As this thread occurs with some regularity, I have noticed that it seems to be 50/50.


50% have them and are happy with their choice.


The other 50% does not have them and are happy with their choice

Hi Cyn! We would not want to be without a W/D, but that's because we do a lot of extended traveling and plan to try a year of fulltiming soon.

On the other hand, if we were doing mostly weekend trips with an occasional longer one, then the W/D would not be as important!

We fulltime. I hate the CG laundry rooms and finding a clean, decent laundrymat in town is a pain. The previous owner of our MH took them out and built shelves which I use for my pots and pans, etc.(it's in the kitchen), but I want a washer/dryer so bad. We are looking to trade and that is a must have in our next coach. That is the only thing I miss about not having a house any longer.

Can't you take out those shelves and re-install the W/D?

We are fulltimers 1&1/2 years we do laundry about every three weeks. I guess we used the space for extra clothes. 2 hours in a laundromat every three weeks is not a hardship.

Yes, I did consider that. But we are planning on trading coaches within the next 6 months so I decided to wait.

We use our stackables almost everyday and are very happy with them. We go through a lot of clothes with tennis, boating and kayaking. We have a new laundry facility within walking distance for 4 months of the winter but almost never use it.
When we had a combo unit the 110V dryer was a pita so we used it much less.

If there's one thing I hate while traveling is sitting in a hot sweaty laundry spending a half day and 12 bucks washing clothes.
We love our Spendide...

I couldn't understand why anyone would want an itty bitty washer & dryer. Until they came with our new to us coach. I'm a believer now, although, for much of our camping, we don't have sewer and won't use them. We will use them on our long cross country trips though. Since I schedule a full hookup stop every few days to dump tanks & fill with water, I'll plan to do a couple of loads then.

I've used the laundromats at various campgrounds and for the most part they are pretty bad....too small (I think mine in the coach hold more), expensive, dryers don't dry and I don't want to think about what has been washed in them.

They do take up space but we use the washer for a dirty clothes hamper too & I can see storing clothes, towels or blankets in the dryer if we were desperate for space. We don't full time and still have empty cabinets and so far haven't felt the need to stuff them full.

Thank goodness there is a choice and both camps can be happy!
