I'll try to attach a picture.
What can I say - WOW! VERY impressive install! He reinforced to main RV support members; vented the drier out the back; accessed hot and cold water and the drain lines; accessed power - again, WOW!
After all that work, he/she still has to go outside to put the clothes in/out. Our Silverback FW has the W/D combo inside the front bedroom closet and all the work I had to do was sign the check to the dealer for the installation.

Seriously - that took some planning and engineering and looks good.

Seems like you loss a lot of storage space?

This is the machine we use when we go overseas (except it is 240V in Europe) and rent a motorhome which is smaller than the Solera. There are usually 5 to 7 couples (each in their own motorhome) and we share the machine. While we do not travel as a convoy we usually meet at night. Believe me it was a life saver in Russia and Turkey. Places to do do laundry, not happening! The machine preformed flawlessly for 50 days with 7 couples using it. Sure saves a lot of grief with the spouse on a trip that is somewhat primitive. Full hookups = electricity. Dave

As posted my TIMARTI, the machine is
Here is the link - two sizes, the smaller size has a video.

SEP GO ONLINE - Panda Twin Tub Washer (5.0kg/11lbs)

SEP GO ONLINE - Panda Twin Tub Washer (3.6kg/7.9lbs)Compact Washer Spinner Combo

It is not totally automatic. You have to fill and drain by switching the dial and move the items to the high speed spinner manually. It is a good little machine though. If you scroll down the page it will give you dimensions.
