How common are fold-up vs "standard" sinks in wet baths?

Exactly what the title asks: in RVs, what type of sink is more typical or common, or which would I be more likely to find: fold-up sinks, or "standard" sinks with the basin fully built into/attached to the wall or some other surface? I'm particularly thinking of wet baths here, especially since I assume those are probably more variable in sink styles and amenities compared to the "normal" setup in dry baths. (As for RV size/type, if that's an important factor in answering, probably consider a Class C on the larger side.)

And even just in general, how common actually ARE fold-up sinks (I feel like, relatively speaking, I don't really see or hear about them all that much, even in wet baths)? Are they considered particularly typical for RVs/wet baths at all or are they more of a "special case" sort of feature?

That’s true, I have noticed most Class Cs tend to have a dry bath, although there are some that still have wet baths right? I know I’ve seen a few. In an RV with the general size/style of a Class C—for those that do have a wet bath—would they still be more likely to usually have a sink fixed to the wall or other surface even if it’s in a wet bath?

I honestly can't say that I've ever seen one in a modern motorhome. Maybe in the little ones, with fewer frills, but IMO they send the "cheap" message.

I’m not super versed in the common differences between them, but what about motorhomes rather than towed campers? Do the self-propelled “vehicle” RVs (motorhomes and the like, not sure if there’s other terms for them) not usually have fold-ups for bathroom sinks compared to smaller, towed camper spaces?

We have one in our T@B400. Works well.
