I agree I was going with the stainless thinking it would be better but have changed my mind. Good thread.

Could someone measure the depth of their sink. Either SS or white so we can gauge whether this will matter for us?

Can they or will they put in a bigger sink? It just seems a little small.

You might inquire what they could do, but keep in mind it might take away from either counter space or cabinet space underneath.

I was planning on the SS sink since I wanted the stainless cooktop. But now you have me wondering - in the picture the SS sink looks really narrow. Is that just an illusion and is it as wide as the white one? I can live with the depth but if I can't fit a dinner plate flat in it I would be unhappy! Anyone have any idea? I'm calling tomorrow as it's time to finalize my build. (Excited)

We have the standard white, and no staining. We sometimes leave the kettle in it if it's half full of water, and were worried that it might chip the white. We put a bit of rubbery stuff in the bottom when we're storing the kettle there and it hasn't chipped. Our trailer is a bit less than 18 months old, and we've spent about 4 months in it.

I might consider not having a cook top in exchange for a larger sink. I prefer to cook outside. Could have a sandwich or cereal if the weather wouldn't let me cook outside. I just feel that all our fabrics absorb the cooking odors. I've only camped in a trailer a few times and after bacon being cooked that was all I smelled ever time I entered the trailer. So I really don't want to cook in it. I just want a comfortable bed and a bathroom with AC.

When it is pouring rain and blowing, you'll appreciate being able to heat up wieners and beans inside the trailer.

All these questions about sink and cooking was one of the reasons I reversed the stove and sink in my Escape 19', I put the stove next to the door, closer to the MaxxFan and the door ventilation. I also added an opening window in the kitchen and deleted the range hood. I did not want cooking back by the bed. with this arrangement, everything was fine. I would not delete the stove because you need one in the winter or rain. That said, the issue of the sink is split. The plastic can chip and stain, the stainless can not. The stainless is a bit smaller than the stock. I would get a smaller 2 burner stove (I doubt you will ever be cooking 3 things at once) and turn it sideways and get it in stainless steel to match the sink. You will then have more counter space.
