    So I've posted this question in the bay tech section aswell, but thought I woulp put it here with my resto thread.

    Alright a question for those out there with campers, as shown below I've got cabinets in and am installing an induction cooktop, now the next question is sink or no sink? If you have a sink how often do you actually use it and do you think it is worth installing one?

    Depends where you camp I guess. If off grid like we do, then we use it a lot.. Plus the big tank under the floor.
    Looking good!

    I hate sinks.

    I had one at one stage and I only used it for sitting soggy wet-suits in after a surf.

    Much better with a collapsible bucket you can stash in your cupboard and wash on the table outside.

    if you spill it just waters the grass or dirt..

    When finished just toss the dirty water away.

    Yep think I'm going with a fold up camping sink, decided there is more negatives in having a sink inside.

    Thanks:)
