Winnebago Vista 35F and Combo Washer/Dryer

We currently own a Jayco TT and have been looking at the 2011 + Winnebago Vista 35F. We really like the layout of that rig and it would be our first MH. The only apparent thing it lacks is a combo washer/dryer. Have any of you installed one in your rig? The research I have done seems to show that you can install one in the wardrobe closet nearest the rear bath. I would be interested to know if that is truly possible.

Why not ask Winnebago if it is feasible.
Remember you can do anything you want in your own MH.
If you really want that layout with a W/D the check out the Fleetwood Bounder 35K

Check with WB. Your coach may have come from the factory with pre-plumbing behind the wall someplace.

before you add heavy appliances to a gas coach you should check your cargo carrying capacity to see how much the added weight affect it, some gas coaches only have around 2000 pounds to begin with.

SuperGewl thanks for the recommendations. I have contacted WB and will report back what I find out. Also thanks for the recommendation on the Fleetwood.. very nice rig but a little more money than we want to spend.

Excellent point and I am certainly taking that into consideration especially how that weight effects that side of the MH as well as the overall weight.

I don't see anything in the Vista 35F floor plan that indicates an optional washer/dryer, so it probably isn't plumbed for it. Routing the water source and drains to an adjacent bath may be possible, but it depends on the nitty gritty details of access and where the lines run. You also need an available 20A circuit to operate the dryer. The washer isn't too bad and can probably share another circuit, but the dryer needs the amps. Plus, it definitely needs the 50A power option to do this.

Frankly, you should be looking at Adventurer if you want a w/d onboard. And maybe a bit longer too, since the w/d uses a substantial amount of space. The Adventurer 35P and 37F are similar and have the plumbing, even if the w/d is not already there.

We have a combo in our 2015 bounder 33c which might be more affordable than the 35k. We love our bounder.
