We’ve had the single unit, Splendide, since we’ve been fulltiming. The unit handles smaller loads and it’s perfect for the two of us. I throw a load in nearly every day, which I don’t mind; I’ve always enjoyed doing the laundry and this machine is an enabler!

The company is wonderful to deal with.

We use the dryer on occasion. We air-dry the majority of our laundry. If you are considering this unit, I highly recommend the vented machine; it seems to do a much better job drying.

We went with separate 24″ Whirlpool units, front load washer for faster spin cycle, 110V dryer. Washer and dryer take full set of queen bedding in one load. Stacked them, tied down through the floor with cargo straps.

Moved the water shut off valves to the basement, so they could be reached in time of need.

Never considered a combo unit. IMO, anytime you combine units, you will lose functionality.

We have a single unit and it is really nice,Carol says it gets cloths cleaner than they have ever been. It uses very small amount of soap and water. It drys fast and cloths are warm, no burning your hands on zippers etc. It is a splendide also

We have a Splendid as well and love the unit. Usually do a load a day if we can if not it doesn’t take long to do several loads.

Sure beats taking the laundry to a laundromat in a rain storm and forgetting the softener.

The above link is a thread on this Rae Commonsabout washer/dryers, it may be some help to you in deciding.

Personally I would not have a combo unit, either vented or unvented. I would never enjoy taking that long to do a load of laundry. Original cost and cost of maintenance also makes it a poor choice for me.

Our front loading Whirlpool will do a king size comforter with no problem, and is a water and soap miser, has sensors for everything. I am sure it will be expensive for repair also, but by that time it may be time for a new unit anyway, and I can buy two and a half washers for what one splendide costs initially.

Our 220 Volt dryer makes a world of difference in drying time also.

Happy RVing.
