I've been wanting to install a pull-out faucet in my vintage Bigfoot
trailer's galley sink for awhile now but found them to be prohibitively expensive through RV channels. It's a small sink with 4-inch on-center holes, like a household bathroom sink. The faucets I could find in the RV parts channels all seemed to be in the $150 to $200 range and without even being able to look at one in person first, I wasn't willing to take the risk.
But recently I noticed a number of manufacturers have released a pull-out faucet for laundry sink use, which generally have the same 4-inch on-center arrangement as a lavatory sink. There are a number of eBay sellers that have them from anywhere between $26 and $60 but again, I wanted to see one in person before I committed.
A few days ago while browsing the aisles at Home Depot I saw a Glacier Bay version of this faucet for $46.00. Glacier Bay is Home Depot's house (private label) faucet brand and I've always had decent luck with them in home-use. They aren't high-end by any stretch of the imagination but for as little as I use my trailer, only a few times a year, I figured it would be adequate considering the reasonably low investment.
It was an easy install. I only had to drill a center hole for the pull-out hose through the counter top, which took three drill bits and about 5 minutes of my time. The faucet is a perfect fit and a nice size for the sink in my trailer and should make dish washing easier and more water efficient.
The faucet is not highly rated on the HD web site but one thing I've learned over time about HD ratings is that a lot of times the "weekend warrior" types that shop at HD sometimes have unrealistic expectations of the things they buy, or often don't have the skill to install them properly, and want to blame the item. I've bought many "poorly rated" items from HD that installed and worked just fine for me so I take the reviews there with a grain of salt.
I'm just passing this on for anyone who is looking for an inexpensive solution to a pull-out faucet upgrade for a 4-inch on-center sink. Instead of looking through RV supply channels, look for a laundry sink faucet. They seem to be pretty prolific through home improvement channels these days.
