I suppose that this could be a consideration...
A Flo-Jet portable is a couple of hundred dollars...

...But so is one of those 35 gallon "Dump tanks"!

Which one would offer more years of trouble-free service?

If you could realistically use either choice: which would you pick?

I have both. The flojet comes in handy when the blue boy isnt convenient to dump into due to location of rv or such, plus I dont like dragging a blue boy at a couple mile an hour for a distance to dump it, I have a hitch carrier I put the blue boy on and pump the tanks into it, then drive to the dump station and hook up the hose and just dump right from the carrier. Also the flojet is handy if you are in a place where you cant get the rv close enough to use a slinky. Not as fast to dump as a slinky but excellent in some situations, including if you have to pump up hill to a drain.

I think a lot depends on how you use your coach. If you have a 40 footer and you park for a week at a time, then the “caddy” makes more sense. If you have a 25 footer, don’t tow and only stay a couple of days at a time, then dumping every couple of days with a macerator system makes more sense - at least to me.

Thanks for the input on this!
You're right: the situation is what makes the call...
31 footer, and I have access to a sewer drain on my property... but it's about five feet higher than our driveway, and impossible to get the rig up to that level (Unless Lippert makes a model that I'm unaware of!)
We have power and water available by the drain also.
To drag a Caddy over to it would also be pretty easy: perhaps forty yards on level blacktop, and a small hill-climb on grass...

Given that circumstance: which one do you think might be handier?
Or perhaps more versatile?

Well, unless you are a lot younger than myself (61) I would be using my effortless pump lol. When we use to stay at our sons house, we had power and water but the sewer was on the other side of the house so we used about 75' of hose to pump it over there and is was a little up hill but not like yours. PLUS you can stay a lot cleaner I hate cleaning the slinky out.

Same age...

But I make up for it, with an excess level of immaturity!

I have a similar situation in my driveway. My Clean Dump hose reaches the sewer and it is enough uphill that a regular hose will not work. But, if I spent a lot of time in one place, the caddy would be more versatile. And I have another decade on you guys.

That DOES make good sense! The Caddy is handy if and when you've got it with you... but a macerator travels much easier...
Other than that: they both are pretty darn handy!
