Looking at a Northstar 12 STC truck camper with the canister system for black water. Has anyone one her used one of these? Not sure if it is an advantage or disadvantage. Capacity is around 4 gallons and then has to be emptied. Yes you can probably empty in most any toilet anywhere. I am thinking that you still need to have a place to go and empty your grey water so there is little advantage to the cassette/canister systems. wink.gif

We aren't long time campers, we have a Northstar adventurer with the cassette for black water. Several weeks ago we stayed at a state park, and on Sunday afternoon there was a "conga line" of folks to get to the dump site, we just stopped at the rest area and emptied the cassette. The gray water isn't quite as big a problem. It is at worst dish water, hand washing such like that and we have been known to just drain that water on our lawn when we get home. I suppose it could be drained into any reasonable area.

So, I think the cassette system makes sense for us. Gray water isn't a major issue.

Our biggest complaint about our camper is that it has a black tank and not a cassette. So much more convenient and easy to dump a cassette than a black tank. If you always stay in a campground with a dump station that doesn't get crowded then maybe a black tank is better. But for us we like to go to remote/primitive campgrounds, or just boon docking. Until I installed a sewer access in our driveway we always had to find a dump station on the way home and we still have to add "dumping" to the list of chores after a trip. Funny, if you go to Europe, where RV's are very popular, they are almost all equipped with cassette toilets.
