Many thanks for all your replies.
I visited my local caravan/ motorhome centre today and showed him a picture of the waste water "exit valve".
He said it would be almost impossible to find a suitable fitment as he has the same valve on his.
He said their family use the campsite showers,use their washing up facilities etc...with the small amount of waste water they accumulate,he just carries a 30 litre container,funnel and short hose and every 2 or 3 days just drains a container full and empties in the grey waste area.
Sounds like a good idea and think I may try it.
Will try to post a picture of the waste outlet.

A bucket (perhaps one of the collapsible ones) is useful to have on board. I made sure mine fits under the grey water outlet.

I also carry a couple of those floppy gardening buckets, as they are useful for shampooing and rinsing my dog.

The floppy buckets fit together closely, the rigid bucket goes inside those, and my hoses fit around the bucket, along with some rags, a sponge and other odds and ends. There never seems enough room for all the stuff so one needs to be a bit inventive.

I'm daft and proud of it.

Yes, I've a sort of floppy bucket with 2 handles - got from a Chinese bazzar in Spain. I cut out a notch so that it sits under the outlet.

Yes,ive purchased a black waste cotainer with inlets on both top and side.
Im very lucky with storage,our motorhome(bought it 4 days ago)came with a Fiamma Ultra Stoe 360 box which fits on bike rack.
It looks very big but im sure it will come in handy for all those bits and bobs.
(Apparently they are about 500 brand new)
If it proves to be a bit too big after a few trips,I may sell it and buy a made to measure lightweight aluminium box which ive seen on a well known auction site

Just beware of overloading the rear axle.

Or the entire MH.
