Washer and Dryer Install? Tips

Hey all, has anyone installed their own Washer and Dryer in their Berkshire?
if so how did you get it into the Coach? and what brand did you settle on and how do you like it.Front door seems only 22.5 inch Hmm and would the screen door removed give more room or disconnect the door at the top to allow to swing fully open? but there is still that lip at the grab handles.
our friend is wanting to do this and i said i know just the people to ask
oh he is thinking on the Spendide that's at camping world.
Thanks for any help guys.

And using a fork lift, lift it up and slide it through... Not something for a novice I'd think..... I know I wouldn't tackle it...

I installed a Splendide in ours last spring. It was tight going in the door, but it did fit. We had to lean the passenger seat all the way back and go over the top of it. On the BH floor plan, it was actually a tighter fit going through the rear hallway past the refrigerator. We finally found the right angle and turn combination combined with muscle to get it through. If your going to have one installed, I'd recommend you take a close look at the cabinet where it goes. I decided to add a piece of wood under the floor and extra support members to hold up the weight.
