Thanks for the ideas and advice. I hadn't given any consideration to the Vesta-sized washers but reviews look good and it would save space in a washer/dryer area so my DW could have more closet or storage space.

Hand washing and paper plates are fine with us for a few days, but not five or six months.

I sleep with my dishwasher. DW is a DW.

What did you do before you had a dishwasher?


Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I have to go along with the others, it's just us two so we have few dishes and we get them done in 5 minutes. Save your money for important things like eating out and entertainment.

My wife has a really good dishwasher - ME.

She is the cooker, I am the eater and dishwasher.
Sounds good to me.

I am of the same opinion that my family won’t survive only on hand washing and paper plates, because we did so for some time like a month. We used to do this and my wife was a dishwasher and I was a cooker, because I am chief cook [emoticon] But it was awful, because my dear wife was so tired after every meal. So I finally bought a dishwasher from https://ianboer.com.au and finally made our life better. We bought a big dishwasher which is very convenient for our needs, to wash all the dishes after a great meal.

Exactly. We started full timing 16 years ago, so haven't had a dishwasher for that number of years. We take turns, who ever doesn't cook, washes up. And I keep a dishpan in the sink to collect small items, so when I have to do 20 sec hand washes, I go ahead and do whatever is in the sink. Hands AND dishes are cleaned and rinsed, and life goes on.

This option looks like it could be interesting and not require installation... available only for pre-orders for now, though. Has anybody used something like this?

Snowbirds here -I would put a dishwasher in if I had the space, but I have built in cabinets in all the available space.
We solved the washer/drier problem with a dockbox directly behind the trailer and have regular home size ones from Lowes
I plumbed it from my water supply and into my sewer hook up and I wired it underground from my electric post
