RVs are used by many people as houses on wheels. They can be driven anywhere and have amenities found in real homes such as a kitchen, a living room, bedrooms and air conditioning. One of the most practical RV accessories is the restroom, but an unfortunate part about that is having to empty and clean the waste tank. Getting a new waste tank with a high capacity and wheels to maneuver it around makes emptying it less stressful. Here are the best RV portable waste tanks and tote tanks of 2023.
