Which Portable Holding Tank

I am looking at getting a portable holding since we will be at a campgroup in mid July for a week without sewer and I only have 30 gallon tanks. I was wonder which is better the Barker Tote-Along or the Thetford SmartTote LX. Only thing that I see about the Thetford is that it looks like the hose it made onto the tank and is not replaceable.

Barker (the blue tote), I did much research when we bought ours and all info found and reviews said the Thetford tanks tend to spilt at the seams.

I also did a bit of comparison shopping and the Barker won out.
