proper transport container.
