If you buy one online, try to find a dealer not too far from you, save some money on shipping that way. I ended up finding a sink at a Habitat for Humanity store, just had to trip the counter a little to fit. Got lucky on that one!!!

Here's a question from a newbie... do you HAVE to buy a sink (or anything else for that matter) from an actual mobile home supply house? I understand some items in mobile homes are smaller, but even the kitchen sink?

Thanks, Ed

If items fit, go ahead and use them from wherever you can get them.
You have to verify sizes of replacements and not assume they are standard.

I found my SS kitchen sink had pinholes rusted through in one side. :o
My kitchen sink is 19". No room in the countertop for bigger.
Everything I could find in the store at LoweDepot was 21" or 22".
I think HD has one you can order that is 19".
I ended up finding some good sinks still in the kitchen in some trailers being used for junk storage.

My back door is 78" tall. Most "regular" doors are 80".
I'm pounding the header up whenever it warms up.
That way I can throw in a normal prehung door to replace the warping one that's in now.
