Because we can!

Seriously, the stock one would work just fine, but folks like me prefer to jazz things up at bit, albeit at a higher cost. Some like sinks bigger, to have more room, but have a smaller sink uses less water, meaning your fresh water might last longer, and you will use less propane heating it up, but you could always use a dish pan in a larger sink to save water. A larger sink takes up more valuable counter space too. No one good way to go for everyone, that's for sure. :

We went with the stainless steel sink when Tammy mentioned to us that many people who order the oven (black enamel range top) prefer the stainless steel to the white enamel sink because of the colour thing. So we got the stainless sink. Being a man from mars I didn't get it, and still don't!

It appealed to my inner neatnik.

Like Donna, we chose to have a sink where the faucet sits on top of the sink, and not on the counter. The sink we chose this a bar prep hammered steel sink and we are quite happy with it. The size is adequate for us, and many times we use our collapsible dishpan that sits on the sink for times when the campsite has dish water disposal dumps at the sites, thereby keeping the level of our gray water down.

I believe the 2017 models will have a stainless sink as standard and the faucet has changed to one with a pull out. Tammy posted a photo of it within the past few months. As to which thread - heck if I know.

Of course nothing will be confirmed until they upload photos of the interior of a new 2017 model.
