Welcome!

Ralph K..First of all - Welcome to iRV2 and the Excel forum!

You asked about Performance & capacity...I think the best place to see many answers about this is going to be in this forum .. you should do a search for washers and see what shows up.

You also asked about the $2500 cost - my question to you is "If your wife asked for it - do you think either of you will be happy without it?"

Good Luck with your choice...and we do hope to you visit and post here often!

The one big condition my wife had in looking for a trailer to fulltime in was that it had stacked washer and dryer. We bought our '05 Excel used in '07 and it had a Majestic washer and dryer, which with a couple repairs lasted us until this summer. I pulled them out took them to the junkyard and bought and installed whirlpool units on sale from Best Buy in New Hampshire [no sales tax]. I adapted the bottom front vent on the closet so it was removable and added a platform for the dryer to sit on for easier removal

The creatures in laundromats and their dirty clothes insure we wash in the rig. In our MKO we had stackables. In our current rig we have a washer/dryer combo. I preferred the stackables but the little combo has heart and does almost everything. Personally i would never go back to the laundromat if I did not have to.

I have said in the past that I tow MY bed bugs behind us. That also goes for the laundromats, I tow MY washer scum behind us. I don't need to go into a motel or laundromat to get other peoples THINGS, I have my own, Thank You very much.

Just curious. What is the approximate wash time on the stackables? One of our friends has a new "2009" class C with an unknown brand of W/D that is energy efficient. She claims the washer takes 2 hours to run a load!!! Not wash and dry.....just wash. Don't sound right to me. Anyone?

We had a non-vented combo in our previous MH and IMO, it wasn't worth the cost or space it occupied. Took forever to wash/dry a small load of clothes and even then, the clothes were still damp. We checked into the stackable units at Sears, Lowe's, etc. and the price is much cheaper (our Excel is already prepped).

Rockhead,

My DW says it takes no longer than 30 to 40 minutes to wash a load with our whirlpool in 'take it easy'. Also about the same to dry a load.

Tomas, I've always been told that "Quality" is valued more than "Quantity"!

Tom,

I am always busy with the "honey do's" like you will have to fix breakfast, make yourself a sandwich for lunch, get something out of the frig for me, fold the clothes, fix this, fix that,etc. I do not have time to do "woman's work".
Sure hope the DW does not read this
