Camping Sink from General Superstore

I’m interested in this Portable Outdoor Sink from General Superstore.

Camping Sink

It folds up pretty small, but it’s still more bulky than the setup I have now.

I like how it has a real faucet and a drain. Since we are staying at campsites that have water and electricity more often, I would like to just be able to hook up to the water at the campsite and have a working sink.

Here’s a video with a horrible robot voice that describes the sink and shows how it works.

The biggest problem that I have with this sink is that it costs TWICE what I paid for my entire camp kitchen, but watching the videos gave me good ideas for making one of my own. What I really need to do is make a potable water hose that has a garden hose connector on one side and a faucet connector on the other.

2-Way Low Boy Hand Water Pump at Amazon.comI can purchase a RV faucet like this 2-Way Low Boy Hand Water Pump and if I can figure out a way to connect it to a potable water hose, it would work like a sink at home. Preferably, I’d love an easy way to connect it to my existing camp kitchen.

I still haven’t figured out how I’m going to create my perfect camp kitchen, but with every product I see, I get more and more ideas on how I’m going to do it.
