Replacing the bathroom sink

We have a 2017 25' FC, we're interested in replacing the 13" self rimming sink in the bathroom of our trailer. We are not happy with the stainless steel sink. Has anyone replaced their sink & where did you purchase your new sink? Thanks for your help.

It's just like replacing a sink at home, and you can get sinks at most any big-box or bathroom specialty store.

Iíve done this in my last two airstreams. I got the sinks online because my interests were more specific than what I could find locally. When replacing the sink, I made other adjustments like making the counter larger, shifting the faucet (and replacing that too) and modifying the plumbing to get more usable space in the base cabinet. These were offseason modifications

When you chose your replacement sinks were you concerned at all about weight? Did you attach them with anything more than just sealant? Can you please post pictures of the new sink/faucet and plumbing configuration?

Iím planning to replace the sink and faucet as well. I donít want to add too much additional weight and Iím also concerned that normal sinks are not made to bounce down the road and could crack or come dislodged if not secured properly during installation.

Saraed, When changing out the sink, I replaced the whole counter top. It is reconfigured to ease the shape, provide more usable space and for a larger sink. The faucet is placed off center to capitalize on the additional counter space. The selected sink is a higher gauge than the original. The sink is held in place with sealant and claps. Typical installation. The weight difference, if any, is minimal.

Iíve been trying to add a couple of pictures with no success. But will keep trying.

Planning on replacing mine too..what I want is a ceramic. I just feel like I'm in the kitchen if it is stainless but not sure where to get it and if there is a perfect fit for mine.

Look up at my previous post. I used a Kohler ceramic. It is not a perfect fit but it took very little work with a handheld saber saw. Kohler is carried by many places online and in-person.

Both the sink replacements look great! Thank you for posting pictures!

Did you keep the countertop or replace it? If replace, what material did you use and how did you get the exact measurements and shape?

I just enlarged the existing hole, keeping the existing countertop. The sink came with a template that I taped, then cut with my saber saw. Took maybe 15 minutes. The plumbing took more time.

I took a different approach. Tossed the original top as I changed the shape. More curves like an airstream should be. Used a plywood base, adhered the laminate, used an aluminum edgeband and edge cove to wall, and template for the sink cutout. If you are going for a porcelain or ceramic vessel, use the same process if it is a drop in.
