For about $6, I bought a blue 7-gallon water container at Wally Mart. It just fits under the 3" drain and if you're on ground sloping the wrong way you can put a hose connector on your drain and lay the 7-gallon container on its side (the inlet is on the edge of the top, so you'll still get a good 5 gallons capacity in this mode). This container gets me through 95% of my days, including two showers and a couple of meal dishwashings. You can carry (slight struggle) it to the nearest grassy edge or away from the campsite, which makes the forest service happy...

Don't go overboard like I did. I thought WELL bigger is better and 42 gallon was only 10bucks more than 32,so why not. ITS BIG. ITs a BARKER. It fits cross wise in the truck,up on its edge so it really dont take up to much bed space. Its a 4 wheeler and can be pull by hand or on the ball of your hitch.Real nice Tote.Have used it a few times but it really dont need to be that big if you empty it every day.

Keep it small, We use a 10 gallon tank and empty more often. I want a tank that i can lift onto the tailgate of the truck. We boondock a lot and at times the distance to a dump station has been measured in miles, making towing the tank impossible. The one thing I will not do is haul the whole trailer to a dump station and then come back to the same site
