washing machine

Postby Val n Rob » Thu Mar 31, 2011 8:28 am

:hello:

good morning all, does anyone have one of those small twin tub washing machines to use while out camping? If so where did you get it from and how much did you pay for it? I have been looking in some of the camp stores looking and are yet to come across one. I am a bit wary of getting one off Ebay, ( i brought a couple of things here and they were not what i was lead to believe they would be)
Any ideas pls ??

Cheers Val

Hi Val

I have a Companion EzyWash Portable Single Tub Washing Machine that I the end of last year from Inside Outback for approx $99. I think they had the twin tub also. I went with the single tub so it would fit in the trailer and have also used it at home for small loads. When I was looking there was a few companies selling the single and twin tubs.

Cheers

yaaaaaay i have found one, went into a caravan place at Port Macquarie and they had one. It was the shop model only one left and i got it for $150. I was very happy. I have had a bucket and plunger, but find it hard to wring the clothes by hand.

Thanks everyone for your input, most appreciated.

Stevo, did you check out Tent Worlds link, they have a picture of it. It's going to make washing really easy as long as there's enough water!! One thing you can run the outlet hose into a lge bucket and save it for the next wash if necessary. For once I'm looking forward to getting some washing happening!!

yeah i saw the tentworld link, i just thought, "camping, washing, what?"

then the specs "240v" so you'd most likely be at a crapavan park, .... i guess it'd be good to have in a camper bus/motorhome and on 12v solar.

Used my new purchase this morning. loaded it with three t.shirts, 3 lots of underwear, 3 hand towels and a couple of face washers. Didn't want to overload it. Washed them for 6 mins, rinsed and spun them out - fantastic job. Next load did a pair of jeans 1 t.shirt and 4 place mats. Worked well I am very happy with it. Used front loader washing powder so it doesn't froth up too much. Didn't change the wash water cause the clothes weren't really dirty. Machine will run off our Honda Gennie when we are out.
