A lot if it depends on size of family and size of holding tanks in RV. That said, i like the 4 wheeled models the best. I have the 35? gal Barker(blue) tote(I know it has an actual name but forget).

The size of a tote tank really depends on your camping habits.If you need the capacity, the 4 wheel model is probably the best.
However let me give you the other end of the spectrum.I never boondock but I donít always have full hookups.There are only two of us and were rarely stay anywhere longer than a week.
That said, our black tank will last us a week.For the grey tank I purchased a 6 gallon water can (mark non-potable) at Walmart for about $10.Every day I fill it up and take it to the dump station.

Do not get one that you cannot easily handle in the dirt, rocks, hills and so on.
If you are going to fill it and lift it or hold it or dump it get a small one.

I have the Thetford, not sure if it is 27 or 35 gallon, but it does have 4 wheels and is towable. You just drop the handle over the hitchball and drag it to the dump station. In my opinion, it is mandatory to be towable, because it is hard to move when it has 30 or 35 gallons of water in it, especially if you have gravel site or roads.

I've got the 25 gallon tote n stor. This is also a 4 wheel model. Seems to work fine so far, although I should have settled on the 15 gallon.

Barker, IMO get the biggest one you can find. Less trips that way...

Have a 42 gallon Barker. Great tank. Wish I had gotten a smaller one because it's hard to pick up and store.
