Best place to buy a portable gray water tank

I would like to buy a portable gray water tank for my Rockwood pop-up. I want to use to hook it up the drain on the shower in my camper. I'm probably looking at getting a 10 gallon tank. Where is the best place to buy one? I called a local RV dealer and they quoted me a price of $89. Can I find a better deal online?

I found Amazon.com has some good prices, some with free shipping. Barker seems to be a high quality unit, according to posts I've read. I'm looking for a 25-30 Gallon unit that can be towed to the dump station behind my RAM. My problem is keeping my speed down below 50 mph when towing it, oops, I meant 5 mph.

Two things,
A) where are you located. I have two 35 gal totes up in the rafters of my garage. Haven't used them in years. You can have your pick for free. I'm in eastern PA.
Actually the one was only ever used for potable water.
B) back when we had our popup I used a 5gal bucket with holes punched in the bottom.
We used eco-friendly shampoo/body wash & just let it leech out the bottom of the bucket.
I know there's a thread or two on the pros & cons of doing this, obviously you can tell what camp I'm in.

When we had a PUP we used jerry cans for the gray water.

Thanks

Thanks everyone for all your help. I think I might go with PPL Motorhomes. $67.34 seems like a resonable price for a 10 gallon tank.
