RV Washer and Dryer (Maybe)

Did you know an RV washer/dryer combo is available? We have one and it is a life saver at times. You know those weekends when you go camping and everyone has clothes to wash or dry at the same time?

I have dealt with my share of waiting for the campground washer or dryer to get emptied so I could use it.

Most campgrounds have a laundry room between or close to the bathrooms.

Although it costs between $1.00 and $2.00 to wash a load and then another $1.00 or $2.00 to dry them, getting someone to get their clothes out of the machines seems to be an issue.

I have seen clothing sitting in the washer a full day without anyone laying claim to them.

The same with the dryer.

When you put an RV washer in your camper, you can wash and dry your load anytime you want to. Then if you decide to leave your clothes in there all day, you can.

If you want to be "green" and reduce your carbon footprint, you can choose to dry your clothes on a line outside, too.

There are several different brands you can get. Some are fairly expensive, but if you travel, you will be glad you have one.

Three Examples

Let's look at some of the most popular ones.

It uses no quarters!

Just plug it in, fill with laundry, add soap and water and close the lid.

It'll get a load of socks and underwear fresh and clean fast.

It is quiet and super-portable and weighs under 9 lbs. The load will need to be air dried, so you may need an .

I don't have one, nor have I tried one, but for a small load, it looks like a dream machine!

You can use it outdoors or indoors. No mess and no fuss, is the way to go for very light loads.

Compact Portable Washers

Now let's look at a .

This RV washer has a stainless-steel tub for loads up to 6 pounds.

With 3 water levels and 3 wash cycles, it will wash a full load.

It also has electronic controls with LED indicators.

An easy-installation kit comes with a quick-connect sink adapter.

You don't need to connect extra hoses! It measures approximately 17-1/4" by 17-3/5" by 30".

That means less room to store it, but you do have to move 59 lbs. into the kitchen or bath every time you want to use it.

Now you have a washer/dryer combo to choose from.

Washer Dryer Combo

This combo is super silent due to the brushless AC motor delivering a class leading capacity, performance and quietness in a space saving package.

It makes a perfect RV travel washer.

Getting started is as simple as choosing a wash cycle, setting a dry time and pressing start.

The extra wide door opening makes loading your laundry load easy.

The soft touch electronic knobs turn easily which displays the up-to-the-minute cycle status.

Laundry aids are added automatically and water levels are adjusted to maximize efficiency.

The bi-directional drum rotation reduces fabric wrinkling and improves wash and dry results.

The super-fast 1200 rpm spin helps heavy cottons dry up to 20 percent faster and a self-cleaning filter removes lint automatically.

It operates with a 15 pound wash capacity, 11 pound dry capacity, 10 wash cycles, 3 dry cycles, and a dry time selector.

Extra options like water temp, low heat, low spin and extra rinse tailor the cycle. Energy star efficiency saves 40 percent more water.
