    Adding a washer and dryer?

    Has anyone added one or both? Looks like the only trick is cutting a 3" hole for the dryer vent.

    @Bill or Janice.... Do y'all have dryer vents in the brown/tan color available?

    Thanks for any input.

    I can tell you, dryer vents only come in two colors, white and chrome.

    I would buy a white one and paint it with the Krylon Fuzion for plastic rattle can.

    Install is pretty straight forward...

    I just ordered a washer/dryer combo to be installed Feb. 3rd. Hope it's all I expect.

    Re: Adding a washer and dryer?

    Out of curiosity, what is the make/model and do you know what it weighs?

    [/quote]I ordered a splendid, vented. I believe it is about 140lbs. I could be wrong on that. Last week Camping World had them on sale, with installation only $29.00.. Don't think I'll find a better deal anywhere else.

    Hi Red

    We are shut down today and tomorrow because of snow and cold - crazy!

    Janice should follow up then. If not, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hi Red (@ el Rojo),

    We do not sell dryer vents through our Parts department, but your dealer should be able to assist you with this aftermarket purchase. Note: Marc said he's also seen black dryer vents which would match the black awning arms, etc., installed on our units

    Note: Our first Solitude fifth wheels where designed for a combo washer/dryer; however, when we redesigned the front closet it included separating the washer and dryer. Now the front closet is designed for the washer to be installed on the curbside, and the dryer to be installed on the roadside (there is a label adhered to the inside front closet wall indicating where the dryer vent should be located). Please contact your dealer if you do not know which style of washer/dryer to install in your Solitude.

    Best regards,
    ~ Janice

    Thanks Janice. I'll look for a black one. I saw the label showing the dryer vent location. It's gonna hurt putting a big hole in the side of that rig!!!!!!!!LOL

    Re: Adding a washer and dryer?

    Janice... What is considered an early model? I have #107 and have a washer/dryer combo on order to be installed February 3rd. I'm hoping that it will be an easy install.

    Re: Adding a washer and dryer?

    Hi Jim & Kerry (@Gsport),

    Congratulations and happy camping! Generally speaking, I don't believe this would be considered an early model change. Rather, we redesigned the Solitude fifth wheel front closet approximately mid-to-late March 2013 as part of our ongoing commitment in providing better products by focusing on and listening to our family of customers. Enjoy your new washer/dryer

    Best regards
