Default Installed sink and grey water tank

Simple but should serve it's purpose.Next will be a pump and faucet and fresh water tank that will sit next to the grey tank.

Simple but lots of B campers don't need more than that.
If the gray water jug has a vent cap (like a gas container) it would speed up the draining.

Yes the jug has a little plug for venting.I will get identical jug for fresh if Wally World still has it.

Walmart - I knew I had seen those containers but couldn't remember where.

I had been looking online at portable sinks like this - http://www.lowes.com/pd_356714-25344-PS ... Id=3578828
These things start at over $1,000 and go to more than $2,500.
They add in a 110v water heater (probably instant) but anyone with DIY skills can make one for way less.

Portable sinks and Porta Potti's aren't for every situation but they demonstrate the DIY route to a camper van can be had relatively easily and inexpensively.

Here is the mostly finished project.I had to add framing to give more support.The bungee you see ( and will be replaced with a strap of some sort) is for extra support.the real bungee that holds the jugs goes around the back post and through the handles.There is also a rubber mat below the jugs that should curtain slipping.I put the handle on the front of the sink to reduce the temptation to use as a grab handle.The whole cash outlay was under $100.Using scrap lumber and buying a second hand sink for $25 helped keep the cost down.The hand pump was $30 from Camping World.The jugs were $10 a piece from Wally World.Plumbing and water line cost $13 from local hardware.All ideas welcomed.

That strap looks strong and easy to undo to get the jugs out.

For making a permanent strap I sometimes use 1/8" x 1/2" x 3' aluminum metal strips. Easy to bend and shape to what you need. Easy to drill.
Your idea looks better for easy access to remove the jugs though.

For strapping of that type, I really like the quick release, but adjustable, nylon webbing like they use on backpacks and roof racks. It is wonderful stuff and very easy to use.

That strap has a very quick release and easy to tighten as well. I can't remember where I got them.
