Want to replace kitchen sink. Recommend

Anyone have any experience with Dehco branded kitchen sinks? Are they any better than Lippert? Thinking about replacing the single bowl in our X23F kitchen with a double bowl for ease of washing dishes (without running the water the whole time and filling our gray water tank). The stainless steel one I was considering has both bowls the same size. I kinda like the idea of one bigger than the other, but Iím only finding that design in ďcompositeĒ materials. Iíve read plenty of complaints about Lippert quality, and the molded corners of their sinks being incredibly thin. Iím almost positive that is what came with our trailer. We arenít having any problems with it, other than having to keep the water running while washing and filling our tank too quickly when we are at a site without sewer.

No help with brands. Our 23B came with double bowls, that are the same size. We like that. We have small wash pans that fit nicely in them.

At home we have double bowls, and one is much smaller than the other, and we HATE, it! It is terrible for hand washing dishes, nothing fits in it.

My vote matching bowls.

My brother-in-laws trailer is an 8 year old 23B, it also has the double-same-size bowls, and they wash dishes in it all the time. I suppose the only the only thing I'd lose with same-size bowls is the that they are rectangular, and I wouldn't' get that little bit of extra space at the top on the left bowl. I suppose that is not really missing anything though. Thank you for the input on the 60/40 bowls! If nothing will fit into the smaller side, I suppose that really is a waste!

Here's the sink I was looking at getting. It has good reviews. Hubby isn't so sure stainless steel will match though.

Current sink is that parchment plastic, and interior of trailer is dark brown. I already bought a satin nickel faucet to install. That's actually how this whole thing started... Wanted a faucet with a single handle for ease of adjusting water temperature and keeping it there. Went to install the faucet, and found I couldn't get the nuts screwed down on the faucet because the dang countertop is in the way below the sink!

Watch for the sink depth, that it won't interfere with drawers that are close, and will be easily hooked to existing plumbing, without major modifications. Also, 22 gauge stainless will dent easier than 18 gauge. Not saying you're going to wash concrete blocks in there, but a pot or pan dropped accidently may leave a mark.


And, why are plates round, and sinks square??? Just wonderin'.

Iíve seriously been considering replacing my sink for the same reasons, my single sink sucks up the water trying to wash and rinse.

However, looking at the specs on this sink, the dimensions are probably going to leave you dissatisfied, they are really shallow at 6 1/2 inches deep, and only 19 inches front to back.

I have been looking at sinks at Home Depot and there are several available that I will probably choose from, I would recommend that you look around before you buy the one you have linked.

Just a thought but wouldn’t it be easier just to put a dish pan with freshwater next to the sink to rinse the dishes and when you’re done you can throw it out so no water gets into the grey tank.

I have one thatís just the right size and use it all the time, saves the amount of hot water I need and protects the thin plastic sink from breaking.

The grade of stainless in our Pinnacle kitchen sink has to be the absolute lowest grade you can buy. I would think that it would be hard to find one the same size, better quality.
