7 Best Class C RVs With Washers And Dryers

Space is at a premium in motorhomes, so, understandably, many Class C RVs with washers and dryers are hard to find. But everybody has to wash their clothes. Unless you want to do the whole “down by the river with a washboard thing,” you’ll need to add rolls of quarters to your RV packing list for the campground’s laundry machines. 

If you don’t want to dump a ton of money into a Class A motorhome, there are some excellent Class C RVs with washers and dryers or come with hookups out there. Sure, they take up some much-needed storage space, but it all depends on your camping needs and who you want to see your comic book character boxer shorts at the laundromat. 

These Class C RVs with washers and dryers are getting to be pretty high-tech. While the general RV population has mixed feelings about them, new technology is making them more energy efficient, and they’re finding ways to consume less water. 

We have a handful of Class C RVs with washer and dryer options for you to sort through that may fit your budget or RV lifestyle. 

Do Class C RVs Have Room for a Washer and Dryer?

Some bigger Class C RVs generally have room for a washer and dryer. Standard-sized and Super Class C RVs are monstrous, after all. Class A Motorhomes run between 25’ and 45’. However, the below-listed Jayco Seneca is a cool 39’ on its own. The only reason it’s called a Class C is because of the chassis it sits on. 

As far as everything else is concerned, it’s more than big enough to rival any Class A Motorhome. That’s the thing with a Class C—some are too small to justify a washer/dryer combo, leaving it as an option. On the flip side, some are enormous, with more than enough room. 

Are There Any Class Cs That Come with a Washer and Dryer?

Some Class Cs come with washers and drivers, but many just include hookups (as an option). There are some Class C RVs with washers and dryers, but you’ll find a few on this list. 

“Super Cs” are Class C RVs built on a larger chassis, like the Freightliner chassis or the Ford F-550 (the E-450 and F-350 are considered standard Class C chassis).

A larger chassis means it’s more likely to have the space and power for a washer and dryer. That doesn’t mean a regular Class C won’t have a washer and dryer, just that it’s less likely. 

Not everyone is thrilled by the idea of washers and dryers because they’re greedy for water and electricity. Washer and dryer combos that run on 120v power generally use less water and power. 

7 Best Class C RVs with Washer and Dryer Hookups

1. Coachmen Leprechaun 311FC

Our Pros and Cons

Dual Azdel lightweight composite sidewalls

Some may prefer a stackable washer drier over a walk-in closet

  • Engine: Ford 7.2L V10 Triton Gas
  • Chassis: Ford E-450
  • Length: 31’ 10”
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

The Leprechaun 311FS is a monster of an RV for a standard Class C. Coachmen included a washer and dryer combo space opposite the toilet. It has enough space in it to keep a small family in clean clothes as long as you stay on top of the laundry. 

If you’ll notice, the floorplan above makes it clear that it’s an option, so it’s definitely something worth bringing up if you are looking at the Leprechaun 311FS. This series has 11 floorplans, so there’s plenty of variety to look over. 

The 311FS sits on the Ford 450 chassis, with a ton of sleeping space. All that sleeping space means extra fitted sheets, sheets, comforters, and fleece blankets in the wash rotation. So you’ll be more than happy with the washer/dryer combo. 

2. Thor Motor Coach Quantum KW29

Our Pros and Cons

Dual A/C Units are nice

The bedroom TV isn’t centered

  • Engine: Ford 7.3L V8 Triton Gas
  • Chassis: Ford E-450
  • Length: 31’
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 8,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 7

The Thor Quantum KW29 is the only floor plan that offers the washer and dryer (not just a hookup). Thor didn’t skimp when it boiled down to customer demands. The final design could have featured just a hookup, but Thor hit a home run here. 

Outside of that, the Thor Quantum KW29 is a phenomenal motorhome with plenty of space throughout. The sheer number of cabinets and drawers is a standout feature, with plenty of counter space that includes an extension if you need even more. 

RVers that like to watch TV at night may not like the fact that the bedroom TV favors the far end of the master bed, but it makes the rear corner bathroom accessible while traveling. To compensate, look into mounts that have a longer reach for better placement.

3. Dynamax DX3 37RB Super C

Our Pros and Cons

Dark, warm, and welcoming aesthetic, including the MCD shades

Residential-size bathroom door strikes the wardrobe when the slide is in

  • Engine: Cummins 8.9L I6 ISL Turbo Diesel
  • Chassis: Freightliner M2 106
  • Length: 40’ 9”
  • Tow Capacity: 20,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

The first of the Super Cs on the list is the Dynamax DX3 37RB with a stackable washer and dryer. This DX3 is massive, so much so that Dynamax could afford to put in dual bathroom sinks. 

The living space is fantastic, and if you go with the washer and dryer option, they’re conveniently located in the closet cabinet across from the bathroom. The kitchen offers plenty of counter space with an extension, and the residential-size fridge is another plus. 

The hydronic heating system works wonders, and if you’re into the tech side of things, all the bases are covered. The Kenwood touchscreen dash comes with integrated Apple Carplay and Android functionality. 

4. Jayco Seneca 37K Super C

Our Pros and Cons

Spacious Rear Bathroom

The sofa doesn’t open up to a bed

  • Engine: Cummins 6.7L I6 ISB-300 Diesel
  • Chassis: Freightliner S2RV Series
  • Length: 39’ 4”
  • GVWR: 31,000 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 12,000 lbs
  • Chassis: Freightliner S2RV Series
  • Sleep: 6

Class C RVs with washers and dryers may sacrifice needed storage space, but it’s hard to tell in this Super C. The interior storage in this Jayco Seneca is enormous.

The Super C, Jayco Seneca 37K, has a ton of storage room, both underneath and within. Inside is roomy, including a tri-cushion sofa, and it happens to be directly across from the TV, fireplace, and entertainment center.

The kitchen has plenty of counter space, including an extension tabletop and more than enough drawers and cabinetry for a sizeable stock. Even the master bedroom is sizeable with a rear bathroom that’s surprisingly roomy, with the stackable washer and dryer setup across from the bed. If you do need extra storage space, the rear bathroom wardrobe has plenty of room.

5. Entegra Accolade 37K Super C

Our Pros and Cons

Huge overcab bunk that holds up to 700 lbs

Adjustable master bed button location is in a weird spot

  • Engine: Cummins 6.7L I6 ISB-300 Diesel
  • Chassis: Freightliner S2RV Series
  • Length: 39’ 4”
  • GVWR: 31,000 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 12,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 7

If you liked the Jayco Seneca, you’ll find a lot to like here as well because the Entegra Accolade 37K is a mirror image of it. Even the layout, down to the washer and dryer hookup across from the master bed, is nearly identical. 

The 37K’s engine, chassis, tow capacity, and GVWR are identical. The major differences include a power head lift master bed. You can sleep more on the drop-down cabover bunk and 93″ sofa. Honestly, these Super Cs are large enough that sleeping accommodations aren’t difficult to find. 

Jayco made the power king bed controls easy to reach by placing them in the center of the bottom of the overhead cabinets. And yes, the button will survive a few positioning disagreements with your bed partner.

6. Tiffin Allegro Bay 38CB Super C

Our Pros and Cons

Standard king with optional queen master bed

Dinette or optional seating is right underneath the main TV

  • Engine: Cummins 6.7L I6 B Diesel
  • Chassis: Freightliner S2RV Series
  • Length: 39’ 4”
  • GVWR: 33,000 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 12,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 7

The Tiffin Allegro Bay 38CB has bright aesthetics on the interior that just screams “luxury.” All in all, the layout pretty much matches the two on our list right before it, but the aesthetic is what sets it apart. 

The theater seating features a button control for automated reclining and a ton of overhead storage. The counter space is exceptional, and the washer and dryer hookup in the back is for a combo washer and dryer. 

The sofa features a built-in air mattress that folds out with the bed, and even though the listed sleep number is 7, you can probably get away with more. The stackable washer/dryer is conveniently located across from the bed and includes a hamper, so you can do all of your laundry while practically standing in place. 

7. Renegade Verona LE 40LRB Super C

Our Pros and Cons

Woodstock cabinetry color combination is incredible

Swing-arm TV is huge and gets in front of some of the cabinets

  • Engine: Cummins 8.9L I6 L9 Diesel
  • Chassis: Freightliner M2
  • Length: 37’ 1”
  • GVWR: 34,000 lbs
  • Tow Capacity: 20,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 5

The stackable washer/dryer is located at the foot of the master bed, a little more out of the way than in previous entries. Once you walk in, it’s to the left of the stairs, and there is a good deal of space around it in the Renegade Verona LE 40LRB.

Make no bones about it; the Renegade is a luxury Super C to its core. Even the TV is a monster for the space it’s in—a 50” 4K LED Smart TV at that. Storage is immense, and every room in the Renegade has a spacious feel to it. 

The hydronic heating system is fantastic for those cold winter nights, and the ultraleather furniture is even more comfortable than it looks. 

Pros and Cons of Having a Washer and Dryer in Your RV

If you’re new to RVing, you might be surprised to know that washers and dryers aren’t always that popular. That’s mostly because of how much it drains the freshwater tank and the level of power they chew through. Technology is changing, however, especially as manufacturers try to meet growing demand. 

Pro: Convenience

The argument over power and water consumption is completely valid, and it’s a discussion worth having as technology improves. However, there’s no denying the convenience of not having to come up with ulterior methods to get the laundry done on a long vacation. 

Con: More Water and Electric/Fuel Usage

As mentioned above, this is a major deterrent to keeping a washer and dryer in a Class C. Right now; they simply aren’t suitable for boondocking. They just require too much in the way of resources that RVers can’t provide.

Pro: More Time to Play

Pros and Cons of Having a Washer and Dryer in Your RV Pro- More Time to Play

The best part about Class C RVs with washers and dryers is no waiting at a laundromat or campground facility. Also, you don’t have to conserve quarters in mason jars. For some people, that’s more than enough to justify the inclusion of a washer and dryer. Today’s RV washer and dryer units use less water volume and wattage. 

Con: Takes Up Space and Weight

The issue of choosing a Class C RV with a washer and dryer has an undeniable, valid argument about taking up space and adding weight. RV manufacturers attempt to overcome this by building the washer and dryer section into bedroom slide-outs or other convenient places.

Yet many come with just the washer and dryer hookups only, so you can decide if you want to add the appliances or use the space for extra storage. Ultimately it comes down to what suits your needs best.

Pro: Can Be Cheaper

The aforementioned mason jar full of quarters comes to mind again. Some laundromats charge an arm and a leg per load. This is especially true if you build up a ton of laundry between visits and want to hit up those mammoth industrial machines for $5 a load. 

Con: Usually Pretty Small Capacity

Speaking of a ton of laundry, you just can’t do that much with these small machines. They’re enough to get you through as a couple. If you have family-sized laundry loads, you’ll have to break them up into smaller load sizes, so you don’t overload the washer and dryer. 

4 FAQs About Class C RVs with Washer and Dryer Hookups

FAQs About Class C RVs with Washer and Dryer Hookups

1. Do Washer and Dryer Hookups Add Value to a Class C RV?

“Value” is a word with many meanings. It may drive the price up the tiniest amount, but it’s more valuable to the person who wants it. If you have no plans to boondock or spend any time away from campgrounds with hookups, a washer and dryer may be very valuable to you. 

Statistically, less than 5% of the RV community currently wants an RV with washers and dryers. Not all full-time RVers with Class C motorhomes choose to have a washer and dryer on board.

2. Can You Live Full Time in an RV Without a Washer and Dryer?

You definitely can, and a lot of RVers do just that. They either do most of their laundry in campgrounds or local laundromats. There are also a lot of options for off-grid living, including low-power or even hand-operated washing machines. You simply hang your clothes up afterward. 

3. How Much Weight Will a Washer and Dryer Add to a Motorhome?

Washers and dryers can add a maximum of 150 lbs in most cases. Combo units cut that number in half or even more. 

4. What is the Smallest Class C RV with a Washer and Dryer?

The smallest Class C RV with a washer and dryer is the Thor Quantum KW29, on this list at 31’. The Leprechaun 311FS is close behind it at 31’ 10”. 

Is it Worth Having a Class C RV with Washer and Dryer Hookups?

It’s worth having a Class C R with washer and dryer hookups if that’s what you want. If you don’t want it, there are a ton of Class C RVs out there that don’t have them. However, just because it comes with a hook-up doesn’t mean you have to install a washer and dryer in there later. You can always leave it as is. 

RV washers and dryers are made for motorhomes and travel trailers, meaning they consume less water and don’t use as much electricity. They still use quite a bit, however, and it might be worth holding off as the tech improves. After all, there is more than one way to get your laundry done.
