If you have to do it I'd tow it at walking speed. Small wheels, no suspension, really not meant for much more. Especially with 300 or so pounds of liquid waste on board.

They did not have a dump station and had to drive down to the lower campground. How far is too far to pull a tote? I have had to pull mine 1/2-3/4 of a mile and didn't like going that far with it.
It will take a while going that far at around 5mph. I'm surprised no one has mentioned the bladders you put in the bed of your pickup. The only downside is you need a pump to fill it. The upside is get 2 and use one to haul fresh water.

I see people hauling butt with these things. Iím like dang did you even pay attention to anything going on behind you.

Kinda like the IDIOTS and yes these are. Going 10-15-20 MPH through the campground with kids everywhere. Last trip I made a dude must have came through 10 times that I saw. Finally a less patient camper gave him some driving instructions

I was going very slowly thru the campground last week and a toddler ran into the road. I stopped with no problem and here comes mama running after him, she waved thank you. You never know.

Maybe I am naive, but I think the great majority of campers are pretty good people. I also think it is the park visitors that ďdonít know/care about the rulesĒ and of course the drunks.
