washer/dryer install?

Any toy hauler out there ever install a washer/dryer in there garage part. My husband is fixing to buy me a Splendide 7100 platinum from camping world. He doesn't like the fact that it is so short so he is thinking of buying a base cabinet from lowes and installing the W/D on top of it making it easier for me to load. Sounds good to me what do you all think?

I think your husband loves you very much to give up some garage space for a washer/dryer. Yukyukyuk.. Of course, he gets clean clothes out of the deal!

Well, I forgot to mention that all this is possible under one condition: he stated. I must leave him room for his Honda 1800 soon to be converted into a trike. So needless to say he is still out there measuring for the 100th time lol.

It's doable. You need a 120V outlet, hot/cold water connections, a 3.5" hole in the sidewall for dryer venting, and a 1.5" water drain for waste water.

We have a vented Splendide in our KZ Stoneridge Sportster (TH) that was installed by the dealer as part of the PDI. My suggestions are: 1. get the "close venting" kit from Splendide - it allows the washer to be mounted very close to the wall without kinking the vent hose. 2. be sure to slope the vent hose downward toward the outside of the trailer so moisture runs outside and not back into the W/D. 3. Also get the hold down kit from Splendide that anchors the feet of the washer to the floor of the garage - keeps the W/D from moving while traveling and while on spin cycle. Be aware that these washer/dryers do not work like the ones at home. Do small frequent loads, large loads will take forever to dry. The dryer only gets 120Volts, not the 230 volts like at home so drying takes a long time even on small loads. DW has best results removing clothes while still slightly damp to finish drying on the clothes rack - otherwise the wrinkles are brutal.
