How do you transport your portable waste tank?

Looking to see where you all place your portable waste tank for transport?

Have been thinking of being able to transport it without it being in the bed of the truck. Maybe something like a hitch hauler on the rear bumper?

Do you have a ladder? Hang it on there, buy or make a bracket for the handle.

When we are up north in Michigan, I put my 42 gal blue boy in the bed of my truck. I then use a macerator pump hooked up to the trailer battery to power it and then pump out the black tank that way. When I get to the dump site, it is "all down hill from there"!

If your trailer doesn't have an enclosed belly, you could make a hinged bracket to tuck the waste tote up inside the frame. Use a pin on the curb side for a quick release.

Somewhere here in JOF there is a couple page thread (I think it was) about transporting a waste tote.... I'll see if I can find it and link it...

Thanks for the replies. I do not have a ladder, and the underside is fully enclosed.

I have the 25 gallon tote n store that I am looking for alternative ways to transport.

Google bumper mounted tote tanks. I am not saying it's the best option, just look for ideas.

I mount mine underneath with aluminum angle iron, but have clearance to do so.

I rarely carry mine. I put it in the bed of the truck, but you do not have a Pickup, and I do not blame you for not wanting it in the truck or in the TT. But I have heard of people putting in their shower for travel.
I have seen them strapped to the top of the square bumper, I saw a really nice homemade bracket that was bumper mount once. Unfortunately I was drive down the highway as they passed me. I have seen them strapped to the tongue and propane tank brackets. Those two would be my first options. Add a 2” receiver hitch and procure a cargo tray.

Below is a picture of what I did with our TT.
I built a bumper mount holder out of an old bike rack.

Hope this triggers some ideas.

So much for those ideas!!! Lol

Depending on the dimensions, what about a rack for a back pack leaf blower??? Maybe that would work mounted to the bumper??? I would suggest to consider reinforcing the bumper.

Or as mentioned, frame mounted hitch with a cargo tray out back of the trailer. Or a front mounted hitch on the tv with a cargo tray.

Good luck figuring out what will work best for you!!!
