We have a 2019 Northpoint 5 Th wheel. We are contemplating getting a Washer and dryer..we already have hookups. Stacked or combo? Brand names and size.
Thank you

I am shopping for W/D as well. Based on some advice here I am looking at "apartment" units. They sell in HD and Lowes, and some run on 110 or 220 so there are options. They are much cheaper than a set of RV specific W/D. Like 1/3 the cost.

We've had both stacked and combo in different Class A's but DW (the expert) prefers the separate ones. Says it takes a lot less time when doing multiple loads as one load can be washing while the previous load is drying. No particular difference in how well either choice cleans. (The word from the washing God...LOL)

We had a Splendide combo which worked ok, but after it gave up the ghost, we decided to install an Ariston washer and a dryer.

One of the best RV buys we've ever done. It's faster than a combo unit. However, since the dryer is 110V, not 220V, don't expect it to compete with household dryers. But we're not in a hurry so it doesn't matter.

I have a combo unit, it's okay. If I replaced it or when I get another RV it will be a stacked unit.
I think you will be happier with a stacked W/D.

Stacked would be my vote.

We lived with a Splendide combo unit, external vent, for a couple of years full timing in a fiver. It worked great for us. When space is at a premium, having a single unit instead of two stacked up was rather nice, in our opinion. YMMV.

Splendide combo unit for us. We have the room for stacked units but would loose storage.

The current Splendide unit we have is 19 years old and all I have done to it is replace the water pump once

We have a GE Washer and GE Dryer Space Saver series. They were used for full timing for 7 years. We now use them on a limited basis. They are extremely quite, and virtually vibration free....you have have to turn off the television and listen carefully to see if they are still running. They also have a pretty remarkable load capacity. Also, they are “stackable”, 110/120 volt units!

As these are old units, I cannot attest to the quality of those produced today! Hopefully, the quality is remotely close to that of yesteryear! memtb
