Default Bathroom faucet source

Hi,

I'm helping a friend look for a new or replacement bathroom faucet (water tap) for a 2005 Airstream Westfalia. I called around Los Angeles, but so far no one has any idea where I can get one. I'm not even sure where to start searching on-line. The only identifier on the inside of the water tap is the printed word 'REICH'. In the attached photo, the water tap is #6. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Matt

Awhile ago, couldn't find an American source. Seems replacements have come from European stores (British or easier to navigate; also Amazon.uk and eBay).

The faucet has an integral electrical microswitch. The microswitch controls the fresh water tank pump to activate and pump.

Be careful to get right size for diameter of sink opening. Our model has an extendable hose, so also need to double-check model. Various models which fit. See links below. Also, can search threads on how to remove sink and the retaining mechanism for the faucet.

Please post whatever you find.

Thank you very much OldWest and Kiltym. This weekend I will try to figure out which one we need and how to order it, and I'll let you know how it works.

Update on the faucet: I ordered one of these off of eBay:

They shipped it out the next day, and it arrived about two weeks later. It was a perfect match; we installed it and everything works great!
