There is a reason for a double sink in an RV. First off, an RV does haven't a garbage disposal. In a single sink at home, you can rinse off the dishes, run the garbage disposal and stick the dishes in the dishwasher. In an RV, people grew up putting soap in one side and rinse water in the other. Typically, most will rinse of their dish(es) and put them in a dishwasher. In an RV, many will let them build and do one wash after dinner. In the mean time there is room on the other side of the sink to wash your hands or prepare food.

Now that water tanks and grey water tanks are larger, the industry could change to a single sink.

We have a dishwasher and as much as we laughed about it when we first got the coach. We love it. We can put about three days worth of dishes in it and then run it in the evenings. It's whisper quiet.

Don is right on point here.
Double sink for me. The only "dishwasher" in my Bounder is ME.

I have a double sink in the RV kitchen. I like it because we can stack dirty dishes on one side and use the other side for rinsing things or cleaning the dishes.

Lori-
I am talking about the double sink in the kitchen. Keep in mind that I'm not looking at the high end RV so these double sinks are quite small. It looks like you couldn't fit a regular size dish in any of them so why not make it one single sink.

And the RV's I'm looking at definitely do not have the double sink in the bathroom. I do have that at home, though and it is nice

I've always believed that the reason for kitchen double sinks is obvious. And, I see no reason to change.
However, I would never insist on his and hers sinks in the SAME bathroom. I much prefer his and hers BATHROOMS.

We remodeled at home 20 years ago with Corian & went with a single. At that time they said they had never sold/installed a single. We loved it as we cook large & use large pots/pans. I was thrilled when the Dutch Star already had a single. I have no issues washing dishes in a single.

DW hates them too. She wouldn't have one in the S&B. Puts up with it in the MH.

You're certainly not alone. Two years ago we replaced our double sink in our stationary home and if I can find a single sink to replace the double in our new (to us) coach I wouldn't be able to install it fast enough.

I have double kitchen sinks in my rig but I think they are larger than most I've read about in this thread. I have double sinks in the S&B and like those too.

Have a single at home and a double in the coach and I'm completely indifferent about either one.

In our MH one side of the double sink is used to keep things in like the tea kettle and cups that will be used the next time we stop. The other side is left open for use.

I thought about covering one side to provide more counter space, but that's about as far as it's gone. Covers are easy to find and would also be easy to build.

We have doubles at home and in the MH and prefer that.
