What would you pay....

I need to have our 42' Beaver Patriot hand washed and waxed.
Any idea what I should expect to pay?

The number of slides you have will affect the cost.

Just paid $7.80/foot. He came to my home, hand washed and waxed. I requested that he not do the roof. Very satisfied. During my travels I have paid as much as $10/foot, if I had the time to get it done.

Michelin says never to "treat" you tires with anything but a brush, soap and water. Not even 303 anymore.

Depends where you are and if there is competition. When in south Florida, I find there are numerous companies that do it, and do a nice job. The more competition, the more you can dicker! Had beautiful jobs done - the coach and the car for $300.

Bucket - $1.25
Wash Sponge - $2
Microfiber Clothes - $5
Soap with Carnuba Wax - $6

Satisfaction of having done the job yourself - priceless!














Medical bills after falling off the roof - $1m

Found a couple of fellows here in Vegas that did a wash & Wax on our 38' gas coach for $250. They also washed the roof did a great job.

True, but since it rots the tire sidewall sooner is it worth it since tires age (sidewall cracking) out. On a car they wear out and you don't see the aging before they need replacing.

Of course, and they reported it on their income taxes I'm sure!
