Look up "pool backwash hose" for a cheaper solution.

Go to Home depot and at the order desk order a 50 foot roll of 2 inch pool drain hose.
Hose

Once your order is complete go into the store and buy:

A 64 qt plastic storage container. This is your funnel. Container

Some threaded ABS fittings. Link 1 and Link 2

A tube of caulking

If needed go to Harbor Freight and buy a hole saw kit. Hole Saw


Very carefully drill a 2 inch hole in the end of the container near the bottom. If you press too hard the container might crack. Use a boatload of caulking and screw the two fittings through the hole in the container. Now let the caulking dry for a couple of days while you're waiting for the drain hose to arrive.

For use: Place the storage crate under the drain on the trailer. Attach the drain hose to the fitting using the included hose clamps.

If the hose will not fit over the fitting you might have to buy a short piece or 2 inch pipe and glue it into the fitting. Then attach the Pool drain hose to the fitting. Pipe and some PVC glue PVC glue

When finished disconnect the hose and hang it from a tree or something outside to drain dry. Then roll and store the hose. Put the storage container in a corner somewhere.


Exactly what I was thinking. Cheap tub to catch the water and add a hose to drain it.

Curious if the OP ever solved the issue.
