For me, I see no need for one. We're still at the stage where RV-ing is vacation & I don't cook when on vacation. Most all eating is done off of paper disposables. What isn't disposable is in small enough quantity where handwashing trumps a dishwasher. Besides, even after 30 years of trying to educate, can't seem to get DH to put his dirty dishes in the dishwasher at home so he isn't going to do it if there were one in the coach anyway.

We would much rather have the storage space. With just the two of us (and eating out a lot) it would not get much use. Also, the D/W already has a dishwasher she brings from home, plus the dish washer is one handsome guy who also drives. She has it made!

We have the dishwasher and love it. We eat out a lot and use paper plates for most meals. That's what makes the dishwasher great. We each use a cereal bowl each morning and silverware during the day. Along with glasses, it takes us about 3-4 days to fill the dishwasher. No more dishes in the sink, no trying to wash in those little sinks. The dishwasher is perfect for storing the dirty dishes and then run it in the evening. It's soooo quiet, you have to look at it to know its on. The next morning we empty it.

One more reason to love my Pace Arrow. We have the L shaped kitchen counter and the L shaped couch. As you stand in front of the sink, you are looking straight at the T.V. My wife washes dishes and I dry. I catch up on the news and before I know it the dishes are dry.

This is the dishwasher we installed in our 5er. We full-time and would not be without the dishwasher. For the two of us, we generally was the dishes once a day and it does save water.

We use bachelor plates (paper) oven is used for storage, I do not even know if it works. Red solo cups that I rinse out and use the same cup all day then toss it. We do not have enough dishes to justify having a dishwasher. It takes 10 minutes at tops to wash the dishes we have. Crockpot is the one item that we use a lot when camping. It does the cooking while we do the camping. If I was full timing I would have a washer/dryer over a dishwasher.

And you can buy liners for your crock pot that makes cleaning a snap too. We use ours a lot. Would rather have the storage space than a dishwasher.

Real important in my world. Heck, she even cooks and cleans toilets too.

I would lose too many gadget drawers if installing a dishwasher. Gotta love your gadgets.

You can store your gadgets in the dishwasher....... Just don't turn it on until you empty it first 😜
