We have both. W/D is a must. I stopped using laundry mats or shared laundry facilities in college. No reason to start again. The half bath is nice also. Gives us an extra sink and if you have guests over for dinner or drinks, it’s much nicer to have a lav midship so their not walking through the bedroom.

We use the W/D on almost every trip, we really don't care for laundry mats and we motorhome for fun so we wash clothes while doing more fun things. As for the bath and 1/2, this is our third coach with it and is always high on our want list.

We have been fulltiming for over 2 years in a 36 ft class A , single bath & without washer dryer . Our rig had a combo , we removed it & use that space for our laundry 🧺. We didnít like the idea of doing laundry every day . Also , we are workampers & in most cases free laundry or laundry reimbursement is included in our compensation.

We have stacked washer and dryer wow what a difference from when we only had the w/d combo we use to go home with laundry Becca use of the small and time consuming process of using w/d combo now clothes go home they way they came on hangers and clean

Love the washer and dryer itís so nice to get home from a trip with clean clothes. Plus you using the campgrounds power and water to do it.

Have the half bath and combo unit. A must in our opinion. At one time we never had ac in our vehicles and now I would not even consider a car without.

I doubt anyone that has a W/D and a half bath wouldn't recommend both features. We are firm on having both since we've realized how handy they both are.

We have the combo W/D and wouldn't do without it. We use it all the time when we have full hookups. We'll cycle through loads to catch up on the laundry. If you don't overload the unit does a decent job.

We love our w/d combo. I call it the magic machine. We put our clothes in it everyday when we go to bed and they are clean and dry in the morning. No piles of dirty laundry! But make sure combo is a vented unit. Have had unvented unit and the clothes do not dry. They just steam. We half time and would not be without it. I can see where 1/2 bath would be nice.

Some people don't like to lose the space that a W/D takes up. We find that we have plenty of space, plus with a W/D, we don't have to pack as many clothes, so need even LESS space! We wouldn't own an RV without a W/D. Not sure about the 1.5 bath as we don't have one, so we don't know yet that we can't get along without it!

We started with a 38 footer and found it too small for even part time.
An extra half bath would consume too much floor space for the benefit so we avoided it when we moved up to a 45 footer.

We have a washer/dryer combo and love the convenience of the washer but used a drying rack as the unit is too small to dry very much and takes forever.

If we ever need to replace it, it will be with a separate washer and dryer.

From our experience and what I have read on these types of post, is that a W/D will become a "must have" once you try it. We tried FT'ing for a year before we installed a combo W/D and now the wife makes regular comments about how much she likes her now "must have" W/D.
We figured that a combo works best for us since the time it takes to do laundry is unimportant, since we just throw in a small load and go about our business.
