That's a good idea, and looks good to.

I haven't yet bought a tote (so size/brand unknown), but sure would like to store the it "in the fresh air" when traveling. The TV is a pick-up with a low and tight locking cover, so that option I'd rather avoid - and I want to put the bikes there anyway. The TT has the Glacier package so the bottom is sealed; but perhaps a tote could be mounted on either the back bumper between the tire and ladder OR on the tongue on top of the batteries and behind the propane so it doesn't rub against the front of the trailer (perhaps using ratchet straps and a spider bungee) ~ still open to ideas. Y'all might also find the following solutions interesting:

Some folks will carry the empty tote in the back of the truck bed and fill it with one of those 12VDC mercerator pumps. Then tie off the fill hose high on the truck... Then head for the dump and let it gravity feed empty. Sure is an easy way to haul it to the dumps - no mess....

This what I do now. If you have larger holding tanks you won't be able to find a large enough tote so watch it. I don't let my tote get topped off I know it's going to take several trips any way. I have a Thetford and except for the elastic keepers breaking the only issue I've had is the front swivel Axle bolt get bent. Pulls by hand only on smooth hard ground when full. I tried to pull with Truck, can't see it and hard to go slow. Tried with ATV, can see it but still hard to go slow enough. With the Mascerator Pump you have to figure out longer power leads. When filling the tank and it's almost full, make sure you have the hose plug near by.

And yet another tote storage/transport solution are Barker's Tote-Along Brackets. My favorite still is the repurposed dolly!

I been thinking about building a waste tote rack myself. I read once where someone built a rack with a cheap hand cart U-bolted to the rear bumper. I've also considered getting a large Skid Tank but that would require me to carry it in a second pickup. Still considering no plans yet.
