9 Best RV Kitchen Sink Recommendations in 2020

RVs are your home away from home. Because of this, having an RV sink is essential to keeping your space clean.

There are sinks with easy installations, while others are tricky because of cutting boards or sink attachments.

Let’s take a look at some of this year’s best RV sinks to install in your camper.

Buying Guide

  • Know the size you need: Typically, there are three types of RV sinks. Some RV sinks are wide, while others are deep. Others offer ample space such as double bowl skins, while some are designed to be small and compact.
  • Noise and vibration: Some RV sinks come with disposals that will result in additional noise and vibration. With larger sinks, this might not be a concern. But, with smaller sinks, it may not be. Keep in mind any insulation or padding that will stifle the noise if noise will be an issue for you.
  • Installation type: There are two types of installation methods: drop-in sinks and undermount sinks. Drop-in sinks are typically easier to install while undermounts may require professional installation. If you have a sink that is attached to another appliance such as a burner, installation can be difficult and many need to be done professionally.
  • Finishing: Most RV sinks offer a timeless stainless steel construction. These are the easiest to maintain. Other options include hard plastic or aluminum constructions.
