Cloth Diapering and Full Timing/ Best washer/Dryer

Morning all. We are in the research phase of becoming new RV owners. We currently cloth diaper with my children. We also live in Italy so we are accustom to hang drying laundry. We have front load HE washers but they do not do a good job of cleaning diapers in general. I was hoping to get some valuable insight on the best top loading washer fit for a RV. We are most likely going to be purchasing one of the Forest River Sandpiper bunkhouse models. They are equipped for washer and dryer across or stacker which is what I think I would prefer. We also will be full timing in 1-2 locations for the year so hopefully hookups won't be a problem. Any advice or thoughts would be super helpful.

Thanks, Hannah

Plan on a stacker (space/weight). But a lot of full timers just use the laundry at the campgrounds. Reason is the limited size of the hot water tank, plumbing in an RV.

Good advice above but be aware the most campgrounds do not want clothing lines hung to hang dry laundry.

We are full timers & we bought a GE front load washer works fantastic. We didn't bother with a dryer I hang things on hangers & hang from the cupboard doors. I still can use the top half of the closet for hanging clothes. Even though the trailer was roughed in for a washer/dryer we still had to remove the bedroom door, the jamb on one side & the closet door to get it in. The smallest washer width is 24 inches & the opening without removing stuff was 23 1/2. Go figure
