    I have a Brabantia one. We got it from costco. But I found this one in Dunelm for you , if your not a member.
    Its used a lot , weather permitting and outside 24/7. Its has not rusted in the 8 years we have had it. The strings are still as tight as the day we bought it. Knocks spots of ones ive had in the past and holds 3 washing loads :thumb:

    Ive also got a large Brabantia ironing board , bought at the same time and im sure we will have it for donkey years . Its very sturdy.http://www.homebase.co.uk/webapp/wc...Number=793005&c_2=2|cat_31630470|Laundry+and+ (A lot cheaper at costco BTW:Wink:)

    I would say check that it has the fasteners on the bottom of the feet so it can be pegged down with strong tent pegs, nothing worse than them tipping over. They are available.

    I didnt realise you meant for the motorhome:Doh:
    If you want one for home , brabantia 's the best. Wouldn't have a clue for the MH.
    I'd go to the laundrette , or use one of the onsite facilities , if i needed to wash whilst away. Cheating i know. But the longest we've done is 16 days so far. Work still holds us for now........

    i do know of a few that use the JML Dry buddy but you need mains hook up for that.
    if anything of mine gets wet and just needs drying i just hang it up in the shower in the van but there is a hanging rail above the shower tray in my van.

    otherwise any of the rotary airers will work or even the old flat ones that you hang on the bottom of an open window.

    failing that as said get to a launderette and dry it all there.

    I use a Gelert rotary airer. It's only got 3 arms but I find that's plenty for even a large load of washing. Very lightweight but strong and has 3 ground pegs to stop it falling over. Cost £17.99 online around 18 months ago but can't remember where I bought it from.

    Most caravan shops sell them for around £20. when you are travelling for some time they are really useful and do seem to dry a lot quicker than the ones that hang from the window.:Smile:

    I did wonder as you said it was outside 24/7 but was going to ask how you keep it in the ground with only 1 stake !!:Blush:

    We bought a 4 arm dryer at a show for use with the van. It has rings/pegs to stop it blowing over. We also have one for indoor use at home which can't be pegged down; bought from Lidl, one of their occasional specials.

    Both work fine.

    We carry a 4 arm airer, but ours only had a single pegging point, however the legs are quite substantial so I have drilled a hole to take a peg through each leg. We also carry a twin tub washing machine (used in the shower) an ironing board and a lightweight steam iron together with the ordinary clothes line if anything is available to tie it too. We usually wash about weekly or fortnightly as we carry only enough underwear for a couple of weeks and Shirley insists on changing all the bedding weekly. :Eeek:

    Edit - forgot to mention the washing machine runs happily on a 500w inverter (not pure sine wave £20) so mains is not necessary.
