Carrying a portable waste unit.

I purchased a 37 gallon portable waste unit and am trying to come up with some way to attach it to my Motorhome when I travel.

Any suggestions?

I know you don't want to hear it but 37 gallon is too big. Loaded, about 280 lbs. I have an 18 gallon and when full, it's hard to control. We made room in the basement in our old fifthwheel and in an unused bay on our MH.

Bungee it to the ladder (looks real nice) store it in a basement compartment, pack it in the toad or make a bracket to mount it on the roof.

I was thinking of having one of these also. My idea was to build a cage affair that would set on top of the rear bumper. I would be lockable for sure. Made of aluminum. I don't want to carry it inside a storage compartment. It would be easy to get to and easy to stow away.

I stored it in the toad on the way home from New Orleans, but no matter how well you drain it and wash it ou it leave an odor in the toad.

My basement storage is too small to store it there.

Which leaves strapping it to the ladder or the roof.

I believe attaching it to the ladder is the best option. just got to design a bracket to hold it in place.

I know its big but it has 4 wheels and the handle fits over the hitch on the towed so I can tow it to the dump station. works really well:

I have a 42 gallon. Yes, very heavy when full. If it's in a area where too difficult to handle/move when full, don't fill it full...

As for carrying on the motorhome. I have one of those simple and inexpensive racks to carry lawn chairs that hooks on the rear ladder. I can lift and hook the front wheels of the blue boy onto the rack, then lift and pivot the other end to vertical. A bungee cord at the ready keeps it there while I put two small cargo straps on it to make it very secure for travel.

a client left one here when they were having flooring installed. comes in handy for folks to use, as dump station is across the road.
I would never carry one, however

I've seen many 'Blue Boys' strapped to the rear ladders and it seems to be the most popular option. Our 35 gallon unit fit nicely in the front slide out bay. This thing is virtually unused. When we dry camp(which is not very often), we've found it easier to roll back the patio carpet and drive the RV to the dump station rather than go through 'the double dump drill'.

I was thinking of mounting a nice bench seat on it and giving 'kiddie rides' with it...but then there's that pesky liability thing.

Ok I don't really want to get into this fray but here goes! I boon dock every winter and have a 25 gallon waste tote, which I carry on my back ladder using a ' chair' carrier from CW. Here is my schedule which has been my norm over 10 years: black tank once a week, perhaps 15 gallons; grey tank twice a week. A 25 gallon tank is enough weigh for a old guy like me.
