I'm going to add this type of faucet to whatever we order.
Courtesy of the original owners; who apparently customized liberally during initial build (including upholstery I suspect), and added a few more neat touches later.

We sent ETI a single hole single lever faucet for facory installation. The spread faucet takes up too much room. Those 20 sq. in. of added counter space helps. And, no, the hoses underneath don't interfear with anything.

Thank you everyone for your input and especially the pictures. I feel much better about getting a spray faucet now. And I much prefer the high neck option from CADreamin. Definitely going to look into that. Thanks again!

Isn't this kind of information valuable? There are so many choices that on first blush, folks don't even consider.

For years, I have mopped up water behind the faucet of my sink in the Scamp. Hands wet when turning off the faucet, sloppy dishwasher (me!), lots of wet stuff going on.

When I decided on my custom ETI build, the sink and faucet area became important. I didn't want to duplicate the same WET I had problems with for years.

Hence, the prep sink (love the bigger size) AND the faucet actually sits ON the sink, not behind where all that wet stuff happened and I've dealt with for years...

May the choice you make work perfectly for you!

That's why I'm now taking the time to read through some of the older threads to find out what's what. It'll take time, but I plan to work my way through quite a bit of it. I'm constantly taking notes and sending links to hubby so he can read 'em. (He thoroughly enjoyed the photos of someone's factory tour from a few years ago - he's an engineer. I fall asleep over stuff like that. HA!)

Good idea with the faucet on the sink, but it doesn't have the single lever, unfortunately.

And it's all about what works best for YOU.

Love the sink and faucet you put in. You're right about the water everywhere. I am always mopping up water in our Casita, so having the faucet mounted on the sink makes sense. Would you share the brand of the sink? Also, what is the size?
Thanks!

Thank you All for chiming on this faucet /sink thread. I'm working on my build list and your comments have been so very helpful.

We have the stock faucet and sink, and are generally satisfied with it. But we find that the tap continues to drip when not in use. Anyone else had this experience? Any suggestions?

Hi: lyndamac... Holding water in the faucet is a sign that it's... well, holding water. Therefore you can expect a drip or two or small puddle on the sink cover. We leave a folded wash cloth there to soak them up. I'm no expert on RV plumbing... but my definition of an expert is... "Ex is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure". Enjoy your running water!!! Alf
