As Clutch said get the ones with the side dump valve... lifting them on end to dump is not good for your back...

I have been using a 15 gal Barker tote. I have to pull the tank up hill to the outhouse to empty it. I would not want a bigger tank for the following reasons. 1. It would be too heavy for me to pull up hill 2. When traveling it would take up too much room.

I have a Thetford 27 gallon. I would have to make two trips to the dump even with the larger size and this one fits nicely behind my hitch and the tailgate when traveling. Fortunately I was just upgraded to a host site that has a sewer hookup so I won't be using my tote again this summer.

LOL... funny, I was just doing some "maintenance" on the trailer! Got out of the Campground after the long weekend to find that the dump-station was "FULL" (as in, they couldn't accept any more dumps..). On the way home stopped off to empty the trailer in a few places only to find they either weren't accepting non-campers dumping or their fees were extraordinarily high ($15-20.00 per dump). Brought the trailer home with full tanks. We're heading out again to boondock and needed to do something - sooo...out came the buckets. Grey water into the garden, black to the toilet in the house. Glad our rule is no 'solids' in the trailer, but that'll be the last time I do THAT. Time to buy a tote!

You need a macerator pump and dedicate hose.... I often pump into my basement floor drain...
