Question Need SCAMP SINK, HELP PLEASE!!

i have a 13 ft Scamp and love it but one thing really irks me. I need a sink in the bathroom, just a TINY SINK to wash hands after toileting, a corner one would be perfect. My husband can do some plumbing but not make a sink. It sickens me to have hands washed in the kitchen sink where our dishes and eating utensils are.

I have tried Camping World but they didn't have any. Can anyone help me with finding one?

Thanks, (and this is my first day here on this group),
Carolyn

Hand Sanitizer

Have you thought about putting a bottle of hand sanitizer in the bathroom.
I keep a bottle of it in my truck to clean my hands after using the dump station and yes I wear rubber gloves when dumping

Easy... call Scamp: 1-800-346-4962

I'd suggest email, but since it's a toll-free number... I'd use it.

ON EDIT: I forgot to welcome you Carolyn! You'll find lots of kind, helpful people here at FiberglassRV.

Carolyn the PO of my trailer added a small corner bathroom sink to my Scamp and I have to say I really wish they had not! The bathroom as you know is small and that *little* sink makes it hard for me to turn around in the bathroom and I am not a big person. I have considered removing it many many times! Just not sure about how to go about filling all the holes that were made for the water piping and sink itself during the install. Just as easy to take 3 steps to the kitchen sink to wash up.

We bought a tiny corner sink to install in our (now former) front bath Scamp like this one:
LaSalle Bristol 10" x 10" White Corner Lavatory Sink - Lavatory Sinks - Sinks - Sink & Drain - Plumbing)
But, as it would take up a lot of space, as well as being a PITA for plumbing and drains, it was never installed.

There are "No Touch" Purell dispensers that would be a lot less trouble and would do the job with a lot less fuss. Also, WalMart has 12"x12" disposable hand wipes as well.

I feel the same as you and was planing on putting one in my bathroom also. I found a couple on ebay a few months ago. Not sure if any are currently listed but I'd give them a look. Lots of surplus RV parts dealers dump their stuff on ebay.

Something to consider... before buying anything. Find out the total dimensions of the sink you're considering buying. Make something those exact dimensions out of cardboard and tape it to the wall. Now, go into the bathroom and "act" like you're actually using the bathroom... standing and showering, sitting, etc. Is the faux sink in the way? Does the space it takes up bother you? Then immediately take it down and repeat the "use" process. Which is better and which do you prefer?

We have a front bath 13 Scamp and the sink is not only convenient, but essential when boondocking, for water conservation. With the addition of the medicine chest/linen closet it completes a full function bathroom.

Talking Thanks to all who replied

Thanks everyone for all the help and suggestions.
Donna, thank you for the great idea of making a cardboard replica and trying that out first. I will do that.
Carolyn

Don't forget, anything that you put in the bathroom will add to tongue weight, already somewhat heavy on Scamps with the front bath.

Just to throw an idea in the mix. You mentioned your husband can not make a sink...but I bet he could.
I've seen another person on this forum make a sink using a stainless steel salad or mixing bowl with a small drain afixed through a hole drilled in the bottom of the bowl.
It could likely be a $ cheaper and lighter route.
Just an option!

Great idea Donna. Suspect the small corner bathroom sinks have more of a impact on space in the Scamp side bath model vs the front bath which if I am not mistaken have a slightly larger bath room.

I don't want to come across as rude, but there is no difference, really. Check out the mythbusters bathroom toothbrush episode. They still had poo on the toothbrush that was in the break room across the warehouse from the bathroom.

Long story short, it doesn't matter which sink you use, it's already there.
