Just a question regarding the washer/dryer mounting space in the 36 RL/RE. I was watching a YouTube video and the chap mentioned that a residential style washer/dryer could fit in ther allocated space. Can someone clear that up, did he really mean apartment size pair or can you actual fita full-size pair?
Thanks!

Don't know for sure, but I would bet it's a play on words. That slide is a 24 inch slide and if I'm not mistaken a standard full size washer or dryer is approx 30 inches deep so I don't see how they would fit and be able to close the folding doors. Maybe what they are referring to is what you said "An Apartment size Washer and Dryer" Presently have the Combo Washer/Dryer and it's working fine for us, so we opt'd to have a Combo Unit installed in our RL, we hope to squeeze in a small freezer where the dryer would go.

The other thing to keep in mind is that apartment or full size will most likely require 220 and rvs are not set for that.

You're correct about the typical full size Dryer or you could get a Propane version, but I think most apartment size units are just 110/120 as not a lot of apartments are wired for 220/240. My Daughter had a stacked washer & dryer in her first apartment and they were both 110/120 units.

OK, here is the info on the Washer & Dryer.
There is no extra space in the Washer/Dryer closet. The fit of the Spendide pair is already tight.Both the Washer and Dryer are 23.75" A standard homewasher & dryer are both 27." Plus, the Spendide Dryer is 120v. Standard home dryers are 220v.
Lastly, Redwood will not preinstall the dryer vent unless they install Washer/Dryer on the line. So if you have full body paint, you'll be screwed. My dryer vent is in the middle of a color change on the side.

Like many here, my original plan was to add the Spendide models sometime after delivery because they're cheaper on-line. But remember that the discount that you negotiated with your dealer on your unit also applies to the options. After I considered purchasing, shipping, installation into that tight closet, drilling a 3" hole for the dryer vent through my slideout into the middle of my custom paint job and then having it stand out (ortry to match the paint myself), I ordered the option.

It's the same scenario as trying to beat the system on the generator option -the cure is actually worse than the disease.

That is why I went with the factoryinstall on the w/d and gen.

I did the same thing with the washer/dryer and many other options, but as the factory incentives disappear I image that margine will lessen to a point where you will have to think it over pretty hard.

Yea....and I got a little screwed on this one. I called 2 weeks before my trailer went on the line and ordered the washer and dryer. They said I waited too long so the dealer is going to install the units which means the vent cover will be chrome instead of painted. If it looks bad I'll have my son paint it.

I wonder what happened Dave I ordered my w/d and d/w plus the Gen prep the week before mine was to be built and when I was at the factory they were installed. I would make sure you get the same price as if they were done at the factory.
