Cindy, I like that setup! I might do something similar... It would make dinner prep and dish washing so much easier!

By the way, is that an ashtray below it?

Hi: All...Our sink cover is like a lot of trailers...simply the cut-out from installing the sink!!! It's usually finished around the edges with a router and a 1" finger hole incase you cut off your...to much info. OUCH!!! We have a non-skid cutting board on top of it and a wonderfull BBQ tray that's the same size as the 3 burn stove cover. We also have the flip up counter extension that Reace at Escape installs to extend the space a bit more. No matter what size trailer you have it seems there's never enough counter space!!!

McBrew,

Yes, it is an ashtray. We don't smoke, so we are open to other ideas to use it.

One thing I found is that water from the dishes in the rack dripped onto the bed until we bought a draining rack and put the edge over into the sink. Then the water drained into the sink. Frankly, now with the setup, I just set up the draining rack, do up the dishes, and go off sight-seeing, letting them air-dry.

Hi: CindyL...Looks like a good place to hide your nylon dish scrubbie...or at least half of one!!!

I use a metal rack that you cool cookies on. It allows you to pour into the sink without moving things on top.

Yes, I have used that in two trailers now, a Boler and a Trillium. Mine is a plastic cutting board with metal handles that extend to fit your sink. In each case I had to cut a slight bit from a corner or two so it would fit. Here is the link for where I got mine: Progressive International Over-the-Sink Cutting Board: Amazon.ca: Home & Garden

However, mine has a few slots in it to drain water, although there is a gap at every edge anyway so it would drain naturally.

That's right! We put the scrubbie and the bottle of dish soap in the sink, close the lid, and motor on down the road. (Or did you mean to put the scrubbie in the unused ash tray? Those are kind of gross from its days as a rental camper from UHaul. I've cleaned them out, but haven't replaced them with anything.)
