I will be keeping an eye on this thread. Was wondering about a portable unit myself.

Know that you will only do small loads and they will take much longer than at home. I would do seperate washer and dryer if possible. Combo units are even sloer than slow and the nonvented ones will have a cycle time of 4 to 6 hours.

Wow, sure glad to have learned that the easy way (by reading).

Holy cow, that cycle time is way to long. The campground laundry looks real good to me.

We have the Whirlpool stackable units.... vented. As long as you keep the loads under control (2 sheets, 2 pillowcases, 2 towels, 2 washcloths and maybe a couple t-shirts), you will not notice much difference with your home units. BTW, it will only take a few ruined garments from the public laundry to make you want your own units.

We have a Splendide combo. It washes well but the dryer was slow even though it was vented. We bought a 110 volt dryer made for stacking for a song at a rv parts place that was taken out of a new unit. It works very well and we don't have to go to laundry mats.
I am considering a small apartment size front loader washer to replace the Splendide and simplify things and save some weight. DW wouldn't be without it.

We bought a LG apartment size unit which is non vent. The reasons we bought this unit was the larger size and longer warranty compared to the Splendide. We are now in our sixth year and have had no issues. Like others have expressed it does take a little longer but we prefer our own rather then the public units both for convenience and cleanliness. FYI
