    I have a jerry can (approx 20l) with both tip and side openings for running grey waste into but, at about 200mm, it's a bit high to fit under the grey outlet pipe unless the van is up on the Milenco ramps. I really need one about the same capacity but that is no more than about 180mm deep.

    I've been Googling this afternoon and found the sort of thing I need in the CAK Tanks catalogue "WWC20S - Portable slide under waste tank with 100mm filling cap in side. Can be
    used with optional WWTHOSE. Sizes L x W x H mm 435 x 290 x 165mm".

    Trouble is that CAK Tanks (surprise, surprise) don't have any in stock and don't know when they might get any more.

    O'Leary's and other places I've looked at don't seem to have anything similar. Anyone know of anything suitable?

    Seriously, I did have one of those grey waste containers on wheels. It was quite flat and if you had a very low van you could always put a piece of hosepipe on the outlet and feed it into the tank which was left away from the van. I stopped using it after reading another thread :Doh:

    Just cut your old one down to size:winky:










    or you could do the same as we do and run a flexible pipe into it ...... It won't fill it right up but at least it's not too heavy to carry

    Thanks. It was one of those I was really looking for but didn't know the manufacturer. No wonder I couldn't find them if they are discontinued ::bigsmile:

    We use a Wastemaster as used by countless tuggers like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wastemaster-38-Litres-Caravan-Motorhome-Waste-Water-Container-/261217248013
    you can pick them up for a tenner at car boot sales.
    I got a bit of flexible domestic waste pipe and a short piece of plastic domestic waste pipe (40mm?) which slips over the waste outlet on my Rapido and drops into the lower of the two input ports on the Wastemaster. Works a treat.
    Gets a lot of admiring glances from the French as you wheel it to the borne with your Thetford cassette safely attached by a couple of bungies.

    Likewise wastemaster Graham, a left over from tugging. It fits nicely in the box provided for the spare wheel, right alongside it, and the only things likely to be contaminated are the spare and the tiles to go under the wheels.
    Strangely, even after a fortnight in France in hot weather, it did not smell after use. We don't let waste into it via a hose, after a couple of days I drain the waste tank into it and take it for emptying if I cannot get to a drive over drop point. It does get cleaned/ disinfected when we get home.

    Well. If no one else is going to say it I will...

    I have a grey water container that fits under my van at all times and under all circumstances.

    It is quite large and has a huge capacity.

    The Earth.

    Thanks all. Found one at Rainbow Conversions which should do the job.

    I had two custom tanks made for my self build by this guy.
    http://www.tank.me/

    Excellent service. He makes the tanks himself. I have two under my van...

    Very good prices as well. Worked out a lot cheaper than I expected.
