Barker 32 gallon sewage tote

I just ordered a 32 gallon barker 4 wheel sewage tote from Barker manufacturing in Battle Creek Michigan. I was looking for a tote with pneumatic wheels which barker is now doing. I wanted to share with everyone that I had a great experience with this company. Not only did they answer all of my questions about axles, tires(particularly that the pneumatic tires are American made), and the tank itself, but to my surprise the next day I recieved a phone call from the service dept. giving me a choice between pneumatic wheels or hard rubber wheels with steel rims,all at a good price!! In my opinion, a company that goes out of it's way to satisfy the customers needs (like escape industries also does) is who I want to be dealing with. Thanks Bob at barker industries. Nice to see business starting to be done in a better way with honor and integrity!

I was pretty sure that someone would make the Bob Barker connection. I think it's the same guy!!!!! Door #1 pneumatic, Door # 2 hard rubber, Door # 3 no wheels.

All right, I just have to ask! How are you planning on using this tote? It's significantly larger than the black water tank on your 17B, so does add substantial capacity. Wheels or no wheels though, when full it's going to weigh over 250 pounds.

The answer would be hook it on the ball of my tow vehicle, and keep the speed under 30 miles an hour! 2 trips. first the black tank, and then flush with the grey tank. 19 and then 26 gallons. 32 was the closest I could come to holding the full grey tank.

I have played this game when we used to leave our old trailer in one spot alot, the one consideration that needs to thought of is gravity is required to get the waste from the trailer tank to the portable tank. So unless that inlet to the portable is lower than the outlet on the trailer it doesn't work very well. This whole deal isn't the most pleasant thing to deal with so making it work well is key. Our trailers are fairly low to the ground compared to mosr stick builts so I hope it works for you.

Sometimes the dump station can be a mile or more away from the camp site. Often streets and highways are involved.
$250.00 +-, 37 pounds empty, almost 8 cubic feet of storage space needed. Where are you going to put it while your traveling?

Maybe inside the trailer on the bed?

Just kidding. To me it would be faster, cleaner, and simpler to just hitch up and make a quick trip to a dump station. (which is what I typically do).

Ditto. I leave everything behind, including the Old Bag. Hook up and go. Empty black and grey and fill fresh water. Back in no time and more likely to situate the trailer better the second time.

As I said earlier I have used this method and with the 19 I believe it's easier all around in this case to just hook up and go do the job and come back
