LaCrosse Solid Surface Sink Covers

for RV Guy and other LaCrosse owners. Our 318BHS trailer that we will be taking delivery on in a couple of weeks has a single piece sink cover. We have seen other trailers, online, with separate sink covers for each sink, which seems MUCH more functional to us as we would typically only need the smaller sink uncovered, except occasionally, and therefore typically have more counterspace to use as counterspace instead of 2 sinks exposed.
We have been told that Prime Time cannot get the 2-piece sink covers any longer. I just wanted to confirm with RV Guy that this was true (and if they might be available in the future) and if other LaCrosse owners have the one piece and just think I'm being silly and shouldn't worry about it.

thanks

You could cut the sink cover into two, separate covers or use it as a template to make a half cover from a hardwood cutting board.

Wei're looking to replace it with a cutting board cut to shape to fit one side or the other. We would more have counterspace and an open sink.

Hello - if your 318 has a single piece sink cover, there are no options for a 2-piece design from our supplier. Unfortunately, when you mount the sink under the countertop like you have on a LaCrosse, you start getting into a lot of custom variables such as sink size, the amount of reveal on the sink landing, countertop thickness, etc. We did not spec in a two-piece design for that application. Sorry.

I guess part of my confusion is your pictures on the Prime Time site for the 318BHS. It shows a 2-piece sink cover and in pictures from some RV dealers, online, I see 2-piece sink covers, so apparently the were being built that way at one time.

Regards,

You are correct regarding the pictures and that is what we use TODAY. That's why I said "if yours had a one-piece". The countertops today are from a different supplier that we changed to late last year and the pieces are not interchangeable.

Again, sorry for the confusion.

Mine did not come with any sink covers. Took a template to Tap Plastics and had them make two custom sink covers for each side. This might be a possibility.

Thanks for this. I've already identified a place locally that I might be talking to.
