Pick one of the popular brands available at CW or WW, they all work. Different people prefer one or the other, but they all will do the job about the same once you get familiar with them. The most important thing is to get one that you can handle. Approx.8lbs per gallon so the bigger ones provide for fewer trips to the dump station, but are heavier to handle. My happy point was at 25 gallons. Big enough to get the job done with only a few trips but still something I could drag [2 wheels] to the TV ball for the tow.

PS: I prefer the 2 wheel vs the 4 wheel. Have seen many of the 4 wheel models that have been reduced to 3 wheels when one cracks or falls off. 2 wheels works fine for me.

I like the Smarttote by Thetford. The LX versions are nice. They have a front wheel caster and the Drain hose is stored nicely. Some people have issues with a bit of water not draining, but I found I can get almost all the contents drain but maybe a liter . And they have a easy rinse feature.http://www.thetford.com/HOME/PRODUCT...5/Default.aspx

2 wheel Barker Tote-along for me. Mine is 22 or 25 gallons, don't recall specifically, but as Bassdogs says it's big enough to get the job done quicky yet small enough to maneuver, store and haul.

The 15 gal 2 wheel works for me. Never had a spill or any damage. It may take 2 trips to empty the tank but never had to do that.

We have a Thetford 27 gallon. Works good. We really don't use it for the black tank unless we have to. The 4 wheel tote tows great and drains good. Just one thing I have learned is when draining make sure the hose is fully pulled out and the tote is uphill from the dump. Had the tote for about 5 years so far.
