Transporting black tank waste

Hi all,

I am currently parked in a location where no septic is available. I tried finding a company who pumps out portable bathrooms to see if they will pump the trailer however it is 50$ and they can’t say for certain that every Thursday they’d be able to do it.

Question is, is there a caddy I can use to fill up and tow behind my truck to a dump site? I would have to go on a 45mph road to get to it.

Is it even legal to do that is the other question.

I've never heard of one for that purpose. The portable tanks are just designed to pull to the dump station at a campground. The wheels would not hold up at that speed!

Right, I agree. The wheels are not adiqute for travel like that.

Is there any other types of options?

Put the tank in the back of a truck then use a pump to fill it.

If you installed a Sani-Con system I think that could pump the sewage into a container on a truck.

Or buy a 15 or 20 gallon tote and dump more often being careful to never overflow the small container. Two people should be able to lift it onto a truck.

I like the Sani-Con option better.

I have seen a setup using a macerator pump and a bladder in the back of a truck.

Rent a port-a-potty. They’ll service it.

I rented a holding tank from the Porta potty company. They put me on the service route and pumped it weekly. I think it was about $75 a month.
We lived in our 26' TT for 2 years while building our house. That was quite the adventure.

Hmmm this would be more of an ideal situation. I did not want to be messing around with filling an draining containers myself. I will have to call and see if they do this.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I did this for a family reunion and I remember it being $75/week. It was still worth it to me for this event.

So I called the local septic services companies. It looks like it would be 160$ a month to rent a tank an then they charge by the gallon to pump.

Seems a bit steep.

"septic", or Porta-potty? It makes a difference.

I was camping on my wooded rural property for a month a few years ago. Lucky I had a State Park with a dump station 9 miles away.

Check your local State Parks or other camp grounds for a dump station and tow your trailer there. I know this is not what you want to do but it works in a pinch.

Thinking outside the box - Forest River builds bathroom trailers with large holding tanks. I thought about buying one of those. When full tow it to the State Park dump station and dump the 150 gallon black tank and 150 gallon gray tank. $10 to use the dump station so you get more than your monies worth.
