    Hi all.

    We are considering buying a washing machine for the RV and we have been looking at the small twin tub, top loader by Pyramid Products. Has any one any experience with these or can any one recommend any thing else please. :thumb:

    plumbed into the RV drain and cold supply, had it for two years and no problems.

    Hi, I have the small twin loader, I think mine was the 1.5kg load, the newer ones are I think 2 kg, which would make a bit of difference.

    I went to Greece for 6 weeks this year, and worked out that I save 40 euros on using washing machines on sites etc. It it hard work though, as I tended to do to much in one go. It does take quiet a lot of water, so if wild camping this may be a problem. But the spinner is excellent for getting the clothes nearly dry. I also managed to run it on an inverter too, as the wattage/amperage is low.

    You can just about get one large towel in, or just one pair of jeans, but with the increased load you will get more capacity.

    Many people have these machines and for what they cost I think they are a good buy.

    Regards Pat

    twin tub

    hi,my wife bought one of these at the stratford show,we have been away for 6 weeks with my son and his wife and its been very good,the spinner as said gets the clothes nearly dry,she wishes she had bought one ages ago.the washers on sites are normaly about three pounds a go,plus dryer one pound but you have to use the dryers about three times.at a cost of £60 a great purchase.muz
