The used 5th wheel we just purchased does not have a dishwasher, but I believe it was an option. Has anyone had one installed after market with success?

Besides the sacrifice of space, it seems like a decent upgrade, especially if you are lazy like me and planning on full-timing for an extended duration.

If so, what was the install cost?

Thanks in advance

Not what you asked, but we just use paper plates, bowls and cups. Mostly only have to wash the silverware.

Dishwasher are becoming more common on some boats/yachts and I haven't read anything except positive reviews. I would appreciate a dishwasher more than the oven which I never use.

Shouldn't be a problem if supply, waste and power are in proper location. We have one but use it to store dog treats. Wife says she never had one can't see why she would need one now when there are only the two of us. Also you need a reliable water, sewer and power something we often go weeks without.

Can't wait to see the posts from the so called "true" campers who will state this violates some camping code!

To each their own!

I don't know where smarty came up with the silly camping code! If you want a dishwasher then install one.
Just remember, china type dishware can weigh quite a bit. Don't need your upper cabinets crashing to the floor because of weight.
DW opened a cabinet one day and a glass antique serving tray fell out hitting table and breaking into a million glass shards. Thankfully no injuries. Just plasticware for us now on.

I put a Vesta in the North Point. We really like it. Also very nice having a place to put the dirty dishes out of the way.
