I bought a 15gal Barker off Craigslist for $40.
It works fine for my small 165 Sport.
I seen a couple different sizes on there.

Worth a look on your local site.

The barker might be a little lower profile then my tote-n-store(not sure) which is good for our low riding jayfeathers. I know we have to lean our tote on an angle or it won't drain out of the hose when done filling. Something you might consider jepotts.

Not a bad price. Bought mine (22 gal) from PPL 4 years ago for $105. Fits in the basement of our White Hawk, though it does occupy a fair amount of space since the clearance is too low to store it on its side. No matter, it ain't hangin' off the ladder and when I need it, it's a breeze to use.

I wish these things had soft tires with suspension. They make a lot of noise going down the road hitched up to my truck.

I heard on some forums were people have switch over to air tires but i suppose you'd have to change out the axle.

I put air tires on my barker, there is a write up here on the forum somewhere about it. It's pretty easy and you are right about the noise the hard tires make.

I also switched out the tires and axle for Pneumatic tires. Got the axle stock from the hardware store and the tires from Harborfreight.

Waste Tote carriers

Yep, same here. Replaced my hard tires with pneumatics I found at either Menard's or Tractor Supply, can't remember which. You'll have to cut new axles from bar stock and put new caps on the axles to keep the tires on. Takes a little bit of work but the results are well worth it. My 45 gallon Barker hardly makes a noise going across the Oshkosh campground on a 1am stealth dump run the night before we leave. Nothing like driving by the dump stations next morning and feeling sorry for all the RVs lined up for hours on their way out
