Sewer tote

I have a 42 gallon barker 4 wheel sewer tote. I would like to mount it on the bumper of my TT. Problem is that I can only find the racks that fits up to a 36 gallon tote.
I am thinking also about buying a cargo rack. I know it won't lay flat so I'll have to prop up the one side and use a ratchet strap. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

You might try one of the local fabricators in your area who could make you a rack or rework the rack for the 36 gal tote just something to consider.

I've picked up a dozen or so from the side of the road, one even had a ladder attached. Be sure whatever you choose will keep it attached even when bouncing across rough RR tracks. I throw mine in the back of the truck but not everyone can do so.

Got the 42 gal. Barker. The Camco bumper tote carrier fits it perfectly.
It is well made. I used pool noodles to cradle the tote.
Btw, if you're new to the Barker, be aware any liquid even an ounce inside will super heat in the sun and cause the Barker to expand to the point where the solid rear axle gets pushed out of its attachment. It can be reinserted but you risk losing it on the road if your unlucky.
Drill a hole in a garden hose end cap and replace the fill bobber with it for traveling.

Must be a popular rv route and a crappy section at that. Seriously though, I have very little in the truck bed, so just carry it there. Never was too keen on the ladder tote supports.

Well, that's over 30 years of driving. I keep mine in the bed as well.
