Caravan Washing Machine FAQs

How do I know what size washing machine to buy for my caravan?

Selecting the right size washing machine for your caravan depends on available space, weight capacity, and your laundry needs. Here’s what to consider:

  • Space: Measure the allocated space in your caravan for a washing machine. Compact and portable models are best suited for the limited space in caravans.
  • Weight: Consider the weight of the machine and its impact on your caravan’s total weight capacity, especially when it’s filled with water.
  • Capacity: Think about how much laundry you’ll typically need to wash. Portable washing machines range from about 1.5 kg to 5 kg capacity, suitable for couples or small families.

Can you have a normal washing machine in a caravan?

It’s technically possible but not generally advisable to install a standard household washing machine in a caravan due to size, weight, and power consumption considerations. Compact and portable washing machines are specifically designed for the space, weight, and power constraints of caravans, making them a more suitable choice.

Where is the best place to put a washing machine in a caravan?

The best place to install a washing machine in a caravan is where it can be securely fastened, has access to water inlets and drainage, and does not obstruct the caravan’s balance and movement. Common locations include:

  • Bathroom area: Utilises existing water connections and drainage.
  • Under a bench: Saves space, especially if you have a kitchen area that can accommodate the machine under a counter. Ensure the location is accessible for loading and unloading and has a sturdy platform to support the machine’s weight and vibration.

How many litres does a caravan washing machine usually use?

The water consumption of caravan washing machines varies by model and load capacity, but generally, compact models are designed to be water-efficient. On average, they can use between 15 to 60 litres of water per wash cycle, with newer models tending towards the lower end of this range. It’s essential to check the specifications of the specific model you’re considering for precise figures.

What are the benefits of having a washing machine in my caravan?

Having a washing machine in your caravan offers several advantages:

  • Convenience: Allows you to wash clothes at your leisure without seeking out laundromats or other external facilities, saving time and effort during your travels.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Reduces expenses associated with using public laundry services over time.
  • Flexibility: You can wash clothes as needed, ideal for long trips or if you’re staying in remote areas without easy access to laundry facilities.
  • Space-saving: Compact models are designed to fit snugly into small spaces, optimizing the use of available space in your caravan.
