Ingenious

That is ecology at its best.

I can just imagine the results.

But I guess with balanced gear, new axles you would just have wet dirty clothes, right?

Hey Eric, I think Brandi told me that she won't waste the well water on your stuff. She actually digs a hole and buries them.

We have a '97 Airstream brochure that shows a Model 34FK Front Kitchen with an optional Washer/Dryer combination.

Anyone own or seen one of those?

One of the reasons we purchased our 34 was for all of the storage space ... especially clothes. We have a washer and dryer at our house .. so we're not too keen on going back to laundromats when we start fulltiming.

It will be jeans and t-shirts for me the entire time. I figure I'll be able to go at least two weeks (if not longer) worth of wearin' before we have to go mingle with the teaming masses at LaunderLand.

The campground I am currently in has 3 coin operated washers and 2 dryers. Almost never have to wait to use them. I either go early in the morning, or late at night.

I've solved the laundry problem: I just don't wear clothes when I camp! This also keeps several sites beside us empty. And now that I am losing a bunch of weight from the holiday madness, the view should be better...

Before settling on the solution above, my wife and I have one of those netted draw-string bags. If your laundry is damp, this bag allows air to sort of let things breathe.

On our trip out west for a month about a year and half ago, we stopped to do laundry at the laundrimat. My wife did the wash, and I folded and drank Belgium beer.

beer

Try the Irish beer next time. Enhances the laundry experience even more.

But I would go to extremes to avoid spending time and money in another noisy and crowded laundromat. Or is this just part of the camping experience that I should learn to grin and bear?

Airstream sells motorhomes with an optional one-unit washer/dryer. They run about $1,000 and work best with small loads. Drying is lengthy because they only have 120 volts available (not 220 volts like at home). Your own washer/dryer sure is nice when traveling for extended periods.

A word of advise:

Sort thru all of the clothes you are taking and standardize on 2 colors. We did Blue and White when we full timed. This allows you to take it to the laundromat and use the industrial size machines (2) and your wash is done in one load each. Then you can split it up to dry. We could do all of our laundry in less than 2 hours and would go 2-2.5 weeks between trips.

Laundry safety tip

We have a mesh covered, collapsable, wire framed, laundry basket. You can get them at target.... It works on the same principle as sun shades - coil and fold. It expands as it gets fuller and is square. It fits in the bottom of the wardrobe closet.

Laundry safety tip: Slightly used laundry is usefull for padding extra beer/champagne bottles - besides who would think to look (protection from marauding bands of thirsty beer plunderers). Just be sure to remove bottles before dumping clothes into washing machine...

We use a large rubbermaid container. We keep it outside under the awnings and use it as a table while we camp. When it is full I take it to the wash house. When we are on the road we use it to store breakable stuff and stuff we don't want bouncing around the inside.

Works for us.
