I don't know if I'm going blind or what, but I can't decipher the pics well enough to tell if you've actually gotten the dishwasher through the door of the trailer yet.

Is one of those pics showing it inside?

I ask 'cause there's no way one would go through the door of my Trillium.

Don't feel bad - I initially thought that it looked like the appliances were sitting in the back of the trailer, not the front.

I think they all show it inside, other than the one where it is shown open on a deck.

The Danby countertop dishwasher is much smaller than a typical built-in. Turn it on its back and you only need 17" of door opening width.

Not southern - I'm in the Edmonton area.

Sorry. I thought you said southern. That's where I'm from. Just east of Lethbridge.

I don't know ...maybe I am missing something here, but I just have a Hard time with the Porta Potty that next to the food area.

The dishwasher might be a good idea,as for myself I don't use enough dishes when we are out camping,and would rather have space built for items I would want to store.

All that said the most important thing is it is Your camper so you should make it the way you want it.One thing for sure if you decide you don't like it one way you can always change it to be different. Just make it safe on the road,and as your home.

Good luck and Happy Camping

That "porta-potty too close to food area" gave me a bit of a chuckle, Lynn-
My trailer's so small that there isn't anyplace in it that isn't close to the food area!

funny!
I got a CD/DVD player today and it came with a remote! (Jensen DV2011), I thing I can stretch from wherever I am in the trailer and reach the player... Well!

Port a potty is an emergency feature. I plan to use campground facilities as a matter of course. Even when camping off campgrounds I plan the good old bush for #1 and #2.
That is why the Port a potty is usually stored out of the way, and only "deployed" for use.

Regards,
L

Ok you guys I'm glad I was able to give y'll a good laugh. Yes I know that in our little eggs you are always "close to"everything....even the P.Potty. What caused my concern was that in the pictures it looks like the porta potty is to be storied ON TOP of an ice chest. Now even IF it is used only in a night time or emergence time (To my health inspector brain ) that just screams danger.

Now I will admit that DH often has to remind me that I am retired and can now live a normal life and do not have to see problems that are not there,but I guess old habits die hard. So I will just go back to my room and hope I was seeing it wrong and it will be stored under a bench so that there is no danger of any leakage or spills around the food,and drinks,or food prep area.

Love this forum, we are all such good friends and can take the little teasing that is dished out with a smile and good cheer that it is meant to be...you guys made me laugh at myself and I Thank You all for that. I just felt I had to explain what I thought I was seeing in the picture and why I was concerned about it. Oh and just so you know 99.9% of the time I do wear my "retired hat" so don't worry if I show up at your camp sight for some coffee (or other adult beverage)

Happy Camping and fun Modding to all

But the potti lid doubles as a cutting board

I have never used a dishwater on a boat, in a camper, and I mostly hand wash at home as we have a third sink that hold two drying racks rather well.

Still I did see a two drawer dishwasher on a 59' yacht and loved the idea.

For a small camper that you are restoring, why not add whatever features you like. I expect it would hold up fine to travel

From a weight perspective it doesn't make sense.

I don't like the idea of using a toilet seat for a cutting board either. <grin>

port a potty leaks, odours?

I have to admit very little experience with the device.

Does a Port a potty leak/splash? I would have guessed the seals would do a good enough job for liquids.

As for odours, I agree, it can be dangerous to have a "loaded" port a potty, near the galley where it can make food preparation an uncomfortable activity.

Any feed back from port a potty users is much appreciated.

As for using it as a cutting board!!! OMG no!, the counter surface will be covering all these. The set um is only me mocking in parts and components for measuring and detailed design...

Thanks all.

I presume the "leak/splash" question is a while-in-transit one...

They're well sealed so don't leak or splash (if FLUSHED!)

They do sweat a bit in hot weather...you may notice moisture on the seat/lid- that's just condensation.

I thought that a dishwasher in a fiberglass rv was kind of a cool idea.

My experience is that dishwashers are generally quite light in weight and with very few moving parts, are probably not that susceptible to damage from vibrations and bumping around as the trailer is being towed.

The best thing about the dishwasher is that it will open up a wide range of new cooking opportunities for you.



Enjoy.
