Remove sink from the bathroom

Has anyone ever removed the sink out of the bathroom on there Escape 19 ? My wife would kind of like to have more room in the bathroom when the bathroom is need as a changing room. We are finding that when have our kids or grandkids in the trailer we are using the bathroom a lot as a changing room.

Since your grandkids are only occasional campers... I'd suggest hanging a tension rod from one side to the other on the overhead cabinets and hanging a curtain. The whole thing can be removed when you're traveling sans-grandkids. Besides, there would be no damage that way either....

Sorry, it doesn't answer your question on point...

We have not done it Mark, but have thought about it. Though we never use it, it really is not much in the way of our use of the bathroom.

Hi Donna,
Your right but what I was thinking of is making the sink remove able so that it could be removed and then easily put back in place . But don't worry this is going to happen anytime soon too many irons in too many different fires at this time.

It occurred to me on my last camping trip that the sink in the bathroom makes a unobtrusive "assistance" bar. You might find it "handy" as you age.

Jim, if you did remove the sink, how would you configure and attach the diverter valves and handles?

This would be true for the wife of a "senior member" that heads down the road not realizing she isn't in the TV.

Not sure on that at all, have not lent a lot of thought to it. I would imagine a different set of taps dedicated to the shower would be in order, sans diverter. Have to have a good look next weekend.
