RV Bathroom Faucet upgrade

Has anyone upgraded their bathroom faucet lately? We are going to replace ours in our 2017 21' TT, but I don't see a lot of choices out there. The nicest one I have seen so far on Amazon and e-Trailer is the one below. The new faucet should have a diverter and a d-spud to connect the shower hose.

Entertaining your thoughts.

See what happens when you full time, you spend too much time inside rearranging or replacing items. I'm just happy I have an Escape to use, but on the other hand Fred, I'm envious of your lifestyle and freedom from a tether.

I like the white, since the bath and the sink are white. Now, if I could find a suitable stainless steel replacement for that corner sink, and a brushed nickel replacement faucet with a diverter, I'd be all over it.

In Welsh horses, a Welsh-D is taller than a C, which is taller than a B, etc. So I'd guess your D-spud might well be a potato of the tallest variety.

I was thinking the same thing too. I don't mind the white, but the spout is so darned low.

Would a bar-type faucet work? Same as what many get for the kitchen sink?

I would love to replace it with a lever-style faucet. And not in white. Or stainless. (Sorry PatandLinda on the stainless - HA!)

The problem is you need a diverter faucet in order to use the shower. The diverter needs to be after the valves.

The only other option I can see is using a gooseneck lav faucet (though not too big), and separate shower taps. This is starting to put a lot of stuff in the small wet bath though.

I mostly use the sink for brushing my teeth inside when my wife is still sleeping. We really could do without, but then I though I would never have an oven again, and that never worked out planned.
