A sink for Donna...
BOHOLMEN Single-bowl inset sink - IKEA
I have put this IKEA sink in three different RV's and it's great. I would have put it in the Hunter, but there just wasn't enough space.

Donna it looks like they are deeper than 12" unless I am reading it wrong.
They seem to have a couple of different depths - 420mm/16" and 470mm/18.5" or at least I am assuming that the total depth would be the sink.

In Euro-Talk "Deep" often means front to back size. Here's the deepest in real sink depth:
SMEV 7307 Deep Sink, round stainless steel with Fold-down Faucet and Dark Glass Lid Camper Trailer RV


Dimensions: 7.8 inches Deep, 16.5 inches Round

A cup that size could double as the kitchen sink, no?

Jim, I've been known to do dishes in it. Remember, my doctor said ONE cup... that's one cup.

Our Trillium came with the 3 burner/ sink unit. While it's certainly nicer looking than the Atwood we had in our previous trailer, the quality is not as good as I had hoped for. I had to add a bumper for the glass to sit on when closed as the ones provided weren't high enough and the glass was riding on the burner grates. The plastic grommets that hold the grates in place are breaking. The chrome plated plastic faucet that came with the sink broke. I will be removing the glass on the sink side to accommodate a replacement rather than pay $45 for the one sold with the unit. On the plus side, the burners seem to heat a little quicker that the Atwood. Also no paper stickers on the control knobs. It has electric ignition and smooth controls It's easy to clean and the glass does provide counter top space. Still, for over $500 with the faucet, the quality should be better. Raz

p.s. Donna is correct, the sink measures about 3 3/4 inches deep.

Raz, everything is working great with ours after 4 years now. No issues with the tap, but even if it goes, we will get another folding one, though perhaps a higher one. No way my wife would give up the glass, she used that as counter space quite a bit. I have had to replace a couple of the rubber bumpers and grommets, but I got a whole bunch of both as spares from the supplier. I bet if you got hold of the Trillium folks, they could get them for you.

Washing dishes is enough of a pain but in 3 3/4" inches deep? Ouch

Here's where the faucet broke. I used JB weld for a temporary fix. When it broke they wanted $75 for a replacement. Not much else available that will fit under the glass. I hope to install the one I bought next spring and use the hinges to hold a soap dish.

Looks like the same tap I have. Knock on wood, no issues with it yet. I do worry given its obvious low quality. I find the stove/sink unit to be of quite decent quality.I have seen some much nicer folding taps, mostly on European or Aussie/NZ sites, that cost a bit more, but would be worth it.

Though shallow, dinner plates sit flat in the bottom of the sink, no problem. We rarely wash dishes inside, but when we do have had no problem with the size. After all, we are trying to use as little of our water as possible, as most of our camping is boondocking.
