    Following the thread of do you use the loo --it's got me thinking - do you use the loo sink ? sounds a daft question but we always used the loo but I can only remember the sink being used to store Ann's makeup bag and wet ones -we always stored toothpaste /brush in the loo cupboard but we always brought it out and used the kitchen sink --question is do I need to put a loo sink in the van or not ? would it put you off buying or not ? is it a must have?

    Without a sink in the little room where would you shave and brush your teeth?

    Terry, it would put me off without one - where do you wash the hands after a dump. You would have to open the door, close the door and shuffle to the sink to wash your hands,,,,, all the nice clean dishes on the drainer - wife bent over cleaning her teeth etc - or am I looking at it the wrong way round?

    Always had wet ones for wiping hands plus we always have sanitizing foam hand stuff by the kitchen sink -- but yes that's one vote for a sink :Smile: Wife would never have let me leave clean dishes draining for that long :BigGrin:wiped and put away :thumb: she had me well trained :Wink:

    I had this discussion with a few people when designing our van layout.

    We decided not to put a sink in the bathroom to save space and to make the bathroom door split the van into two rooms. With the bathroom door open we now have the kitchen sink opposite and a changing area and it works great.

    Sink next to loo a must in my opinion. Wouldn't buy a van with out a sink in the bathroom.

    How else is Colin going to get ready while I take hours in the bathroom, he uses the kitchen sink:BigGrin:

    Sink

    The question is a wind up isn't it. It cannot possibly be serious.

    always use the sink in the bathroom for hand washing and teeth cleaning. wouldnt want toilet germs in the kitchen area, so a small basin in the bathroom is essential. wouldnt buy one without these days.

    however we managed just fine years ago in 1960s and 70s vans. in those days you were posh if you had a portapotti inside the van, often behind a curtain. then just a foot pumped single cold tap in the galley area. ohhh those were the days. bugger I'm getting old

    Of course I am serious -why else would I put it in the self build section?
    I seriously don't know whether to put a sink in the loo or not :Eeek: hence the very serious question :Smile: no doubt funsters will have a field day but I will get my answer plus a few laughs BTW sink or no sink / do you use it ?

    i would put in a sink, you might regret not doing so later, and it would be so much more awkward when all finished

    Well, that took all of two minutes for the inevitable.........

    Serious question, though for a self builder. Glad you actually got a sensible answer or two:thumb:

    FWIW when I converted our Iveco I didn't put a sink in the wee room. I just felt it would be a waste of effort and we haven't missed it at all. With the door open the kitchen sink is effectively in the same room so we use that.
