New Galley Faucet Recommendations?

Have a leak in our Galley Faucet and it needs replacing. Our local airstream servicer was going to receive one from Amazon and install for nearly $900. I'll be purchasing and installing myself instead.

Does anyone have a recommended faucet / upgrade they like? Do I need to find an RV specific unit, or will any faucet work?

Most kitchen faucets will work. When I replaced my galley faucet I got one with a pull-out faucet and eliminated the separate sprayer.

Thank you! I think we're looking at a simple one from home depot or lowes. Ours already is a single hole with a built-in/pull-out sprayer so will stay with that style!

Yup, thatís the way to go. Itís just a standard kitchen faucet. Our new faucet was around $90 at HD and took about 30 minutes to install.

I canít believe they wanted $900!?!

Also vote for regular pull-down faucet - we had an extra hole that had a separate sprayer for the original faucet, so we put a soap dispenser in that one when we installed the +/-$90 Home Depot faucet.

Old faucet was fine, I just didn't like it.

Our AS is at the dealer right now getting some repair work done, but when I get it back I intend to install a new faucet similar to this one: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Glacier-...08D2/320828893

We have one of these in the kitchen at home and really like it. The one in the AS has a pull-down spray head now, but the hose constantly gets caught on things in the undersink cabinet. This problem doesn't exist with the type I linked to.

Delta single hole pull down

I used a Delta single hole from Lowes.


Then put a soap dispenser in one spare hole and Waterdrop filter in the other. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B089CKQGL1/ No longer cary bottled water.

I have replaced the faucets in our 19' and 23' trailers with Hansgrohe faucets.

Costco has a few models as does build.com (Ferguson).

For the kitchen, I chose the Allegro HighArc faucet.

We replaced ours with a touch faucet from Amazon. It’s super efficient with water when boondocking since you can set the flow to a minimal amount and then just touch on, touch off. We have one at home that is a Delta, but the one we got for the Airstream is a generic Chinese one (Owofan) that has been just as good. Our original faucet was a three-hole mount, so we replaced it with a single faucet, a soap dispenser, and a filtered drinking water dispenser.

Another endorsement for Hansgrohe, they're the best. We have this one in our home kitchen and might be overkill for the trailer, but it's awesome. I like that I don't have to extend a hose, it reaches most everywhere.

I used a high arc bar faucet. Bar faucets typically have a tighter arc. You'll want to measure where the center of your sink is in relation to the faucet and not exceed that reach.

Look at faucet spec details for reach and height.

I chose this one: https://www.build.com/brizo-61025lf/...66?uid=2563550
