I got the Barker 42 gallon (https://www.amazon.com/Barker-30844-4-Wheeler-Tote-Tank/dp/B000OR18BE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1528248070&sr=8-1&keywords=barker+tank+42+gallon)

A bigger tank can do the same as a small tank and then some for a little more money. Sometimes I use it to just empty black water but mostly I empty black water and then grey water and since I use a flojet macerator to push it into my elevated truck bed, I also put plain water to clean the lines.

I highly recomend that tank and as recommended by people on here, https://www.amazon.com/Flojet-18555-000A-Portable-Macerator-Carrying/dp/B001HKZHIW/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1528248321&sr=1-1&keywords=flojet+macerator.

We LOVE our sewer bladder. I can move 100+ gallons of gray or black water at a time. We user our camper like normal when we don't have sewer hookups- showers, laundry, let the kids do dishes, you name it. No stress.

'Course there's a few folks that refuse to use their holding tanks. Cheap way to solve the problem I guess... [emoticon]

If you think you'll only need one occasionally, another option is using a CG's honey wagon service if they have one. Usually they're only available once or twice a week tho.

We have an 18 gal. Thetford and only use it once or twice a year at most. No problem being smaller and it's easy to toss into the back of the truck. Rather have a Barker but the Thetford was on sale for cheap at the time. When you need one of these things, they're sure nice to have.

One issue with these things is storage. The big ones are hard to stash somewhere and don't exactly look pretty lashed to a ladder at the back. Some have use a BAL hide-a-spare carrier or a similar DIY version. 18 gallons is just light enough that the two of us can hoist it into the truck and not have to tow it.

If we were to need one on a regular basis, I'd def. be looking at a bladder and macerator pump. Hmm, maybe a person could offer your own honey wagon service in a CG and make a few extra bucks! [emoticon]

We purchased an RV Portable Waste Tank for home use when we needed to clean out our septic system. This is one of the smoothest rolling tote buckets I've ever used. I like its 3-inch conventional drain valve because it makes the tank easier to use and more reliable. I don't have to worry about lifting the jar to empty it. If you're going on a long road trip, I recommend choosing a 42-gallon tank capacity. I've never had that problem with the Barker 42 Gallon Tote Tank, and I've been using the same model for over 5 years now.
