I bought an 18 gallon Thetford unit. I find it a lot easier to toss it in the back of the truck and take it to the dump station than hook up and reposition the trailer again... but I am lazy! My experience is that we have to do this every 3 days.

I have a 17 gallon tote. when it's loaded (which I try to avoid) it's heavy and very difficult to maneuver. It's wheeled but doesn't tow. Ann and I have a he*l of a time loading it onto the tailgate. We're on the hunt for a 10 gallon. Will take up less room in my truck bed also.

Better idea -- in the campsite, just be sure you're always parked next to a someone whose RV is 40' or longer. Then, after everyone's asleep, just hook up your sewer hose to his rig ....

Comes in handy for carrying some grey water to the slop sink in many Natl and State campgrounds. Not too heavy... Amazon.com: Tote-N-Stor 25951 Portable Waste Transport - 6 Gallon Capacity: Automotive

This is my solution. Cost less than $20 and I can lift it and carry.

We're looking into Donna's solution as it seems the easiest and most economical.

Couldn't believe the shipping on the Amazon tote ... $25! However, chances are, local RV stores might have something similar.

I'd rather use my homemade tote twice a day (which I don't) than carry a huge tote which takes up valuable space, or unhook everything to go to a dump station. YMMV

Well at least we will know where Donna is, again, when she isn't around the campfire…

Yeah, I'm a fun gal This homemade tote is a nice to have item. I've been known to camp for a couple of days and then NOT want to wait in line at the dump station when leaving. I can go home and take care of the business there because I can pick the tote up and dump it down the toilet.

Potty mouth!
