A tip-up sink!

After reading the older thread about the travels of the 5.0 classic landing in The Netherlands, I got curious about what fiberglass trailers are available in Europe. Just started with the google search, but found this little tidbit.

This trailer has a tip-up sink! Now, how cool is that?

Look at the photos under the larger one of the trailer and you'll see it folded up. I wonder how common that is.

Mind you, I'm not going to ask for that modification (don't want to get kicked out of the factory when I ask about that one!), but it does make you wonder!

Freedom Microlite Caravan, small, lightweight, 2 berth

here you go, a dutch factory of Fiberglass trailers. No 5th wheel for sure but very nice (and expensive) caravans.

You can, to great extend, design you onw interior.

This company has been around the block since 1965!

Not sure what you mean by tip-up sink. That looks similar to the glass lid SMEV sink/stove combo we put in our Escape.



This is the one I bought to put in my daughter's Trillium 1300. I actually much prefer this, as we never use the third burner on ours.

Maybe you have to flip it back up to drain out the water. There seems to be some kind of containment below the sink where it is hinged. Could be a drain in there?

That is quite likely. What is not very likely, is that it would actually get used by us. A simple basin would be better. A basin is so much more flexible, as we usually use it outside, or put on the table, or the counter...... At least that is what we are used to for washing up, as we find the sink in the Escape bath is too small and cramped to be useful for washing.

I guess one could just use a large, upside down hard hat?
