Washer/Dryer worth it?

We all spend time. Just in different ways. :-)

Dinner out , not a problem. Many places that we enjoy & frequent. We are after all on an extended vacation. You missed out on the " night at the casino " portion of the post. Now that's " The Rest of the Story"
Laundry 3 to4 times a month @ 4 hrs. on the casino floor , looking for a machine that pays !

Yep, but we spend 40-50 hours per week (both) working. Still working towards retirement.

30 years of vacation and weekend use, didn't have on-board washer/dryer, didn't need it. As full timers, wouldn't be without it.

We are (vacationers, 2 weeks once a year max than weekends)too, and the reason you stated why you don't need one is why my wife did. We had the washer/dryer combo in our first coach, now the stacker system. The single combo was useless to us, my wife likes washing the towels and linen before we get home. That way she can leave them in the coach all ready to go for the next trip. Do you need one? No, of course not.
Next topic, Dishwasher or not?

# 3... Our coach didn't come with one, but has all the hook ups and venting. Seriously thought about buying one until I read some threads on the hassles of getting them in the front door, moving them for repairs, and one more thing to winterize. We are working weekenders with enough clothes, linens, and towels to make it through any trip. I would like for the next coach to have stackables, as I hear that the all-in-one units don't wash a lot of clothes and towels take a very long time to dry... especially the ventless models.
