Anyone Installed an Above Counter Bathroom Sink?

The bathroom sink in my Itasca Ellipse 40FD is too low and placed too far under the medicine cabinet for my tastes. Being 6'6" tall doesn't help the situation.

I'm considering replacing the bathroom counter top and adding one of those "above counter" sinks which look like old fashioned bowls.

Has anyone out there done this? Any insights would be appreciated.

I've done a couple, both were in coaches with very low bathroom counters. The latter one looked like this:
