For props, google "gas springs', you should find one. Don't know about a sink.

Good luck.

We want a plain metal prop rod not a gas sping. Because of the angle of the storage unit we cannot use a gas spring. Thanks though.

Ball, clevis, what type of ends on the prop rods?

Make sure the new sink is not so deep the drain line is above the bottom or it will not empty.

not ball or clevis just a plain old fashion metal bar that wings down and hooks into a plate.

You can buy metal rod at Lowes, HD, any decent hardware store, they usually have small racks with angle, rod, flats, steel and aluminum. Cut to length, put it in a vise, clamp it to a table to bend.

I've been looking for a better sink to replace the cheap POS in my MH too. Home Depot & Lowe's have a good selection, but you are likely to have to modify your countertop to make them fit. Plumbing is a snap - especially compared to household systems...

Good luck!

Plumbing supply stores, forget the Home Depot/Lowes "Big Box's". They are very short on anything non standard.
Google "Kitchen Sinks" and you will find hundreds of options online. OBTW they will be better priced there. Look for Blanco, Franke, Kindred, and other European Mfg's for high quality and many sizes.

Ditto what Jerry says - you can view all the sink manufacturer's entire catalog online and order whatever rows your boat from an internet vendor. Or take the catalog item number and get a local store to order it - Lowes can order anything from Kohler, for example.

I am the webmaster for RV-sinks.com, as well as the warehouse manager for American Stonecast, the company behind the website.

Yes, we do carry kitchen and bathroom sinks that can easily replace OEM products. Our main RV sink is 19 x 25 x 7, with a satin finish that is really nice looking and easy to clean. These are not plastic, fiberglass, or stainless steel, they are compression molded polyester resin which is extremely strong and durable. We stock white, bone and cream colors. We supply many of the biggest/best known RV manufacturers in the industry, so obviously it is a quality product.

Please contact us if you need additional information on our products.
