Do Laundry On The Road With A Travel Trailer Washer Dryer Combo
Even though most travel trailers currently come fully equipped with virtually everything to make your new home on wheels just as comfortable if not more comfortable and convenient than traditional homes, there are certain appliances that rarely come as standard travel trailer equipment. These are mainly the clothes dryers and washers. There are several reasons why this is the usually the case. The first case in point is that with limited space, not many people are ready to give up living or storage space for a laundry closet. The other reason why this is the case is due to the fact that laundry facilities are readily available on the road with most RV parks offering laundry facilities at a minimal fee.
However, one can easily buy a unit and have it fitted. The two in one combo unit which washes and dries in the same unit is bound to take up much less space than the stacked unit. When choosing your combo unit, there are certain factors you need to take into consideration.
You can either opt for the vented or non-vented option. The vented machines normally need to have a hole made in the wall of the travel trailer for its exhaust vent. This is important because during the drying process, the machines take room air, heat it and then tumble the heat through clothes before exhausting it to the outside. On the other hand, the non-vented machines heat some air inside the drum before tumbling it through the clothes and creating some steam within the drum. It then uses cold water to cool outside of the drum. This then condenses the steam to water before pumping it into the trailers drain and holding tank.
It is important to know though that the non vented models use more water and it takes much longer for your laundry to dry than if you use a vented washer dryer combo. There is also the compact stackable washer and dryer which can handle around a twelve pound load and can easily dry clothes while they wash. It is an ideal choice for trailer owners who are remodeling their units and can therefore build a closet to easily accommodate the relatively larger size profile of these units. Though not so common, it is the preferred option if you have the space and need some extensive laundry work in your trailer.
The biggest disadvantage of the stacked units is the size which can take up to twenty four inches in width as well as a full height closet to effectively house the unit. The unit is also a tad more expensive, costing at least thirty percent more than the combo units.
