I was thinking of a full size front loading set as well.  How much depth did they take up?  Where did you place the vent?  Just curious.  I'm trying to figure all this stuff out before I settle on a bus.  I'm thinking I may need to go with a 102" wide instead of a 96" wide.

I guess we just carry too much "stuff". We do not have room in our coach for a washer/dryer and do not want to leave any of our "stuff" at home. Heck, we have so much "stuff", we have to haul part of it in our Grand Chewrokee LOL.  We usually go about 2-2 1/2 weeks, then spend about 3 hours at a laundromat and we are done for another 2 weeks or so.  We have always managed to find nice (clean, air conditioned) laundromats. Whatever works for you situation. YMMV Just "our way".  Jack

I have a 102" wide (transit) and that extra 6" width really makes a big difference.  Now if you're putting in slide outs ($$$) the extra width isn't as important.

The Splendide is less then 24" deep.  Splendide makes three versions- ventless (which I have and has long drying times-with the clothes still damp after 1 hour. Hanging up for another hour inside takes care of that), vented (both of these are washer and dryer in one), and now they make a separated stack version-but runs on 120vac.  Good Luck, TomC
