Kitchen Sink- Single vs Double

We are purchasing a DS 4369. Does anyone have an opinion whether a single sink or double sink is better to work with? Any advantages or disadvantages of each?

I think if you look deeper, the single is stainless while the double is a solid surface material. The wife thought she'd like stainless, we have porcelain in our house, but it leaves "stains" all the time and needs to be cleaned a lot, didn't know that. We have the solid surface in the bathroom and love it.

We have the double and have loved it so far. Our previous coach had it as well and we prefer it as it gives you extra space while prepping and after meals. If with the dishwasher we like it still better than the single. I think this is one of those personal preferences though!

We have the single, stainless steel. I think it works better with large pots and bowls. I was also worried about staining of a white sink: we eat a lot of beets and tomato sauce based foods :-)

We have a double sink but so far have only used one side preferring to keep the cover on the other one for counter space. We wash the few dishes we use on one side and have not found it to be a bother. Someone who does a lot of cooking may need both sides.

We really did not have the option but if the option was there, and we have always had two, I suspect we would have ordered two. I'd rather have it and not need it than the reverse.

one sink is plenty. double takes too much counter space. we keep ours covered all the time and never use it, Pain because you still have to clean it periodically
because all the new diesel pushers have the great drawer dish washer
one seldom washes much cook,eat ware by hand anyhow

We have stainless double. Like the stainless. One side stays covered to create extra counter space, seldom used.

The single will be a larger basin but the double has, in my opnion, the advantage.. And I have had both.

We have a stainless double and since we don't have a dishwasher, we use both sides all the time. When we're parked both sides are always open. I think even if we had the dishwasher we'd still keep them open because they are useful. Put a cover on the induction cooktop and there is plenty of counterspace.

We have a 2015 DS
With 2 solid surface sinks and dishwasher.
Took the covers and put them under the sink, never use them.
Any size pot we have fits in the big sink.
When we have small meals we use big sink for washing and small sink for drying, works great.
Lots of red sauce never had stain problems as long as you rinse down.
MHO----- 2 sinks

Put this on your list of "specials." Request a double, stainless steel sink that is normally standard on the Ventanna. It's, larger, deeper and most functional.

Stay away from porcelain. We did that once, never again. Too hard to keep clean. Our coach is used as a second home. We use it, cook in it, eat in it, and basically live in it when we are away from home. Therefore, functionality is paramount.

I know you're not asking, but since it's visible in the pic, this is the last time for the kitchen window. Won't be ordering it on next coach.

Good luck.

The one thing I didn't like about the double stainless sink, when I saw it, was the seams in the corners. My OCD thought my slobby evil twin personality might grow germs there :-)

PS - x2 on the "no kitchen sink window" - it seemed impossible to keep it from getting spotted/ splattered in our last MH. That said, DH thinks it might have added a good fresh air source in this one, for my "learning curve" on the induction stove (OK fine, I burned a few things).

We looked at a Holiday Rambler with a single round sink and eliminated it from our list. You can uncover one side and have more counter space. A single sink is all or nothing.
