We looked into the 35 gallon and decided the 27 gallon was the right size for us so this review will be based on that tote. We’ll discuss our reasons why later

CONS TO THE THETFORD TITAN
Large size makes it difficult to travel with.
The weight of the tote concerns me and would rather not test my ladder. I think this is a personal problem as I see others attached to RV ladders and they are traveling fine.
The green hose storage lid and strap seems a little flimsy
The weights on Amazon don’t make sense but I listed them as they are shown.

RECOMMENDATION - THE 27 GALLON 4 WHEEL
We’ve had other totes in the past and they’ve broken down too soon for the price of the product. Based on our time with the Titan tote we’ve noticed that they have improved the hose and connection to the tote. Even though the green lid is a little weak the rest of the tote is well made. We recommend the 4 wheel 27 gallon if you have room because it is the middle size and easily pulled by hand. The two wheel option would be more difficult to move by hand. We also chose this size because it fit nicely between the tailgate of our truck and the bicycles we also load in the truck. You really need to consider how you are going to use these portable waste tanks and how you are going to travel with them. Also consider the size of your RVs tanks when you purchase the tote. Ours are 40 gallons, so we pay attention to empty our tanks before they are full so we don’t have more than our 27 gallon will hold.

Another use if you have a septic tank at home is to empty your waste into your home tank. Our tank is too far away from the driveway so we can use the portable waste tank to empty the rv then dispose of the waste into the house septic system. This can be done by adding a rise to your house tank.
Finally, and most important, our experience with Thetford customer service has been great. They are busy but, when I left a message they called me back by the end of the day. Becky and Kelly were amazing on the phone and helped us with a warranty claim on another product. I know that if we have questions or issues with the Titan tote, Thetford will be there to back their product.
