Those that have washer and dryer in there 5'er

The wife and I were talking about getting one and I told her I will check in to it. What can I expect on getting one install and since I've already have the prep for it, it will fit right in? How much do they cost? Are they worth it? How much more do they weight? Whatever info you guys can give me it will be deeply appreciated.

Big 1 we have the same unit and have the combo washer dryer and the wife loves it. We had one in a older MH she says they are so much better than the older ones. Not sure about weight but has not been an issue. Fits in the cabinet great and very quiet.
Hope this helps.

I have the Splendide 2100XC in my Designer and it has worked flawlessly for the past 9 years full time. You get used to the smaller loads quickly, just don't overload it. The drying time is what takes the extra time since it operates on 120v vs 240v with a home unit - half of the available heat. Make sure your get the 2100 which is the vented model.

We have had the 2100XC for years now and DW will never ever go without one. The 2100 xc is the combo unit and weighs 148 pounds and on the spin cycle does rock the trailer a little bit but that’s no big deal. It may not be suitable for a family of five but for two people it’s perfect. Any large items like bedspreads blankets or even the rugs in the trailer we take to the laundromat when they need to be cleaned or to the kids house. The only maintenance we’ve had so far is to clean the lint out of it as it accumulates. We full-time in our fiver and travel between New York and Florida as snowbirds so it is part of our every day living. It adds a bit of normalcy to our every day life. DW likes the idea of putting the clothes in dry and taking them out dry. As Ron Popeil used to say set it and forget it.

We love having the washer and dryer. It makes things so convenient. You also don't have as much to wash when you get home.
We had a combo in the last trailer and now a stackable. We like the stackable much better.
Definitely get a vented dryer.

Look into putting a pan underneath. Also put these under it if you can https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kellett-Was...-Black/1078011

IMO; Splendide has the best look, options, and cost. WE had ours installed last year. Cost was $2100 out the door. It is a dual unit with external exhaust. I was nervous about the vent look but it doesn't even bother the appeal. Depending on the cycle we can get 4-5 loads in the grey tank but, we glamp (full hook ups) more than camp, primarily due to out Gerrard tankless water heater. We added the tripod to the front kingpin and it does help stop the spin cycle wiggle.

We love ours. It's a combo unvented Splendide 7100XC. I bought it slightly used for 150.00. Installed it myself with a water pan and the securing brackets. We use it anytime we have full hooks. We do loads daily when we have full hooks. Saves from taking extra clothes as well as less to wash when back home.

Ours is the stackable unit. Best investment we made. Clothes stay in our home and we know whats been in there before hand.

Probably my biggest complaint is that it spins so fast that my clothes are pretty severely wrinkled when they come out. Other than that our Splendide has been great. We even ran it a few times off full hook ups and it ran just fine off the water pump too.

Thank you for your comments. So what's the difference in vented and non-vented, is one better or not?

If I remember correctly the non-vented will cause more humidity in the camper since the hot air canít escape. It also fills the grey tank faster as the steam it creates drying the clothes has nowhere to vent so it condensates and drips into the grey drain. I donít think they are a efficient and requires more run time vs. vented. Thatís from memory 2 1/2 years ago so donít take it as gospel.

False, a non-vented does not add humidity. It also doesn't pull condition air from the RV and exhaust it outside. It does use a LITTLE more water as it's a condensating dryer, nothing to get excited about. It uses water to remove the moisture through condensing. They take LITTLE longer to dry but nothing to get excited about. I prefer the non-vented. It's all the rage in Europe for many years.
Plus, you don't have to drill a 4" hole in the side wall and pump your heat or AC outside like a vented model.

Mine doesn't, it's a condensating ventless. Now my unit at home does as it's vented. You do realize that air blowing out of the dryer vent comes from inside the RV or house, don't you? So yes, it takes your heated or air conditioned air from your house or RV and puts it outside.

Where do you think that air comes from on a vented dryer? Lol comes from the interior of your RV or house.

I’m all about the Fake News, although a LITTLE longer is one and a half to twice as long in the drying process from what I’m seeing. Cutting a hole in a camper isn’t scary and pumping heat and AC outside is a bit of an excessive statement. The minuscule amount of air either of these type of dryers use isn’t making a difference in the interior atmosphere of your camper. Unless of course according to the website the seals, filter or condenser/drain on a ventless has a problem and then steam will start being released into the room. Do the research and buy what fits your needs. And Europe can keep whatever is all the rage over there lol...except their pasta and bread....yum...
