This is a very nice tank, it holds 27gal and is very portable. The problems with this are the emptying. You have to pick it up to get it to empty but it never gets empty, even with riggerous shaking and rinsing. The hose has a rubber band type thing holding it in place and it died rather quickly and the hose drops down. It does tow behind the car nicely and is easy to pull. Be sure you are downhill to empty, otherwise you will be lifting lots of weight.

Tote is worth buying and a good price

We have used it just once. It pretty much does what it is supposed to do. We like it and recommend it. We use it for our pop up camper so our drain is a standard size grey water hose (not 3 inch) that we connect to the smaller connection (threaded water inlet fitting) using a hose to hose connector. This is because the tank is designed to connect a hose the other way to that connector to flush out the tote. The problem we encountered, not a big deal but something to be aware of, is that once connected and draining the large dump valve must be partially opened to allow air to escape. It is also challenging to completely empty the tote. But not a big deal either. In summary it is worth it. The sale price is a good one,after comparison shopping, and camping world a good place to deal with. Prior to buying this tote we drained into an old 5 gallon spackle bucket. Now THAT was a pain!

We just got a popup & were draining into a bucket until we found this great deal. This makes it way easier. Does what it's supposed to do & is easy for one person to dump. Seems to be well made.
