I believe ours is 22 gallons. We have had it for 4 summers now and this is the first summer we have used it. We have never had to use it for the black tank but we did for the gray tank. We ordered it over the internet, but I don't remember from where.

Our underbelly is enclosed so we cannot see tanks. May I ask why some of you do not use your totes for black water?

I can't either, can you explain Labzy?

We don't mostly because we can easily go 3-5 days on the black tank's capacity and dump it on the way out. Not the same with the gray, with the showers, kitchen, and bathroom sink water going into it it fills rather quickly.

However, I wouldn't have a problem empting the black tank into the tote. It has a flushing connection on the top for a throughout cleaning inside. Empty it, flush it, add your preferred black tank chemical/sanitizer into it and you're all set (to do it again!)

The two of us can go days, before we even get close to filling the black tank. We've gone on numerous trips before we decide to finally to dump the 25 gallon tank.
We do have a 15 gallon Barker tote, for the gray tank, when dry camping.
Barker is the most recommended brand.

We do not dump our black tank till we leave the cg .
since we do not fill the black tank up before leaving .
my new camper has 3 grey water tanks and one black tank so it takes a loooooong time for me to fill up . 120 gallons of grey 42 gallons of black.
but on my old camper we had a 42 gallon grey and black and never filled them full with 5 kids and two adults in three days of camping .
I thought we would fill up fast so I bought the portable tank and ive never filled it up enough before the weekend was over.
