I use 42 gal barker and flojet pump.Tank stays in back of truck. Better than towing. Have 100' 1" hose. Sometimes I am close enough to a site that has sewer I can "bum" a dump from neighbors.

That's my plan. I actually have a buddy who built a 140 gallon collapsible water bladder that he folds up between uses.

Pump it up, gravity it down.

If you plan to tow it, be sure to get a tote with pneumatic tires. We have a 32 gal. tote but our tanks are 38 gal. I felt the 42 gal. was just too big for storage so I dump when we get to 2/3 full. For a one week stay we usually only need to dump the gray tank once, maybe twice. We mostly use the campground's comfort station when we don't have full hookups. I'd rather not use the tote for the black tank. The gray water can be stinky enough when it's time to rinse out the tote!

If you are careful you can go a while without dumping. We have been able to go 7 or 8 days before needing to dump.

I think the OP has made his choice, but I just want to add my opinion. First, I hope it's not legal to dump gray water on the ground in any state - it's not water, but wastewater, and has plenty of chemicals, colorants, and pH inconsistencies.

My wife and I can go 4 days with a 40 gal black tank, and 2 - 40 gal gray tanks. That's with cooking all meals with the necessary cleanup, along with satisfactory, quick baths and showers. I have the smallest tote, and use it maybe once in a couple of years. I always carry it and it fits in a small space. I can see plenty of advantage of having pneumatic tires, but my compromise suits me fine. I can lift it onto my truck, or tie it to the hitch for a longer distance.
