Portable Holding Tank for Transfering

I tried a search, but didn't get any hits.

I'm looking for one of those portable tanks that you can dump your holding tank into and then put it in your pickup and take to a dump station. I know I can find one, and I'm going to do a google right after I post this.

But if any have one, I'd appreciate your feedback on the one you have, or where you've seen a good selection or some good ones online. Or where I can find some feedback already posted somewhere.

Thanks!

If you type "portable grey water tanks" into ebay you get a list of a few tanks that seem to fit your description. Check out the listings and get some manufacturer names and google those names. I do this frequently. I'll look on ebay and get descriptions and manufacturers and google it until I find exactly what I want.

That's a good idea. I need one for black water, but the technique works either way, and will likely be the same manufacturers, if they are different products in the first place.

So far, I've only found replacement holding tanks for permanent installations. But I know I've seen these things before.

Check out ebay item(s)....I included the item numbers incase the links don't work. There is a way to look up the item by the number if the link gets messed up. I hope these are what you are looking for.

Yep, that's them exactly. I don't know for the life of me why they didn't come up in my search, as I had those key words in there. But anyway...

Now, does anybody have feedback (or know of some) on their usage?

I know I'll want at least as big as the one on my trailer, so that it'll hold the rinse water as well.

Look for "Tote tanks". See Link below

Any RV dealer or parts supplier in your area should have them, or can get them from "Coast Distribution".

We bought ours from a RV dealer, here in Canada they are in no shortage also they run about $75 for the larger one Cdn. (Here there called honey wagons)We have had ours for about 8 years with no problems, it is used weekly during the season. They can be a chore to haul if it is full, sometimes you have to dump twice. I bought a handle that fits under the tank and hooks onto the hitch of your vehicle, it maybe something to look at also or to purchase one that you can pull as in previous link, it will pay off in the end.

feedback

sorry if I sound negative, but I have that Blue one, the caps dont stay on, plastic cracks, wheels are really cheap, used durring season to transport across campground, what a PITA, I am a big guy and hard to roll when full, as mentioned, I opted for a larger holding tank supplied by those porta -pottie people, its called santi-pot in this area, but the porta-jon guys also have them, make yourself a little cart and they will either sell or RENT for 3 months of the summer, was $ 32 delivered and picked up and the guy even sucked it out with the pump truck for me when they picked it up....just an option

Yeah, that's definitely the way to go. We bought the blue one, the 25-gal. and it IS heavy. There'd be no lifting of the "crap" into the back of the pick-up! But it does get the job done and we'll try to store it out of the sun's rays to get some life out of it. I'm more in favor of hitching it up and driving to a real dump station! FWIW, we bought it from PPL Motorhomes (from Texas) in an eBay "Buy It Now."
