PostSubject: Replacing sink with some shelving   Thu Jun 26, 2014 12:36 pm

Hi all

We have a classic Danbury sink / cooker set up. We find we don't really use this sink and so want someone to take this out and replace with some drawers so that we have some more storage space.

Can anyone recommend anyone in the South East that could do this?

thanks

Richard

Richard, your not far from VWKampers down in Sussex, might be worth speaking to them. They advertise on here.

Thanks Nick. VW Kampers said they can't help me as they don't have the Danbury wood..

cheers

I'd be tempted to not remove the sink tbh. It's a feature of the Rio conversion and by doing so you'll devalue your campervan. Can you not just fill the area with a Tupperware box of some description? You certainly can take out the water reservoir for the sink to make use of that cupboard space.

You could probably match the timber from a DIY store, after all it's a beach effect laminated style. You could then make it up to your own design, bespoke like!

We had a buddy box made locally and it was impossible to perfectly match the original wood. The one they made is as close as they could get it but it looks fine.

Scooby would also suggest the non-removal of the sink.
Doo you not have enough space with a Rio layout?

I third the removal of the sink. Think you need to keep it for the re-sale of this Van!!

It may be worth looking at a way to fit the shelvingvin a way you can easilly swap back to a sink if you do ever decide to sell.

I have a fold away sink fitted in mine and to be honest I'm with you, we never use ours either

I dont understand, where do you guys brush your teeth and empty your kettle? Campervans should surely have everything including the kitchen sink!
