That is an interesting unit. Kinda makes you think about building a small custom unit.

For our trailer I think we will stick with a more traditional set up

islandr, we have a pull-out spray faucet. I hate to tell you that it is fine and then the next thing it leaks. When I have used the spray, which is rarely, it drips for a moment or two and then stops. Knock on wood. No telling how long the faucet will be okay but it has been so far.

Thanks for the pic Cathy

We like the look of the single post style of faucets as well. We don't think we choose a pull out model as the sink is not large enough that the spray can not get every where. Still shopping around to find one with a high arch that has enough reach. There are some bar faucets that have a nice arch but they do not have the reach.

I have a few more days of internet shopping for faucets, some good quality fixating time.

Weather is kinda grey here today so Ellen and I are heading down to an upholstery shop to check out choices there.

Be careful about the "reach." The best faucet, when turned on, will have the water go straight down the drain. If it misses the drain, you'll end up with "splash." These sinks are shallow in comparison to home sinks.

Thanks for the link to Phoenix. I didn't know that they were a supplier.

As I mentioned above, I am going to keep looking for a faucet with a smaller "footprint" on the counter. Similar to the one Cathy showed us. The challenge is to keep costs and the units scale reasonable. We don't need a nicer faucet in the trailer than we have in the house.

Our Trailer is in Production - It was hard to wait for this notification

Exciting times for Ellen and I. The email came with the first pictures of production for delivery March 18th. The options we chose make it possible to camp both at Provincial/National Parks (no hook ups) and those state parks with hook ups.

We chose custom laminate for the counters and table top, fabric for the U-shaped dinette and a different kitchen faucet.

These are the options we chose from the Escape list:

Stainless Steel Stove, Sink, and Rangehood - just some inside bling
6.3 Cu Ft Fridge - won't have to bring coolers when lots of beverages needed
Two Way Water Heater - quieter than gas fired when power available
Window Above Sink - more light

Double Insulation / Dual Pane Windows - hopefully warm / less condensation
Spray Foam Insulation Underneath (deleted heat pads) - warm floors in fall
120V Wall Heater - quiet heat when hooked up / no cube heater underfoot
(Built in Electric Heater)

Dual 6V Batteries - lots of capacity for camping with no power
Interior LED lights - lights at night with less worrying about power
Pre Wire for Solar - presently I have a portable 60 watt Solar Panel
Surge Protector - your tales of campground wiring scared me
Removable Power Cord - one less hole in trailer / tidier coil of wire for storage

Aluminum Wheels - outside bling / and corrosion resistant
Bike Rack Ready - build it and they will come (making it easy to bring bikes)

So that is the list and some of the reasons for the choices we made

33 more sleeps till the big day
