whether one big or two small sinks, a collapsable dishpan is great. I got mine at Cmprwrld. When open it is the size of one side of my sink but could serve for you as an extra sink. Then, as others have said, dump the water into your commode.

I think that's the same tub I use. Camping world has a dish rack that fits inside with space below.

I use the Full Circle collapsible dish rack and it fits great under the refridgerater cabinet. It's available on Amazon.

I am confused as to why there seems to be a common practice of dumping dishwater into the trailer's toilet. Of course, our model of 19' Bambi has a 6-gallon blackwater tank (Airstream changed that only a few months after we bought our trailer). Not a lot of capacity for extra water!

There can be an imbalance of waste water; more grey than black, especially if you're showering in Airstream. So, to even things out, a lot of us wash dishes in bowls and tip the waste water into the toilet. It evens out the use of the waste tanks and any additional water dumped into the black tank is good as it helps break up solids and prevents drying out. We have a 28' International with quite sizable waste tanks, but I guess in the smaller trailers things can get a little tight with the capacities.

Yes, you dump into the black tank to conserve space in the grey.

Even if you are not showering in your AS, the grey can fill quickly.

We have a 20 gallon black, 10 gallon grey.

The extra water in the black can also help disperse and liquify solids.
