The magic economy elelctric RV clothes dryer finally arrived!

As stated in a previous post, drying clothes is no joke when it comes to New Zealand RV life. In this post we look at the best of  electric clothes dryers and what the ideal features are.

The experience

Having owned a twin tub RV washing machine, again I speak from experience. It was a good machine that we used very seldom. You may wonder why, or maybe you know why. The reason is common. It is such a schlep to dig it out of the tow vehicle and set it up that we made use of the Adam and Eve way most of the time: That has NOTHING to do with what you are thinking, OK? We used the “plunger and bucket” method, until we found one of these.

Now I have a happy wife and a happy life again. I’m even allowed to sleep on the bed 🙂 LOL. So for those of you that are in the dog box, this is an ideal gift for her birthday, Christmas, wedding anniversary or just to get in the good books again (or out of the dog box?).

The product features

Mini spin dryer

The machine is mainly made from plastic for good reason:

  • It does not rust.
  • It is light weight (2kg).
  • It is tough and flexible.
  • It is affordable.
  • It lasts long.
  • It does not conduct electricity (safe to operate).
  • It spins very fast (1300 rpm) (Clothes dry within hours after spinning).
  • Spin time up to 5 minutes (quick).
  • 12v and 240v models.

Just click the picture to go to the product page.


We found that using this is so much easier than the twin-tub. You can set it on the kitchen bench and run the water into the sink or do the job in the shower tray/bath or outside. There is no mess. It dries way better than the slower running twin-tub dryers. It is not too fast that it will crease your clothes permanently.

If I had this when I started out on my motor-home/RV life, many days would have been more fun and less work.

Note: Always check the details of the product regarding your power supply. Many products are only running 110v!

  1. I just wanted to give my own review on this machine…. I LOVE IT! 😉 I use the “bucket and plunger” method for washing our clothes, but after I’ve rinsed the clothes, I just dump the whole bucket into this RV Clothes Dryer (without wringing the washing) and let the clothes dryer do all the work for me. 😉

    I spin dry everything in it, from delicate underwear to heavy men’s denim jeans.

    It never fails to impress me how quickly the clothes are drying after they’ve been through the RV Clothes Dryer. I love this little machine!

    1. Hi Sharlee
      Thank you so much for your comment. We found the same when testing the first one. How long have you had yours if I may ask?

      Kind regards

      1. Hi Noah

        I’ll have to lie if I have to tell you exactly how long, but about two years I would say.

        Hope it helps!

        1. Thanks again Sharlee. It is good to hear from a regular user having a good problem free run. It gives us satisfaction to see that we did our homework well before putting this machine on the site as a buyable product.

          All the best and hope to see you back soon.

          Kind regards

  2. Hi Noah! I really appreciate your blog because your reviews are based on your own personal experience.

    My washing machine spin cycle always leaves clothes half wet and that is pretty bothersome. And reading your advice of what has worked for you has a lot of value for me.

    I like the fact that this Mini Spin Dryer is light weight. And it has a pretty good capacity. But what I like most is that you have personally used it and can attest it lasts long. With all these positive points, I’m really surprised concerning how affordable it is. Thank you very much for this review.

    1. Good day Henry
      Nice of you to visit our site and thank you for your comment. We really try our best to only go for quality products and the only way to do that is through rigorous testing. I’m glad it was valuable information to you.

      Noah & the RVMega team.
