Kitchen Sink

There have been some responses from folks wanting double sinks or different sinks than provided from ETI. But, has anyone actually done it?

Plotting and planning.

TIA

Donna, we thought about a double, since we now have the counter space (21'), but we didn't like what the double sink would do to the storage space underneath. We are open to a larger single in the future, if needed.

Understood. I was reading a thread over on the CasitaForum, where an owner suggested using a handicap trap and hepvo valve. This is for a single drain, I wonder if there's one for a double drain. Hummm.

I don't see a functional trap in the picture, not even a little one. How does it work? Could the trap be located outside the under-sink area?

The trap, would be a hepvo. The image was just to show the handicap drain.

Your post is very timely Donna. Could I ask for someone (or several) to measure their sinks (width - height - depth). I am also interested in the sink size since I find most RV sinks far too small ... but I also do not want a double sink. If I can get some dimensions I can research what is available and change the sink in the build sheet if I find a better size for us on our 19'.

I assume that the "handicap trap" is just a sharp elbow, to keep the drain from hanging down in the way of a wheelchair user. They are presumably used with a conventional trap mounted against (or in) the wall or below the floor - obviously in the trailer under the floor or in the wall would not work, but the trap could still be against the wall, minimizing the loss of useful storage space. Drains for two sinks would presumably just meet in a Y, before the trap (conventional or Hepvo).

I would prefer two sinks, but not of similar size - one big for dishes, the other small just to be available (for handwashing or to dump waste water) when the main sink is in use.

FWIW I'm told the double that Reace will install is an Atlas #573-2, but I'll be darned if I can find what that is. I don't live close enough to pick one up of my choice and deliver it.

This is a crappy image for a double sink, but I visualize the hepvo where the cursor is, discharge near the back wall.

I'd like the counter measurement from underneath. The cabinet is framed, so the top surface may not give an accurate measurement for a sink.

Ian, I'm looking into a prep sink.
