i find doing dishes difficult in my 17b water gets every where i can wash but where do i rinse and then where do i put drying dishes. its one of the things i haven't worked out yet i like the idea of a double sink (bigger trailer) and i would like the sink to be further from my bed! haven't gotten the doing them outside concept worked out either -carrying hot water and rinse water outside or from the other side of the trailer i usually spill everywhere.

Stainless stock sink on the 19 has been fine. I wouldn't want to lose any more cabinet space for anything deeper and there wouldn't be much that I could put in that would be smaller.

Dishes

We use a tea kettle with a snap lid to carry water outside either hot or cold. I've never watched how dishes are done on the inside but I know my wife rinses them and uses a wire or plastic drying rack and a dish draining rubber mat that drains to the sink. We have division of duties. Man. = Fire, Water and Firewater. Woman = Dishes, Laundry and Whip.

Everything is a trade off. One of the best decisions I made for myself was having ETI put in the Prep sink. Yes it's deeper, I still have plenty of cupboard space underneath, it's wider, I turned the 2-burner stove to portrait to gain back any lost counterspace. NIRVANA. I do all my cooking inside.


I totally relate to Kate mentioning getting water everywhere. Oh my stars, I slopped water everywhere in my Scamp. What a flippin' soggy mess. No more, not ever. I've even washed my hair in the sink and can keep both elbows inside the sink which means no water running off my arms and onto the floor. Works for me!

But, we all use our trailers and its components in differing ways. Makes them all unique in one way or another.
The boss would not be without. We also find even with the 3 burner, that we have plenty of counter space. The counter extension and sink covers make it a non issue. Table is all of 12"'s away too. Goes to show you, different folks, different strokes.

We have yet to use 3 burners, so it's really a 2 burner with a spare. We're not much for elaborate meals when we're traveling, when we want something like that we look for a good local restaurant.

Donna, I can wash my hair with the volume of water in a teacup, dry it with one paper towel sheet, and "fix" it with a comb in 15 seconds. Of course sunburn is the trade off if I can't find my hat.

Long, long time ago I got the following measurements from ETI and was told to stay within this range for any sink that we wanted.

"You are correct, a bar sink rather than a standard kitchen sink, is what we can install. The double sink that we offer is 24 x 14 and 5-6 deep I would stay within that range and be sure to send a photo/weblink with specs prior to purchasing or shipping the sink. If there is a weight consideration then we can address it when we have all of the specs. "

And yep, that's the sink we're getting that Nathan just posted! I was so thrilled when I found that sink. I knew I wanted a black sink but wasn't super thrilled about the shiny ones I was finding within the size requirement. During a visit to Pioneer Building, we saw a larger version of that sink and did some research. Pioneer ordered it and it's actually now at ETI awaiting our build.

Before deciding on any sink, it's always smart/safe to double check with ETI on whether it'll work or not. Even if it's one someone else has already used, as you just never know. I also found out they won't mount any sink that's an undermount (I think that's what it's called).

I'm so looking forward to that sink. We're getting the same countertop that Nathan has, so it was thrilling to see what it looked like in his trailer. Ack, the wait, the wait!

We're getting the sink turned so the opening for the faucet (also from Blanco) will be on the left instead of the right. I figured I'd bonk into it less in that position. At the end of December I can tell you if that's a true statement or not.

Hi: Iowa Dave... I wonder why no one ever thought of putting SPF 60 in Brylcreem? Remember... "A little dab'll do ya"!!! Alf
