New 21 - Any examples of custom sinks please

Hi,

We have a 21 build slot for 2019 and we have chosen the custom elements withe the exception of the sink. We wish to have a larger sink. ETi have given a couple of photos from folks who have taken this route i.e. Witoswki, Foster and McMorris but would be grateful for suggestions and/or photos and feedback on how they work for you, did you go for a mono tap with pull out faucet, etc. It would greatly help us close the final piece of the build jigsaw.

Thanks

the water pressure and flow rate in an RV are quite a bit lower than a home system, so I'm not sure using home kitchen faucet fixtures would be very satisfactory.

While not a pull-out faucet, the one I purchased is for a home bar sink and it works just fine and as expected with no loss of water pressure. In fact, if it had too much more I would probably spray it all over the place.

I am sure you have thought of this...but...we like the smaller sink as we can use less water to fill it to a suitable level to wash dishes without having to use extreme amounts of water.
If you are not hooked up to unlimited water and sewer this could be a concern. An extra gallon or two every time you wash dishes adds up after a few days off the grid.
The factory tap and sink looks and works great.
All depends on your camping style.

i bought a slightly larger sink - deeper sink. I will look for the model. I think several have used the same sink mine is a composite stone dark grey color. I really like it. I did not like the stock sink in my old escape it was too small and shallow- water splashed everywhere - but I'm not very neat...

We are having a Houzer quartz sink installed in our 5.0TA that will be built next month - a number of other folks with 21's and 5.0TA's have used this sink and ETI said it works well. It is just shy of 16" square and comes in several colors. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

that's the same as my sink but mine is Dark grey- nice size. I've seen a few with sinks that look similar but are stainless too

Hello AnglingMad:

We used the same Houzer quartz sink that David mentions above. We were able to source it from the Canadian Wayfair site, which might be helpful to you if other online sources balk at sending to Canada or add an uncharge to cover brokerage fees. Here's a photo of the "Earth" color option in a 2018 E21:

Thanks!

is that when you're on hookup ? I am mainly concerned with tank/pump use as I'm more often camping 'dry' than with hookups...

There's nothing special about RV plumbing fixtures, except that they are usually especially cheap and accidentally light (because they're often moulded plastic instead of cast metal).

RVs of all sizes tend to use comparable (and by that I mean exactly the same parts) plumbing systems - including pumps - and larger RVs normally use ordinary household fixtures, particularly for the kitchen faucet.

Pull-out faucets are usually awkward in RV cabinets because they often don't have enough clear space under the sink for the hose to hang as designed, but they're still a common choice. An alternative for those wanting a hose is to use the style which arches up through a spring.
