YES! Full wash and hand wax on our 40-foot RV for $125. Yuma is the cheapest place in the entire country to get this done. Most other places run more like $300-$400 for our size.

All these guys are local to Yuma only so you won't find them in other areas. They travel around the local RV parks in their own self-contained vehicles. There are around 10-15 of them advertised in the local "white sheets" (a free handout). The guys we used were Robert's RV Wash & Wax @ 928-919-4881.

In Yuma, you can get the wash and hand wax including the roof for the $125.00. That is the price and nothing else. It is the going price for all of the crews. If you don't believe it then come down and check it out for yourself.

We tried Benjamins but ended up waiting most of the day and no show. Finally called them about 1:15 and told them not to bother. We will try one of the others that were mentioned above.

I had the same issue with Benjamin's (his follow up was terrible) which is why I switched to Roberts. I was very happy with Roberts...he was on time and did a good job.

I spent last winter in the RGV and I had my 40' coach washed and waxed for $125 so Yuma isn't the only place where you can get a good deal.

What does RVG Mean

I thought 400 bucks was fine, heck the guy around (Mpls) here told me 600, I almost begged him too do it, Nope, I kind of wondered why he gave me a quote for then.
I had already waxed it twice and got all the oxidation off too start with. We'll be in Quartzite next winter so I will wait (if I can).
So I've been told that Class is a clean semi, when I drove them.
So can I say that with the MH
Class is a clean Motorhome... Yep sounds good. No jive either...

I have used Sergio's in Yuma for the past 3 years. Wash and hand wax my 38 footer for $110. Sergio's 928-919-4368. I have found them to be more reliable than some of others. Most are only available during the winter season, which tends to wrap up by the end of April.

I hire a day laborer from a local jobs place and oversee the work they do. $100/day plus lunch. Usually takes about half day. To fill out the day add yard work or other items to be done around the house.
