I use a combination of the ammonia approach (I use plain sudsy ammonia) and laundromats. I agree that the issues you list with laundromats exist. If I can find a laundromat away from the marina I use that. A lot depends on the marina ...
I don't believe it is any bigger than a 5 gallon bucket... maybe smaller. We disassemble it each time and throw it in our lazarette. Everything comes off. Handle and spigot can go inside bowl, the rest lay flat.

However, a five gallon bucket (required liveaboard equipment... snicker) has multiple other uses, while the Wonderwash really only has one. I always thought that someone ingenious could make their own wonderwash out of a 5 gallon bucket.
