We have ours washed,waxed and detailed every year when we winter in Florida. The company that does it on site cleans and treats the roof with UV protection,washes and waxes the rig,treats the tires. Cleans and treats both sides of the awning. They charge 350.00 for everything 30' and larger.

Disappointed in Destin/PCB FL

I have tried for 3 consecutive years to get my coach washed and waxed in June in Destin/PCB. I booked well in advance and then they did not show up or they canceled/postponed. Even the ones recommended by the RV Parks. I heard all the excuses; sick, hospitalized, running late, etc. I had to just do it myself when I returned home. Good luck in this area!

I hose it off every once and a while. Never have waxed it. Keeping it under cover is the best bet for paint and decals. If the front gets to bad with chips etc., just repaint it.

I have a Blue Beacon app on my phone and get a wash everytime I find one - truck and 5er. Usually runs $40 or so.

We wash but not up for waxing.

You've got a lucky coach

See if you can find the build date and go from there.

I get ours polished and detailed annually at CDI (Forest City, IA) when we're at the Winnebago GNR in July. Their work is exceptional and within the price range mentioned in other posts here. They cannot wax though ... some conflict with their paint shop and chemicals.

They are also great at resealing roof perimeters and fiberglass body repairs (don't ask about that please) and paint.

I wash it at the end of every trip and during if I am at a place that allows it.

I waited 90 days before doing major paint correction, polish, and ceramic coating.

Attached are before and after.

I have an on board pressure washer and DI water system so I can do my own washing.Click image for larger version

I found a service in Palm Desert that did mobile washing of my 2018 DutchStar. I tried to hire him to wax but he said it was too new to wax. Go Figure!!! An honest man that talked himself out of work. I was told the original factory finish should last at least two years if not more, depending on climate.
