Did you ever get around to this? The wife and I have been camping for a month+ now and have come to the decision that mid-summer, we avoid the oven at all costs. Plus, we both kind of loath handwashing dishes each evening.

We've talked about doing exactly what you talked about- taking the oven out and putting a dishwasher in.

It seems like it could be a fairly straight forward modification - my stove is fairly close to my sink drain and I have electric just beside of it for the fridge.

(For everyone else- I know this effects resale, and we're the oddballs, and etc. )

Off topic here, but don't you have kids? My 3 year old loves to volunteer to wash the dishes (with Mom or Dad's supervision to make sure they're clean, and we do the heavy or sharp stuff).

Back on track, yeah, I'd love to know what this mod would take and more importantly, cost. We use the dishwasher religiously at home and since we don't use the oven for anything other than a bread box, this might be a worthwhile investment. Our oven's right next to the sink (as in put the cover down so we can put the drying mat down to put the washed dishes on kind of close) so water's not an issue, and power's available just behind the stove.

Yeah, we have 2 kids - aged 10 and 2, but I'd still prefer a dishwasher. There are lots of reason not to do it, I understand that.

I'm not even sure what to go Googling for.. "RV dishwasher"? "Super small dishwasher"?

I know they make 18" dishwashers for apartments and such. May give that a try.

Check out Amazon - under countertop dishwasher or portable dishwasher. They have a bunch to choose from. If you find one that fits the oven opening, shouldn't be too difficult to swap the oven for the DW. DW meaning dish washer in this case - not the other DW (although I have tried calling her the dishwasher before - didn't really workout for me ).

Apartment Size Dishwasher from Sears.com

My Ex MIL (GRHS) put one of these narrow dishwashers in the space where a cabinet was in their seasonal mobile home. Ex FIL (GRHS too) simply removed the cabinet door, ran the plumbing and electrical...fit like a glove.

We've always done the paper plate thing. Wouldn't have a dishwasher if it was offered. My wife will tell you quick, that's just one more thing to break or leak. My wife is a unique individual, and very rare. With dishwasher, I'd still have to come back after they're done and deal with the dishes a second time. The items we do wash, it's washed, dried and put away, and there's no coming back to it. Even in our stick and brick house we sold, I hardly used the dishwasher as I hate coming back to unload the thing. Guess I'm different. As for the oven, I don't have the issues everybody mentions. I cook biscuits, pizzas and all sorts of stuff. I have a method, and it's not a stone, and I don't burn stuff. You have to become one with the oven. 9 times out of 10 though, we cook outside.

Washer is a neat mod, but nothing I'd do.

Thanks for the search tips. I'll take a look at them.

did not do it YET... but it is on the table this winter. we just brought home tons of dirty cups and utensils among other dirty stuff and put in the house DW because we did not to hand wash and we also use a lot of paper plates
