I liked my next door neighbor's system: he pulls inside via a 14X14 door, closes it, plugs into 50A, dumps his black and gray via a receptacle in the spotless epoxied floor.
Well, our entry is not exactly a straight-in, so we have to turn around and back in.
Plus, I wondered about dumping indoors.
So, I measured the distance from the front of my RV to the sewage discharge (modified from inside the plumbing bay to outside, beneath it), added two feet, and started digging.
It was simple, going down at a 45 degree angle and intercepting the house discharge pipe with a "Y" fitting.
I formed a concrete pad around the threaded end, and got a flush cap so that I can mow over the whole thing.
For flushing, an ag hydrant is about 15 feet away (non-potable garden water), fresh is available on the other side. Power is indoors.
So, when DW pulls in, I leap out and hook up, dump, disconnect the TOAD and do a blackwater tank flush while she extends the bedroom slide and unpacks. Then, the bus is turned around and backed into her bay.
Outbound, the freshwater fill is properly oriented (now the dump and flush hydrant is on the passenger's side of the RV), and the rig is positioned for dolly/TOAD hookup.
Pretty simple, and the dump station probably didn't cost $60 to create.
