Hi Has anyone found where to buy a washing up bowl for the odd shaped sink in the Stanway?

Don't know the sink in question OAP, but there are usually loads to choose from at most of the shows if you don't get one sooner.

The sink is a triangle of sorts. I have never seen a bowl that shape before.
Thanks for your reply.

Can you post a photo of your sink?

May be able to come up with a suggestion if I know what you want. We spent ages looking for one to fit our sink as precisely as possible, so we saw a good many varieties.

Should be a simple job to get a washing up bowl, eh?  shrugg

I don’t change van until Wednesday but the link above shows the layout. It may be that I have to make do with a very small square or round bowl to fit the middle bit.

Thanks

I know I'm only a mere male but I do my fair share of washing up. 

I get that you might want a plastic washing up bowl if carrying your crocks to the site sinks, but I'm presumably missing something as I can't see why one is needed when using the typical small sink in a motorhome.

Happy to be enlightened . . .

Hi Roger
I didn’t realise that I needed to justify why I was trying to source a washing up bowl.
Suffice to say that I am trying to find one and I thought there must be other Stanway owners who have tried.

Thanks

Uses less water which stays hotter for longer, and helps prevent scratching on your £50k sink.

ps to OP, suspect you may have to settle for a small round one.

Can't say for certain but it's probably a Spinflo/Thetford sink which if you look at the photo here, you will see it's not actually triangular.

The back 'point' is cut across so you may find a rectangular bowl to fit once you can get measurements.

Hi Paul Thanks for the link and yes the bowl does look like that one.
You are probably right I may have to settle for a rectangular, square or round which ever fits best.
Thank you for your help

Sorry for asking, I wasn't suggested you needed to justify, I was simply genuinely curious.

If I caused offence, please accept my apologies.
Roger
PS Thanks to Ploughlin for the helpful & friendly response, much appreciated.   up!

I use a bowl for the same reason, plus kinder to china and glasses, do not use plastic ones. I have bought one of those silicone ones it looks round but has one straight  side to it, fits better in my sink and when collapsed can stay in sink and the cover fits over it.the straight side goes next to the draining board.

 I do have two other plastic bowls, but the silicone one can put dinner plates in comfortably in the others they don`t fit.
