I don't use mine in the S&B, have to force myself to do so every week or 10 days...so doubt I would do so in MH.

DW had to have. Full timing 4yrs now and use for storage. Do use once a month to make sure it still works and to clean the dog's dishware.

Wife said we will never get a coach with a dishwasher. Got a coach with one and she says it is the best thing about the coach. Would have to take it out of her cold dead hands.

We ordered out coach without the dishwasher. This is after 10 years in a 5er without a dishwasher. Got pot storage instead.

Absolutely use the dishwasher

We replaced the propane oven with a dishwasher after I learned how to use the convection oven. The dishwasher was only about 1/4" wider than the oven so it was an easy install. We sold the cooktop/oven for almost as much as the 3 burner cooktop & dishwasher cost. LOVE IT!!!!!

MH came with it and we thought we would never use it. Well we use it all the time. A dishwasher isn't to wash the dishes. It's to hide them until you are ready to wash them.

It's a Whirlpool apartment size unit and has been great.

I just put a Fisher and Paykel in my coach.

Don't use it everyday but for those times you really want to clean all the nook and crannies of something, a dishwasher works well.

I mostly hand wash but sure like having it when needed.

Great idea to use it as a drying rack! Never did thunk of that...

Ditto, don't have one, don't want one. Love the extra space.

Ours is the Vista, not the drawer type, and we love it. It is very quiet and does an excellent job. Two things my wife will not be without since we full time, are the dishwasher and the washer-drier. Her next best friend is the Roomba robot vacuum/

Ours came with a drawer type Fiskel Payal and LOVE it. We keep adding dishes and usually run it every third day. It's so quiet, you can't hear it run. We run the dishwasher and do our laundry our last night before going home.

I laugh when someone says they never want one or would use one, yet they've never had one. It's like someone arguing that crank up windows are better than power windows because they've never had power windows. Actually, their opinion in a post like this is useless!

As said earlier, we use ours, accumulate dishes all day, do a load in the evening after dinner. It is great to just throw them in there and head off for the days adventure.

We bought a used coach. Had a list, dishwasher was not on it. Found this coach with one, suddenly it topped the list. She really likes it.

I get you have more storage without it,,,,,,,,, but we don't leave anything home because we have it. Got plenty of room for kitchen stuff and a dishwasher.

I'm the dishwasher in our coach - and yes, I gets used everyday!

Now that the kids are on their own and it's just the two of us - we're finding we generate so few dirty dishes that we rarely use our dishwasher at home. Seems likes by the time we've accumulated enough dirty dishes to justify a dishwasher run - we've been reaching into the thing to "cherry pick" items that we tend to use regularly and hand washing them. We're finding it's more convenient to simply wash them by hand and be done with it. The dishwasher in the "sticks and bricks" gets used a couple times a month at best. The coach doesn't have one - and we're not feeling like we're missing it.

It depends - can you get rid of darned stupid split sink?

If you can replace that idiotic split sink with one large sink that you fit a skillet in (with it's long handle) then forgo the dishwasher.

If you are stuck with a split sink then get the dishwasher.
