    Question Washing clothes on the road...

    Okay, this is a question for RVers. Where do you buy those portable washing machines you take on the road to wash clothes? I have a daughter asking about using one in an apartment. It's now costing $4 a load to do laundry. She figures at $600/year to do laundry the portable washers might be a better deal. She just doesn't know where to go to shop for them...

    I use a manual washing machine called a wonder wash...
    I can't post a link, but you can google it.
    We have camped for a month at a time and it is a real saver!

    Okay, I read that other post quite easily, the one that said, if you could, you had a weird mind. To prove it, I read the subject line on this one, and thought: You can't wash on the road. Roads are notorious for making things dirty!

    If you aren't in a hurry craigs list had a couple listed awhile back, I almost bought one but didnt want to spend the extra money at the time. Maybe you could write a post under "wanted."
