Modify Sink

We have a 5.0TA on order and am thinking of substituting this sink.

Stainless Steel Drop-In Bar Sink - Kitchen

Has anybody used this one, if so can you post a picture? I will lose a little over 4" of counter space. We are also getting an oven so not sure if I will be left with much counter!

You should be okay. With the oven, the stove is installed closer to the bulkhead (next to dinette) than it would be if you just got the cooktop. I have the standard sink and stove-with-oven, and appreciate every inch of counter space between the two, but if you prefer a bit wider sink, I think you'll be happy with the compromise.

Thanks for your input Mary. I have cursed my small sink whenever I have used it for the last 8 years and would be willing to give up a little counter space for something larger. We are also getting a counter extension next to the sink so that should be useful.

I too was frustrated with the small sink from ETI, but I knew it going into the purchase and figured I would be able to find an acceptable sink down the road. It took longer to find the right sink than I figured it would, but I am more pleased with the outcome than I figured I would be! Here are a few photos. Interestingly enough, the counter top opening was the perfect size and no additional cutting was required. One can't ask for more than that. Sorry, but I can't find the brand and model paperwork right now.

Anything stamped (or labels) on the bottom or exposed sides of the sink?

Here's Larry's (Petrol35) original thread about his sink (model, etc. in the thread): Kitchen sink upgrade

Didn't I read that ETI was limiting the sinks they would install?

They told me that one side has to be 16" or less and it cannot have a hole for the faucet.

We also have the counter extension, and it's great. A Rubbermaid dishpan fits into the standard sink in our 2015-21, and that's all I asked of it. Being able to customize some aspects of these trailers is one reason I like them. Accommodating diverse camping styles!

That's a good looking sink Peggy!

I may get a new sink at some point. I love the looks and dimensions of this one from Ambassador Marine

I think the offset, bar-sized drain is neat. Connect it with a hepvo...

That is a pretty sink. I was most interested in getting a deeper sink than Escape offers.

There is s 9 3/4 inches deep version of that sink too.l, but it's too deep for me (and it's $$$). I think 8 inches might be my ideal.

Are you happy with the new sink. Any modifications to make it work?
We would like to upgrade ours in our 21.
Thanks

We are loving the sink. It is a nice depth and cleans up easily.
