Washer/dryer for 390FL

I have a 2013 Berkshire 390FL that is prepped for a washer & Dryer, which we have decided we want to add. My measurements indicate a maximum of 61" vertical clearance to accommodate the stacked pair. The stacked pair offered by Camping World is to high to fit and we don't want to go with a combined unit. Would appreciate input from others who have washer/dryer units that fit into this unit. What brand/model and how satisfied have you been?
Thanks for any advice

Ok I have a 2014 FL. The washer & dryer are made by Ariston I did not measure them but I attach a couple pictures. They work great.

I viewed the Ariston stackables and could not find anything that wasn't 66" combined height, which is 5" more than my cabinet clearance. Since your cabinet looks just like mine would you be willing to measure it at your convenience and if it is also 61", please provide the washer & dryer model numbers if you can. I really appreciate this

My tankless hot water system is beneath the bottom of the cabinet, which precludes going any lower. That means the bottom of the cabinet is not floor level.

Never mind. A closer inspection of your photo vs my cabinet reveals that whereby the bottom of my cabinet is even with the bottom of the closet, your cabinet bottom goes on down farther than the closet bottom. That gives you the extra depth to accommodate the stacked units. Guess I will call FR and ask them what they had in mind when the prepped the area for a washer/dryer. Hope it wasn't for a combined unit since take sooooo long to dry. Thanks for your time

We had a combined w/d and removed it, too small, didn't dry very good at all. Got rid of the weight and gave it away to the guy who help us remove it.

You will hear both sides. We use ours all the time and love them. Sure it takes longer to dry. But we aren't doing anything that we can't wait for a bit.
