  1. Hi Jess!

    You should have no trouble replacing your sink with any of the stock at Lowe’s or Home Depot, just make sure you get the right size or larger. Your mobile home sink likely uses clips under it but you could place a regular ole sink with a lip around it as long as you get the right size. Replacing the faucet is the harder job between the two but if you buy the right fittings you should be fine. Just take a photo of the lines under your sink and Lowe’s should be able to help you.

    Let me know how it goes!
