Default Installing Laundry Chute

Has anybody installed a laundry chute into the "basement" storage?

If so... What did you use for a chute door?

Jimmy Johnson did not have enough closet space so he moved the washer and dryer to the basement of his Marathon,that would be a good place for the chute to deliver the goods.

My old 1982 Executive had a set up like that. In the back closet there was a hinged door that you opened & then dropped laundry down a chute to the back storage compartment.

Nothing wrong with getting those stinky socks out of the coach.

But then Patti has to go outside to get Steve's dirty socks and bring them back inside to wash?
If I had Steve's dirty socks in my coach I'd want a chute that would open up to the highway

That would be "Highway Cleaning" instead of "Dry Cleaning" ?

David having a easy access laundry chute is a great idea. I have seen some laundry chutes that were done in coaches that led to a basement compartment. Places you could consider - the washroom or in the closet floor?
