Portable gray water tank disposal

Fairly new to RV'ing here and I guess without really planning it, so far we've always picked campgrounds where we can hook up our sewer lines directly from our TT to an individual hook up at our site.
Until this last week that is. . . we didn't even realize we didn't have our own sewer line until we got there. Fortunately, we camped with friends and were able to use their portable gray water tote to empty our 40 gal gray water tank.
now we are obviously in the market for one of our own

any recommendations? I'm looking at a Barker 15 gallon one but would appreciate any opinions from fellow rv'ers.

Thanks!

Thetford Smart tote. Easy to use and they have a 35 gallon...it gets a little heavy when it's full but it's worth the pull to make less trips.

Barker 42 gallon I have. The new ones have ball bearing metal wheels and pneumatic tires. Very robust and rolls easy. Yes, heavy when full. If on uneven or rough ground, don't fill it full.

Get a 4 wheel version. I started with two wheeled version (half the price of thetford)and after two seasons i thought i was gonna hurt my back. The thetford smart tote is easier to use and maneuver. Both 35gal. If I had to buy again it would be smaller. It is easier to store and move around when full. Btw, with our family of 4 using the trailer for showers, etc we emptied it daily.

Keep in mind that you need to have a place to store whatever size you choose to get. Large enough to empty a full tank is good, if there is room to carry it with you. In addition, it can be used to empty the black tank as well. If you do not have room to carry one that holds as much as your waste tanks, make sure that you get one that has a level indicator so that you can shut the dump valve before it is completely full, leaving you with a full sewer hose and no place to empty it!

I purchased the Thetford 35 four wheel. Love it ! Empties the gray fully and then I empty the black fully. After that we're usually set for 3 to 4 days. I remember my wife and I being afraid to "overuse" the bathroom for fear of filling the tanks. Not anymore.

Plus "3" on the Thetford 35 gallon. Four wheel with fill indicator and self storing hose is great!
