Real metal isn't that much heavier than the plastic (well ok it is heavier but in the grand scheme of things it just aint that much weight). A high arch pull down in the kitchen is so much easier to use in than the pull out style and a decent arched faucet in the bathroom makes hand washing and teeth brushing much and face washing more pleasant.
I guess it's the little things in life that make some of us smile! :-)
I had to look at what a pull down is and I like that idea! I see a kitchen change out in my future.....

I changed mine 2 years ago. Big difference, not hard to do.

I could have saved some $$ by getting something other than Kohler, but I full time and I'm worth it.

I like your rationale. I'm sure it's true!

So do the same faucets work that you would use at home or do you need to buy RV specific replacements. I am picking up my new 27dsrl this week and wanted to have an idea in case we want to replace ours right away.

Regular residential faucets will work just fine. You just get a better selection of style. Rv faucets ( bathroom faucets) are typically plastic whereas residential are brass bodies. Moen, Delta, Kohler, Pfister, Grohe, Hansgrohe,are fine brands for your Rv and can be found at most retailers or your local plumbing wholesaler without breaking the bank.
The only faucet that us an issue in most cases is the shower. The residential ones use an "in wall" valve. The shower hose and spray wand, however, are interchangeable.

Most popular style of kitchen faucet. I've got a new one waiting in a box for when the new 5er shows up.

One thing to keep in mind, if your hot water tank is right under the bathroom sink, like ours in our White Hawk, it is best to go to a single lever faucet. With a separate hot and cold valve faucet, if you turn on the hot faucet first, the water is HOT right now!

With the single lever, you get just warm water and not scalded!

Again making me spend money Murff. Now I want a single handle so my kids don't get hurt.

Well I can't quite figure out how to do a picture but I did get this installed and it seems to be the perfect size and placement so thanks for the suggestion!
