Cool Carrying tote tanks

Where and how do folks store/carry their waste water tote tanks while on the road? I have the Barker 32 gal. tote with the new style wheels and carrying it in the truck bed is kind of a pain.

I carry a 42 gal barker blue boy on rear ladder. Use one of those inexpensive lawn chair racks that slip over the ladder rungs. To get the blue boy onto the rack - lift steer wheels and hook over the rack, lift other end and pivot to vertical, temp secure with a bungee cord, lastly a couple cargo straps go around it to secure for travel. Pretty easy.

If your tank has the telescoping handle...it's easy to make a rack. You can attach it to the bumper or a ladder. The tank slides down over the upright and the quick release pin secures it. You can also use a locking hitch pin to secure it to prevent theft.

I have a Thetford 35 Gallon model. It fits nicely in the bed, between the hitch and tailgate.

I just saw a guy here at the RV park who strapped his to the Hide-a-Spare carrier next to tge spare tire under his 2015 Montana. I'll have to see if mine will fit like that.

Army,

^Thanks for the post. That's a great idea. I'll be trying that, also.

Can I ask what these totes are used for? What function do they serve? Thanks.

Rather than breaking camp to take the RV to dump, one drains the content of the grey and/or black tank into the tote. Then take the tote to dump.

Mine also goes in the truck bed along with the trailer spare. But if you have a shortbed, it might get full without that other 2 feet of room for 'things'. I considered a ladder bracket - but, IMHO, that looks really redneck with that big blue blotch hanging there on my fairly expensive (to me) mostly gray 5er

If your wife or someone you know sews you might consider having them make a cover which would slip over the tank to disguise it.
Just a thought.

I've seen several that are hung under the rv. As long as it doesn't extend lower than the axles its OK.
