Our last coach had the stacked washer and dryer in the rear bath's corner. We thought it was a perfect location but it did vibrate a lot as there was only chassis below. Our current coach has it in the mid-ship hall. Same washer and dryer and it is much quieter from there. Since it is on the full wall slide, there is plenty of room to spread out the piles (around the corner into the bedroom). It is over the water waste tank, and supported to the rear by an axle. Twice in our previous coach, the water fittings shook themselves loose and caused water to leak. For that reason, we were very open to a mid-ship location when we looked for our new coach. Although it has worked well for us, I do understand why the rear corner is preferable for many.

Good luck with the search!

"Fencebuster".....Good point about the fittings shaking loose. I will add that to my yearly service and check them.

One unique thing about our installation is that the dryer is a 240 volt unit so we can only use it on a 50 amp pedestal or with the generator. I think we'll like the quicker drying when we ever get to use it! We had a combo unit in the Dutch Star for over 10 years and never used it once! We were never out long enough to run out of any of our clothing. Maybe someday when the grandson is 18 (15 now) and gets out of school we can get away for longer periods.

The A/C model you describe is the 42W (mid ship washer/dryer location), which is what we have. They also have a 42T floor plan that moves the washer dryer back behind the rear bath into kind of a walk-in closet.
