Does the Toad have a hitch?

Dumping every day doesn't bother me one bit. I dump both the black and gray water. I don't leak the gray onto the ground like some folks do.
We don't waste water but in 80+ degree days I'm not going to suggest to anyone skipping days showering.
Dumping daily keeps the tanks cleaner and stink free. It also makes the portable tank easier to handle.
Besides, if you saw how much beer we consume in four days you might understand. LOL

We have a 27 gallon grey tote which fits in the right rear storage on our 30 ft BSS. It does have a hose connection for flushing out, but we only use it for grey water so any left over smells are minimal. We had Uhaul install a small hitch on our toad ( Chevy Sonic ) for the express purpose of towing the tank to the dump. I have seen many instances where people have mounted it to the ladder. If you do this make sure it is well secured. You might want to get one of the ladder mount bike racks to support the tank, then use several bungee cords to secure the tank to the ladder. I think I have one I'm willing to part with.

Oh, you can't do that. It keeps the solid waste down to a minimum.

One thing I'm going to suggest that you may or may not be already doing is maxing out your black water tank. We added an extra bayonet mount dump valve (about $15.00) onto the fitting that our dump slinky attaches to so we can close that valve, and open the grey and black water valves to share storage between them. We found our black tank was usually only about 1 quarter full when our grey tank was already full. By adding the extra valve and being able to share the tanks we've about doubled the days before dumping.

I wouldn't be comfortable with that arrangement. The outlet for my gray water tank is smaller than the black water tank as I think most are. The smaller line could become clogged with solids and then what do you do?
I will stick to my plan as it works well for me.

We just left Florida. We stayed at Big Lagoon State Park for part of our trip. My first time camping without sewer hookups. With 2 adults and 2 kids, we quickly needed a portable tank. We ended up finding a 32 gallon tank at Carpenter's Campers in Pensacola. It was $325, and they were very helpful, even assembling it for us. We did not plan on this tank being part of our gear, but fortunately, we were able to put it in the bed of my toad (Toyota Tacoma). We carried it all over Florida and back to Mass. We also have a cargo rack at home that we could use to haul it without the toad.
