The Splendide combo units are around 150 lb.

We half time and would not be without a washer dryer.

Most laundromats suck and cost an arm and a leg. Not to mention often have pet hair and other stuff from not you.

We have a Slendide combo vented. It works well but slow and small.
My wife found that if you stop after washing, take the clothes and shake, put in and dry you have way less wrinkles.

Our in laws have the small stacker and it’s faster as you can wash and dry at the same time.

That’s what I would wish for next RV.

Once you have owned them you will NEVER go back!!!

Just imagine the disgusting things people throw in the washer! They do so because it isn't theirs.

If you ever spend any applicable time in “laundry hell” you can’t appreciate the value of owning your own equipment. It’s not all about you. Think about someone else.

One reason we fulltime is our Splendide. Wife said 36 years with her own W/D she wasn't going back to laundromat. We went with the all in one unit to save space. We have a small freezer next to it which serves us well.

While we don’t full time, we travel 4-5 months a year. We had the Splendide washer and vented dryer (side by side) in our DRV, now have Whirlpool stackable, vented washer and dryer in our Continental Coach. The Splendide was OK, but the dryer was 110 and took FOREVER to dry most anything. I much prefer the Whirlpool set I have now, just be sure to investigate how the manufacturer installs the units and that they are securely stacked.

I know from doing laundry at our son’s apartment that the single unit that washes and dries takes a really long time to complete a load. Like most others, I would not be without my own.

It looks like the poster got his/her answer as to what to buy.
