Campground laundromat

To save space on packing, I thought it would be best to bring a bare minimum of towels and wash periodically in the laundromat. I was thinking that one towel per person and 2 wash cloths per person, plus hand/face towels we can share.
I was thinking we could reuse the body towels for two days, and I could wash towels, wash cloths, and face towels every other day.
Would four towels, 8 wash cloths, and two or three face towels fit in a standard laundromat washing machine?
I've forgotten what they can fit.

All the CG washing machines I have seen will accommodate that load. I have seen some older commercial washers at laundromats that had really small tubs where that load would be questionable.

After a while, you will see how much space there is in the 26BH and you can pack and adjust your load accordingly. The space under the dinette table is a good place to store items while traveling too.

Right now, I have the towels folded in the cabinet above the dinette. I could fit another set if I wanted, and I might do that and just wash every four days. Still deciding.
Clothes are thin enough that I can pack enough to bring all we will need, then just wash at home. But towels are bulky.
Glad to hear I should be able to fit a few days' worth of towels in one washer.

We keep most of our towels above the dinette too and any extras go in the cabinet over over the bed. Do the wardrobes in the new 26BHs still just have hanger bars or do they come with shelves now? One of the first mods I did was add shelving to the vertical wardrobe cabinets so we could stack and separate clothing.

We have a hanging rod in the wardrobe on the driver side of the trailer and shelves on the other side.
I'm putting our clothes for the trip in the two wardrobes. If I need more room for clothes, I plan to use the space over the queen bed.
I could squeeze towels in if I need to, but would rather wash towels and wait until I get home for clothes to be washed.

Maybe this is why I don't have any friends but I use the bath towel more than 2 times. My reasoning is I just washed with clean water and soap and rinsed off with clean water and im just drying off clean water. My towel is always dry before its next use and my trailer towel size is 24"X 48 " from BB and Beyond, this size saves valuable space that I need.

I am with you Tunce. Kids on the other hand, they are a bit messier and drop things. If kids are involved, I would carry a few spare. When we on an extended trip, we will stop maybe once a week to do laundry, ether at a CG or a laundromat. In our TT the hand towels get the dirtiest (kids).

After showering we hang the towels (clothespins) from the shower curtain guide rail. We also have command hooks in the shower to hang items too.

Believe it or not we use white towels in out TT. Not so much by choice. My in-laws years ago gave us a huge batch of white towels right after we had kids, and we where like "Really", so they sat in the cabinet until we bought the TT. When we were outfitting it, we said, well we have them lets use them for now. The're still there and they are still white.

No kids with us but our towels dry clean bodies and are dry the next day. We sometimes have to hang the hand towel in the shower to dry. The skylight seems to help. We use our towels and sheets 5-6 days.

Jeeeesh.....you're seriously considering using the laundromat every other day? That's not a vacation, that's.....something other than a vacation.

We just got home from a month long vacation and used the laundromat twice. Probably could've gotten it down to once if we'd packed better.

You'll get a lot more mileage out of your towels if:

Good point. I guess I might want to pack another set. That would get us four days. For some vacations, that would be all we need and we could wash at the house.
For others, that would mean two washer loads at the laundromat.
Trying to figure through it all.
