Found I already have this picture. You can see the cover could, in no way, fall into the sink.
If yours does, I'm bewildered.
I'm guessing you are still under warranty.
Maybe pix might explain your predicament.

No, not at all. The OP said "new buyers" and that includes lots of folk that order the standard formica. All I said is that I ordered some later from them. But the OP didn't raise the issue of buyers who supplied custom fabric or formica specifically and I didn't comment on it.

Some of these issues are like "Buyer's remorse", "If I had known about it, I would have done it" scenario.. Well now you know, so next time you buy , you ask in advance, not after taking delivery. An educated consumer takes practice. That is why there are repeat customers. I'm sure your first new auto purchase was a learning experience. But you went on and bought another new one.

We had ETI install their standard Formica, but I ordered a 4'x4' piece extra. I don't have any immediate plans to use it but I am reassured I now have matching material for future projects or changes. The cost was minimal

To paraphrase Honest Abe, "You cannot please all of the people all of the time."

I chose to go with the standard upholstery and standard Formica because I felt that should I want to make any custom "additions" after having my trailer for a while, I could readily obtain the needed materials from ETI. My build list currently specifies an additional 2 Yards of upholstery material be supplied with the trailer, in the event we decide to make some kind of curtain to close off the bed area in the 5.0TA.

Carl,
Spoken from a strange eye from a straight guy sometimes a complimentary color will highlight an existing scheme vs more of the same original background.

When you build a custom built sticks 'n bricks home, they don't stack all the "extra" stuff in the garage for you....

Actually...

I have a couple of stacks of left-over flooring, tiles, trim and paint in my basement, and a couple of bundles of left-over shingles in my garage.

Didn't get the sink-cutout from the granite counters, though. That woulda been cool...

Since I let myself get dragged into the discussion, I tend to agree that if ETI asks for more fabric than they need, they should at least offer to return the extra. I think the formica is less of an issue, because most people wouldn't have any use for it.

But it's all small potatoes...

During my pickup I requested any pieces of left over wall covering. It was met with a "we do not save any items". I had thought something from window openings might be around. Like many of you, I did not have a plan for its use so just brushed it off. Who you ask can probably make a big difference?

I got my fabric back and didn't even need to ask for it. It was in the trailer, in the loft, when I picked up Ten Forward.
