There is a good reason for washing your hands after using the toilet and prior to leaving the room. If you rely on the kitchen sink for that, you end up with #$%& all over the bathroom door handle and in the kitchen area. I would rather live with tight quarters in the bath but be able to wash my hands before leaving.

I find the sink a handy place to keep a container of Wet Ones.

Ditto on that. One of the things that I didn't like in my Scamp 13 was the lack of a bathroom sink. I was so happy to get one in the 19. Well, to each their own.

Picture number 3 shows the upgraded stove vent that we purchased and gave to Reace. Also, just barely visible above the door is our 4G antenna. Orientation is 19 days, 20 hours, and 46 minutes, but who's counting?!?!!!
Gettin' down to the wire and looking good! We are excited for y'all and wish you many happy moments with your new baby I believe if you put your minds to it, you could probably host quite an event in your Escape. The days, hours and minutes are FLYING by and before you know it, orientation time will be over and you'll be on the road for a new adventure! May you have many happy times ahead!
Peace~

The stove vent is made by JR products. As far as the sink deletion, it's our build and we like it. We are concerned about germs like everyone else and will keep hand sanitizer in the bathroom at times. Problem solved and we have more room. Your mileage may vary.

Without a sink, you have no place to store the hand sanitizer, shampoo, body wash...
I had one of those suction cup bins, but it keeps falling on the floor, and the sink doesn't.

We had 2 different suction cup caddies and 1 mirror in the bathroom of our Casita and for over 3 full seasons and over 10,000 miles, not once did they fall on the floor. And yes, they even contained hand sanitizer. We are not concerned.
