Full time RV living comes along with numerous hurdles and challenges and laundry can be one of them depending on your budget and needs. Getting you’re laundry done while living in a RV is such a dirty chore but unless you’re going to become a nudist, it has to be done. While leaving your house behind and exploring the fun life on the road generally reduces your household chores and leaves more free time to do the things you enjoy, laundry is definitely an exception to that. No matter where you live, at some point, you’re going to need to clean your clothes. Wearing the same clothes day after day will get them on the road straight to decline, no matter how much you feel like roughing it. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to wash your clothes and linens while RVing.
From laundromats and hand washing, to full on Washer/Dryer Combos, choosing a method for RV laundry while on the road can be a total pain to put up with!
The most common method that most people immediately think about is going to the nearest laundromat. Sure, it is a good idea. The main downside of using a public laundromat is obviously the fact that, you may have to sit around for a few hours waiting for your clothes to wash and then dry. Which is, obviously, to many RVers, just a gross waste of time. Instead of sitting there watching your clothes spin around, you could be using that time exploring the area or traveling on to your next destination.
Moreover, having your own set of laundry appliances on-board your RV is the most convenient and luxurious way to clean your clothes while traveling. Depending on how much space you have, this may or may not be a viable option. You can decide to have your own washing machine in your motorhome or just go with hand washing. Luckily, you can install a laundry rack system in your RV. Laundry rack is an adjustable multifunctional clothe dryer that optimises as much space as possible. When drying is over the rack is retracted into its sleek casing. It is the best option for RVers.
No matter if you do laundry through laundromat services or get your personal laundry appliances, it’s best to do small loads often. If you procrastinate and only do your wash when you completely run out of clean clothes, you can find yourself stranded.
