Re: Which is cheaper?

Since you included a shower I would suggest a dig is better. The shower floor would need to be raised enough to feed into the toilet tank for pumping. Do you have enough head room for that? Sink should be fine either way.

Re: Which is cheaper?

Cheaper isn't always better. Personal preference for me would be the pit. When I see a raised floor for drainage I think 'short cut'. But either way would work fine.
