Can anyone tell us how good or not so good a combo rv washer dryer might work and how big of a load it might hold? Any suggestions on Brand names and or model number

small loads. Long dry time. Most are 120 volts. Do not expect the results you get at home using a 240 volt dryer. Think double time. Work in a pinch.

x2, we have one in our 96 Southwind. You described it perfectly.
I would rather have the combo than nothing at all.
A vented dryer is the best option.

The unvented models do not dry, they take clothes to just damp, and take a long time to do that.

This will also cause high humidity in your rig.

I have been full time for 9 years with a Splendide 2100XC in my 5'er and simply would not be without it. Does it only do smaller loads - Yes, but who cares? Just run it a bit more often. Does it take longer to dry - Yes, but who cares? Load it, turn it on and come back in 3 hours or so to remove items. Does it wrinkle more than larger units - Yes, but who cares? I'm retired and don't need to impress anyone. Wrinkles can be reduced by using dryer balls and removing items promptly when dry and not overloading.

With all of this being said Would I rather do larger loads and faster while sitting in a laundromat with a bag full of quarters - No!

Enuf said.

X3 on the 2100XC vented. If you take items out before starting to dry and fluff them up after the high speed spin and then before completely dry...no wrinkles.

Our new rig has stacked units and the DW would rather have a combo and the extra storage.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

We have a Splendide vented combo. Works great. Yes, small loads. And takes a while to dry. But we just put in a load of laundry, set it to wash AND dry, leave to go about what ever we have planned, and come back later to a clean dry load. And repeat if necessary. We never sit around waiting for it to finish.

Separate units might be nice but our combo does a great job. They spin like a mad dog and need to be solidly held down.
