You have great timing, since we are installing a another dishwasher in the 32 footer today, just as we did almost exactly a year ago in the 29-footer. It has been one of our favorite additions. It is quiet and does a great job cleaning, using a fraction of the water hand washing does-- and the built-in water heater means it isn't affecting any showers etc. It's a win-win for any Airstreamer. We don't always use all of our appliances, but we DO always use the dishwasher. Since it doubles as dish storage you can argue that it takes up no room at all. Some clever carpentry and plumbing and you can make your dishwasher seem as though it had always been a part of your Airstream! Plus, it's fun to show to SOB'ers who ask to see the inside of the airstream-- they are always shocked! But it's a great addition to the airstream.

Thanks for that commentary. The DW, uuhh, dishwasher (machine, not dual title) looks just that much better than ever before.

Are you putting a dish drawer underneath the cooktop? That's what I did it fit perfectly!

We generally like to camp without full hook-ups - but having a dishwasher on board sounds really, really tempting. Doing the dishes after dinner gets old quickly.

I might have to figure out what the water consumption vs hand washing is. We've got the space available where the microwave usually goes.

That is exactly what we did in our 29 footer. We put the dishwasher in the original microwave space. We have more dishes to wash than most campers due to the number of people in our family, but the amount of water we save is staggering. The best part (besides the time saved) is that the built-in heater means we don't drain the trailer's water heater.

I should clarify: the original microwave space was not under the cooktop.

That's really good to know. I'll measure the space available once the snow subsides, and if it fits I think that'll be our next modification.

I just showed this to my wife, fully expecting to be laughed at, but all she said was "genius. When can we get one?"

I just talked to CanAm and while they're busy getting 40 trailers dug out of the snow and prepped for the London RV show, meaning they're too busy to dig mine out to go and measure, they seem to think this should be an easy addition to make.

Our trailer has a space for a huge 1980's microwave next to the kitchen that we have been using for general storage - we don't even own a microwave at home, so have never missed out. That space should be a perfect fit for a dishwasher, they'll send me a quote in two weeks time.

If it works out, this will be a real upgrade.

I'm weighing this decision now. What did you decide?
