Been using Member's Mark (Sam's Club) or Kirkland (Costco) for umpteen years. Those are the most economical, soft but sturdy enough to take the beating.

All others are either way too overpriced or feel like sandpaper.

You don't need all kinds of chemicals.....just water.

This is by far the best answer. Bar none.

The great toilet paper debate is solved! By a 9yr old girl.
Bottom line (no pun intended) buy and use whatever you want, just remember to add enough water with each flush to keep all solids completely covered, only dump when your tank is 3/4 or more full, and you'll never have a clog or blockage.

Charmin Ultra Soft for us. A quick disintegration test will tell you what'll work well and what may present issues.

We used to use Angel Soft, not any more they changed it.

I tested Geo Pacific two ply from Sam's Club...dissolves completely.

Most sit in a campground for a couple of days and then the owner dumps the tank and goes home.

A better test would be to put the paper in a jar, kinda wadded up with maybe some peanut butter on it to simulate having, well you know on it and then let the jar sit.
The tank will get agitated and stirred every time you flush.

That little bit of water is not going to agitate and stir the contents of the tank. The tank is sloped toward the outlet and 'everything' settles at the low spot. That's why a big blob of TP sitting in one place is a cause for stoppage. Using LOTS of water in the tank gives it an extra push out when dumping.

As per the video above, if you want to feel really good about it, conduct your own test, starting with the cheap stuff and work your way up, to find one that dissolves reasonably well.

I could care less about how a TP dissolves in water. What's important to me is that it is soft enough to protect my baby bottom and strong enough to take the abuse.

My black tank must be one of the specially built ones back in 2001/2 as it drains completely clear when dumped. I have never had any black or gray tank problems in over 14 years of full-time use.

Sam's Club and Costco are the only ones I will use.
