What do you guys think of having a washer/dryer in the camper? We are not full timers, just weekend getaways and maybe a week or two at the lake. We are talking over $1,000.00, that is a lot of quarters at the local laundry mat. Susan has hinted it sure would be nice to have one, while we are playing in the lake, a load of laundry could be washing and dried by the time we get back to the camper. I dunno.

I have heard that it takes a long time to dry and the units are very small so they can't do too much at one time. In addition they fill the grey tank pretty quickly. Just stuff I've heard we don't have them.

We have a friend that has them in their camper. They are slow and take up a lot of gray water space. They use the quarter ones at the camp grounds it is faster and handles bigger loads

Information I was looking for, Thanks! I did not even think about filling the grey tank up. Now I can spend that money on something really important, a new digital TV!

The larger ones only clean/dry 3.0 cu ft of clothes, about 12-14 lbs worth. At a thousand dollars you can use fill a swimming pool with coins!

Go get yourself a nice flat panel Sony Bravia or Sharp Aquos. I have both at home and in the RV and they are great LCD TV's.

hi, we considered one, the splendid, washer and dryer are small, they make vented and unvented, the vented is much better, Searsmakes a stackable that is bigger and will fit in the space provided, but you need to be hooked ito sewer to use them, for the cost and for the extra weight unless your full timing I think the laundry at the campgrond works just as well, plus to your advantage you can send her to do laundty and you get the bonus of some quiet time....our friends have one in there MS and it is also a pain to winterize..

I have a closet that would house a stackable W/D. In my opinion, I would not buy the all-in-one W/D. I also would buy the stackable w/ vented dryer. I do have full sewer hook-up at my seasonal site, and the campground does not have alaundry facility. I am too thinking about this. I have to take my 5er over to Topeka, to the Crossroads Plant to have some warranty work done, and while it is there, Randy is going to put a dryer vent in my closet... I have the 35SL floorplan in the Paradise Pointe. He said there is nothing to doing this and has done this for others. We'll see.

I have the spendide washer/dryer combo that is the non-vented. *I have it on my boat because there are no laundry facilities in the middle of Lake Superior. * On land I NEVER use it. *It takes a tremendous amount of water and the clothes don't really get dry. *If I were to do it again I would get the vented type but I doubt if I would ever use it on land. * Unless you are in the middle of nowhere I wouldn't bother. *It's capacity is just too small, takes too much water if you have a tank and just isn't worth the effort if you have a facilities at a campground.
