National with W/D?

Hi folks,
I've been researching Nationals and like what I hear but I'm curious if there is a 2005 or newer, 34 or 35 foot model that comes prepped for a washer/dryer combo?
Thanks!

IN 2003 it depended on the floorplan, may well be true in later models.

Maybe.....pull out a drawer in the midships cabinet and see if the ABS piping is there.

My 1999 Tradewinds was plumbed for a W/D behind the drawers across from the shower.

Check the posted items at National RV Archives and review the different floorplans.

I've done that however I find many of them difficult to read.

Thanks to everyone else for the useful info! Seems like it was an available option on some Dolphins.

I believe all of the coaches were built with the plumbing installed in the area where the washer/dryer would be installed. Remove a couple of drawers to check.

That's interesting in that the 2007 brochure doesn't show it as an available option.
A special order perhaps?

Not special order. The washer/dryer is optional but the rough in plumbing and electrical is standard. I have the LX model. In the bedroom there is a corner closet and TV. Behind that is the water and drain piping and a duplex electrical outlet. In the rear clothes closet is a small door on the left wall to access the electrical outlet and water.
To install the washer I guess the shelves are removed and the washer put in its place. I do not have the washer; just the electrical and plumbing.

That is good to know.

It seems as if with most brands the W/D is a dealer installed option so it makes sense to have the plumbing and electrical roughed in at the factory. Makes the install easy.

DaveG39, in 2007 it seems as if there were two models of Tropi-Cal, the T330 and T340.
Which do you have?
