We have stackable units from Sears. The dryer is drying when the washer is washing. In that regard, you are finished in half the time.

X2, as long as you have the space. If not, a combo is better than nothing.

A combination washer/dryer is GOOD, but a stacked washer and a dryer is
MUCH BETTER. That is what my DW says.

We have the combo. Is small capacity and takes a long time. Good for occasional use only, IMO. There are a couple good threads regarding W/D usage I suggest you read before buying either.

We're mostly weekenders with a week out here and there. We find that our combo unit works just fine for us. If we were retired and traveling more often, I'd guess a stacked arrangement would be a better choice.

We had a combo for the past 10 year and just bought a new MH with stackables. The dryer dries in 1/3 of the time, maybe less. A nice upgrade.

I've been trying to talk my better half into stackables, but she wonders what we'll do with the hamper we now have that rides on top of the combo. It's a valid point as to what do you do with the dirty laundry?

If you have room the stackable is much better. It cuts your laundry time in half. You can always find a place to store whatever you might have put on top of a single unit, somewhere else. IMHO

Thanks for all the responses. Looks like we will go with stackable, any recommendations? Camping World carries Arriston, has anyone had any experience with this make?

Hi Jam3504,
I have the combo unit and love it. Set it and forget it. Go sightseeing for the day. When one returns to the coach everything is done and ready to put away. If one stays on top of the wash and does small loads there is no problem. I have places to go and things to see. Having a wash day where one must stay at the coach and wait for the wash is not my thing.

We use the washing machine as our hamper!

XX2 We usually do a load every other day and we also use it as our dirty cloths hamper.
