How to go about installing residential size Washer/ dryer

Hello everyone,
I have a 2008 Damon Outlaw 3611 with a 50amp hookup.
what we want to do is install a full residential size washer and dryer in the garage, so we don't have to stop at laundromats to wash more than just some clothes. from my understanding a 220V dryer is out of the question, but what about a 110V propane dryer?

any thoughts or products that can do this???
We are against any "compact" or "all in one" system as it just isnt worth buying if we have to do laundry every 4 hrs and still have to go to the laundromat for blankets and bedding.

anything is possible.

there are small stackables that work on 120 volts.
we have a unit splendid and its a combo. some say they take to long to wash and dry a load. not really. its about the same , but with a dryer and a washer, you can be washing another load while waiting on the dryer

we hang pants and shirts right out of the wash cycle and only dry undies, t shirts and towels

it comes down to your space, weight and what makes you happy.

we had 8 years of no machine and it sucked, so adding a machine was a big plus,

its only the two if us so larger set up was just not needed

If you have a 50amp coach, then you actually already have 240v power, though your main panel is likely not designed to allow a double-pole breaker, regardless, though some know ways of a work-a-round.
A propane dryer also 'could' work, but either way, you are going to have to do some 'honey-do-work' to make it happen, bringing over and in a propane line from an existing connection.
And, there actually ARE full size 120v dryers out there, but you have to run them twice as long, of course.

no matter which direction you go in, you'll also have to find a way to 'vent' it, though I imagine that with a toy hauler, that might be easier than most - just drop the back door!
