If you love to travel in your RV, you know how important it is to have everything you need packed and ready to go when you leave. But what about those situations that arise while you're out on the road? When you take a long hike only to fall in the mud at the end, you don't want to have to wear those dirty pants for the rest of your vacation. With laundry capabilities in your RV, you won't have to. Convenient and cost-effective, having portable laundry machines added to your RV could mean the difference between dealing with your dirty laundry or having clean, comfortable clothing for your trip.
Is there anyone who loves going to the laundromat? For most people, it's a chore they don't look forward to. But what if you didn't have to go? What if you could travel the country without stopping in a random town to clean your clothes? With an RV washer/dryer you can do just that. Having laundry capabilities right inside your rig is a convenient solution to an unavoidable problem. With this added appliance, you won't have to make as many unplanned stops and can wash your clothes any time, any place. Helping you avoid that frustrating experience of lugging your dirty laundry around in a hamper, finding an open machine, inserting all those coins, and then waiting awkwardly in one of the uncomfortable chairs until the timer is done, a portable laundry machine gives you freedom to choose where, when, and how much laundry to do. No waiting. No sitting around. No keeping coins around. Just convenience. And if you're boondocking, you might not even have access to a laundromat. When it comes to handwashing your clothes, you have to have a basin large enough to wash the clothes, twine and clips to hang them, and space outside your RV to hang up your clothes while they dry. Similar to going to the laundromat, this process isn't exactly the highlight of living in an RV. Taking up time and space, it's a chore that would rather be avoided and in some parks, it's not a possibility. With a portable RV laundry machine, you can keep your clothes clean while taking up less space and having less hassle. And, for the best advantage of having a laundry machine in your RV: you can sit and relax in the comfort of your home on wheels while you wait.
While it might be an investment initially, having a washer and dryer in your RV quickly pays for itself. Because you are not spending all of those coins at the laundromat, you are avoiding an expense. Plus, you no longer have to make sure you have coins lying around for when you go to the laundromat. Using less energy than typical models, portable washer/dryers also save you energy while you are in your RV. Saving you time, money, and energy, RV laundry machines are an investment that gives you back your comfort and sanity.
Even with these advantages, many people still highlight some potential disadvantages, the first one being weight. Though weight is a big consideration for RV appliances, there are several models that come in a lightweight option. And if you are set to get a laundry machine in your RV, the ones specifically for RVs are much lighter than residential ones. The second consideration is space. Space is a limited commodity in an RV and for that reason, many people choose not to get a laundry machine. If you are planning on spending time in your RV, however, laundry is unavoidable. If you don't want to go to the laundromat, you either have to take up a corner of space with a machine or several lines of space along with a temporary wash sink to handwash and line-dry it. The machine takes up less space and you have less to worry about setting it up and putting it back again. The third consideration is water and energy consumption. Compared to other models, RV machines use less water and power. And while it uses more energy than handwashing, it makes up that difference by giving you back your physical energy and mental energy.
Dirty clothes are unavoidable while traveling. If you're on a short trip, this might not be a problem. But if you plan on taking long trips or going full-time in your RV, you might want to consider an RV washer/dryer. Saving you time, money, and energy, these appliances are well worth it.
