I don't have one but loads of people on our site have them in their sheds.

I remember one forum member (you know who you are) saying that he had one in his van and everytime it was on spin cycle, the van vibrated like mad lol.

I will see if I can find any info for you.

Here are some links:

If you type in 'washing machine' in the search facility then you will find quite a few threads about them.

I don't know if mutt in talking about me regarding 'vibration' but when we lived in a van we had a washer plumbed in. We had to put it where the fridge went and the fridge stood in the lounge doorway. When it went onto the spin cycle the whole van shook. Not only that,it suffered a leak and damaged the floor underneath it. Not advisable in a van really.

Having a leak is what we was worried about but thought as it was already there should we just leave it and to be honest i think having a trip to the laundrette is part of the fun of caravan holidays,think it might have to go....

Hi, what I think would be more useful (in place of the washing machine) is an A rated undercounter freezer from Argos @ around 129

I'm defo getting one, AND a matching A rated larder fridge (no freezer box so more room for wine and BEER@ 119
Roll on the summer guys
