Washer and Dryer fitting in 2016 Coachmen Chaparral

Has anyone installed a Washer/Dryer combo unit in the front bedroom (center closet) of a Chaparral? Specifically the 360IBL?

Did you have any problem fitting the washer/dryer through the hallways up to the bedroom? We purchased a combo unit and it measure right at 22.4" at it's narrowest side. What was/is the dimensions of your combo if you don't mind checking?

Thank you!

I have. I added a few notes here:http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...bl-148345.html

I had to remove the screw that holds the bedroom door from falling off the track. This allows you to open it all the way back. You need that 1" for your fingers/wiggle room.
It fits up and through the exterior door and hallway fairly easy. I removed the mattress and sat it down on the bed frame to connect water lines.
If you run the vent pipe like I did you need to be comfortable in a tight space. We have the splendide vented unit. Dimensions should be on their site.

Had all good intentions to finish my original post... Kids, and more importantly camping made me forget all about it. Guess I should get back to that.

Just spent a week up at Myrtle beach. No dirty laundry when we returned home, and sheets/towels are ready for the next trip! Having the washer/dryer makes it that much easier.

Thank you for responding. Would you happen to know the exact width of the opening in the front of the RV? We went with the Magic Chef 2.0 Ventless Combo and it appears to be a hair wider than some of the other brands, like the Splendide

Are you asking about the hall, or the location where the washer/dryer lives in the cabinet? There is about an 1" on each side of the unit in the cabinet. The hall was pretty tight. RV is at the shop for some warranty items, so I can't go measure it.
