With proper wax and care, the factory finish will last 20 years plus!

The factory only puts a clear coat on, same as automotive paint. The difference appears to be the factory clear is very soft and easily scratched if washed wrong.

You should put a good wax on after 6 months.

Takes about ~3 hours and they come out to wherever we are in the local area. Took awhile to find them and can’t find anyone who comes close to price and quality.
I will be camping in Largo FL. in March and would like to get my RV done. Do you have a company name and phone number for the husband and wife team.
Thanks

We have ours washed maybe 4 times per year and waxed/detailed once per year. Check with the RV park you stay in and see if they recommend anyone who will come to you and wash it.
Washing will run you $2.50 to $3.00/sq ft and waxing $5.00/sq ft.

When we arrive in Yuma, AZ late fall we get Benjamin's Mobile RV Wash to wash and wax our 42' HR Scepter. For the good Carnauba wax the total cost is $140. They spray the coach with a foam soap, brush and rinse with their soft non spot water. They also brush a UV protectant on the roof. It takes 2 of them about 4 hours.
So polish once a year and I wash when required.

motorhome waxed (outside detailed)

Just had mine done at Don's Truck Wash & Detail in Boise. Cost was $400 but they didn't/wouldn't polish the aluminum wheels.

From previous posts, I think I'll have it done much farther south going forward.

Motorhome wash or wax, or both

This is a subject as a newer RV'er, that I have experienced just recently here in SoCal. The wash and wax option by a mobile service was around $400 to set my baseline for being the 3rd owner of the 35' Class A I now possess (including wheels, but not the light lenses . Local truck stops get about $75 bucks for just a wash, and do a good job. I just recently did it myself, and it took about 3 hours, and I was beat (but it looked good, and I could not complain about a lousy job -- the beer was cold though!).
I have seen services at RV parks that charge about $40 bucks for just the front end (to remove bugs), but have not experienced the full wash.
Happy winter RV'ing everyone!

Thanks for the follow up. Pricing, and quality, seem to have a significant range. Also seems to be dependent on location.

Now I'm wondering if there is a particular time of year, or situation, that triggers the full wash & wax rather than just a wash.

I guess I need to drive to Florida! Prices here on the west coast start at more like $20-25 a foot and go up from there depending on the market!

Speaking from experience. I waxed the top of our Neumar the white thick vinal type roof) when we first bought it. Considered it a huge mistake. We store it inside when not in use. Couldn't go on the roof for two years, was so slick. Finally got up there and scrubbed the wax off with a solvent. Still find a slick spot from time to time.
