Traveling with Thetford smart tote

We just purchased an 18 gallon Thetford smart tote. Does anyone have suggestions on how to fasten it to a HW27SC camper? While in Alaska last week I saw one attached to a motor home but didn't have the opportunity to check it out. Hopefully we can do the same with our pop up.

Also, how easy is it to attach to trailer hitch for hauling to dump site in campground?

Thanks for any help,

Bonnie

I store mine on the roof ladder.
Of course that only helps if you have one.

Turbs, I forgot to say it is a high wall pop up camper. But, seeing how easy you strapped it on the ladder, I'm sure it could be strapped somewhere as Wiscampsin suggested.

We too live in Wisconsin between Madison and Milwaukee. I don't have the unit outside now to check out possibilities. Jerry's Camping World has had it for a month while we were in Alaska to add a "Y" connection for the gray and black water so we only have one opening like the big boys have. We rented motor homes in Alaska and got accustomed to one opening and now don't want to move tubing back and forth on the pop up.

I'm wondering if the hitch area would accept it as well?

We'll check out that area when the camper comes back home! I'm just happy to know that fastening it on the camper is a possibility.

Where between Madison and Milwaukee do you live? We're in the township of Ottawa in western Waukesha county. We purchased a pup from Jerry's in Madison back in 2004, great people IMHO.

On our last camper I rested it on the rear bumper and installed boat cleats on the back wall of the camper. I worked it out the the inside ended up in a cabinet and just used large fender washers on the inside. Couple of bungys outside and we were all set.
