Brought our Escape home nearly 2 yrs ago with custom fabric and Formica. When we picked it up, they had a box of leftover fabric waiting for us. Didn't get any left over Formica, but it was a standard pattern readily available at any major building supply store. The leftover fabric may eventually be put to use in additional cushions or another project, and I am happy it was returned to us.

My sink cutout fits in the sink without falling in. If yours falls into the sink, I would suggest adding a bit of rubber trim (or other suitable material) around the exterior to increase the diameter. Should be a simple fix. Alternatively, give Reace a call and maybe they will be able to help you out.

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.
Hi: C&G in FL... I guess we are lucky to have leftovers at home. We find the open concept is nice so we don't have a curtain in the loft. Because the mattress is on the floor the bed covers stay tucked in so a quick flip and the bed is made!!!
If our Daughter comes camping with us we use a leftover shower spring rod and an old curtain that matches our Mom made quilt. To add this in the dinette you just have to be sure the spring rod is against the cabinet frame on both sides. Alf

If yours does, I'm bewildered.
I'm guessing you are still under warranty.
Maybe pix might explain your predicament.
You have a different sink and the corners are all covered by the insert. My stainless sink has gaps at the corners so the insert slides around and falls in.

ETI probably used the wrong template when they routed my part. I'll probably make a new one out of a cutting board if wifey approves; easy to create an accurate template using a piece of clear plexiglass laid across the sink to trace the shape of the hole.

This is the underside of my sink cover, if that helps.

Very similar to my all time favourite quote, also from Mr Lincoln.

Uh oh, since were quoting Lincoln, here's my favorite -- and it goes well with what Jim said about planning:

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the Axe."

Removing ETI formica

Discovered whatever adhesive ETI uses on their formica is easily overcome with MEK to remove the formica in one piece. Next step is make a cutting board into a sink hole plug that fits like yours and glue it back on the formica

I guess my sink cover fits. Wouldn't know, pitched it in the closet. I don't think there was much Formica left over after my build. Between the kitchen and the three stooge tables I had added. Maybe a small chunk. Don't care if there was a bunch left over. I got the build I wanted! YMMV Just try THAT with the other manufacturers of all molded towables...

Actually I am of the same mind - sink doesn't really care if it's covered or not, and the cover is functionally useless; which is why I think a cover that is a true cutting board makes a whole lot more sense.

We use the cover to hide dirty dishes.
