Yep, and I think the consensus was that first, you would propably have to mount it on an outside wall, not IN the galley. Second, you need a pressurized supply.

So with those constraints, there are other options, like freestanding units that basically do the same thing.

...looks like it would be adaptable...you would need a pressurized supply for the spigot and such to work (either pump or main pressure)...course you sould haveta plan your galley around a big green plastic sink...if it works for you, it works for me(for you) and the price is pretty nice also.....

I think one other point is the size. At 29" long, and if you look at the relative size of those side shelves, the actual sink may be real tiny. It's one of those things that you want to se in person to judge all of the dimensions.

Wouldn't HD or Lowes carry something like this to take a look at?

I am going with the sink out of a Coleman Camp Kitchen. You can order the pieces here.

http://www.coleman.com/coleman/parts/ProductImage2.asp?product_id=840-700

You need:
item #3-sink $22
item #7-stopper $1.50
item #8-drain hose $2.52
item #9-hose connector $2.20

For $28.22 + shipping you get a pretty good setup. I have the Camp Kitchen already & it works really well. I will ordering these parts to use in the teardrop. The hose fits into one of those colapsable water jugs. That is what I use to drain the sink.

I was thinking about mounting the sink on the outside of the trailer when at a camp site with a water hookup.
I would mount it like some people have their side attaching tables.
Seems small enough to keep inside the triler when not in use and even if there is no water hookup you still have the extra work surface and some where to do dish's. Drain it into a bucket to haul away.
I will be at bargin outfitters to pick up a tent and will have a look to see if I will be able to adapt it to my use.

I can't get to it right now to measure it but I would say it is about 5" deep, 12" wide & 16" long. I may be a little smaller, I have not had it out for a year. It is about the size of a Rubbermaid dish pan. The hose is about 3 feet long.
