Wash and Wax $200

Was in TN with the coach and had her hand washed and waxed for $200. The company's name is Brownlows RV detail. Dayton is the CEO and owner, and explained to me his company is 18 years old and he has crews from FL to CA. They do yachts, airplanes and of course RVs. Made mine look new and she really shines. I commented that I was going to have him wax mine every 2 months, and he replied it will only need it twice a year because of the high quality wax he uses. Dayton can be reached at 865-765-3896. Of course he only takes cash.

What kind of wax did he use? Sounds like a heck of a deal! How long did it take them and how many were working on it?

That is a great price. The best deal I have found is at Myrtle Beach where a crew of 5 guys wash the coach (including the roof) and then wax/polish using orbital buffers to apply the wax then buff it off by hand. $270 which I think is a good price to do a nearly 43' coach. They work nearly full time in one large RV park.

Wow I just paid 325 for a wash and wax. They did the roof and wheels. I will say the the wheels have never looked that good and the wax job is outstanding. Very happy and will use them again.

We had a similar company do ours at a campground in East Tennessee last summer. Cost $200, and they did a great job.

Cash also doesn't bounce and has no hidden fees attached.

Said he had put his own wax formula together after many years and uses only the best products with UV protectants. There were 3 working on my coach.

Okay, where in TN was this? What city? How large is your RV? 40'? What "quality wax" did they use? How long did it take?

Missing some important info here . Thanks.

Cheers!
