.......that is the question. Having just fallen off the turnip truck, are dishwashers common in MH's? What's your take on it? Waste of space, time, energy???? Or wouldn't want to do without it. If I could have posted a poll I would have made it simpler. Are they easyish to put in?
Thanks
Chris

We love our Paykel Fisher Drawer.....I dont know how easy an install would be but ours came from the factory....It's not real big but does a very good job with very minimal noise and water...I'd rather have it than storage...

We've been on the road for 4 months at a time and............... as long as there is a Costco we have dishs LOL. We use real silverware and some real plates and bowls but the majority are paper/cardboard chinette style.
Cost for 4 months worth of clean plates about 30 or 32 bucks. No big deal.

I and DW could care less about the Dishwasher. But if you are asking it must be something you would like to have. I think you will get many opinions here but in the end you are doing your dishes.

To us a waste of space and with a back ground in Appliance repair they are not worth the investment. If full timing a combo or stackable would be a more important luxury appliance to have. With two of us, it only takes a few minutes and little bit of water.

I am afraid my wife would agree with you, for the four of us.

My wife does the cooking, and I do the washing/cleaning up.

I think that our having shared responsibilities for meals, and both of us doing some meaningful amounts of work, avoids any thoughts that one of us is the household staff while the other just sits back and enjoys the fruits of her labor.

We bought enough dishes to stack on the counter for weekend's worth of camping. The home dishwasher then does all the work. But our retirement coach *will* have one. I'm not a fan of doing dishes while on holiday!

We ordered one with our coach when it was being built. It's a Fisher-Paykel and is very efficient. Is it an absolute must? ......not really, but I would rather have it than the storage as we have plenty of storage.

The FP dishwasher is high end and do not break down very often
I have one plus a stacking WD and would not want a motorhome without either of value additions
