We have to remember that these are RVs and as such can't be full size houses. My first RV was an 8' pickup camper. Now that had some head banging items in it:wink:

We have the same problem with the bathroom sink in our 2014 Greyhawk. They put the sink too far back and so when I brush my teeth I have to crane my neck to get under the cabinet so I don't spill on the counter in front of the sink.

Counter should be replace with the sink moved as far forward as the cabinet will allow.

Or you could get arm extenders...
Wow, that sink is set far back. I'd be willing to bet that thats the bigger problem than the cabinets. My Father-iin-law built his kitchen and anytime I've done dishes over there I find myself leaning over the sink and my back killing after just a couple minutes. There is no overhead cabinet in the way when bending over, but i finally realized my back was killing because he set his sink too far back. Its only a couple inches, but really makes a difference.

Ok, I have an idea...
Its not much, look at the supplied floor plan from Jayco. Mind you its not an exact representation, however, it could be a good representation of the designers/engineers intent.

http://www.jayco.com/g/db/model_floo...e_pic_2522.jpg

Notice the line at the front of the sink in relation to the front of the cabinet...
Notice the space between the sink and the back wall...

Now look at the Photos of the OP washing dishes. See the difference in the design to the "as built?"

So in closing you could state its not a design flaw but a production issue...

I would say is was their intent to put the sink closer to the front edge, but at build it can't be that forward do to the cabinets beneath. The counter curves out but the cabinets below do not which is why the sink is set back. I personally would not be happy with that design and it stinks the OP is unhappy with it and didn't realize before they purchased that unit, but I also personally wouldn't expect Jayco to pay for the rebuild. There are many things I like and dislike on different floor plans and I wish I could take all the good and put it into one design, but unfortunately you cannot. You need to pick whats best for you out of the current builds and then customize the rest to your own liking.

I'm not going to be much help here but we are not unhappy with the design, but then again my wife is a munchkin at 5' even. I don't do dishes so........ No problem. I will agree however that there is plenty of room to move the sink closer to the front of the cabinet by at least 2".

Solution, get yourself a munchkin and give her the job!

I agree, Jayco should not pay for what would be at this point a modification.
They should be made aware of the perceived design issue.

The sink base cabinet does extend out to accommodate a forward set sink.
If it was me, and I was unhappy with it, I would replace the counter and sink.
Exactly like you are saying about customizing what you don't like...

I tend to lose more skin off the top of my head in the outside compartments than I do on the cabinet above the sink. True it's an inconvenience, but ours came with the 4-door refrigerator in lieu of a pantry so every cubic inch of cabinet space is precious. My wife clears the cabinet just fine. Perhaps it's just a reminder that there can be too many cooks in the kitchen!

Perhaps I am missing something here. When you looked at the model, were the sink and cabinets in place? The unit you purchased, were the sink/cabinets different from the model you looked at? If you got what you looked at and subsequently purchased then I am unsure what this has to do with Jayco. We all make decisions that we later regret but is it not an error that you made and not really a Jayco issue? If the design is flawed, the customers send the message to the manufacturer by not purchasing it in the first place. I am not trying to be difficult but sometimes it is not a manufacturer problem!
