Blue Beacon Truck Wash

I haven't tried one yet. What is your experience with them? I would be running my pickup and 5th wheel trailer through it. Thx for the info.

Search "truck wash for Coach" for the answers you seek.
Well discussed topic.

Results for BDWEAK recommendation.

Personally I find the Blue Beacon cleaning processes/staff hard on my prized possessions. I attribute this to the fact they service "trucks". Yes they do cater to RVs but I had a previous bad experience at a Blue Beacon. Others certainly recommend them and you will hear from them as well, or can read on the linked threads.

I have had more success with finding a local RV wash service in the campground, as they are more attune to taking the care usually afforded our coaches/trailers/trucks.

My previous unit was a Heartland Landmark, full body paint and F350 King Ranch. I certainly like the newer Landmark 365 line; Tom has done a good job elevating the standards.

My thoughts,
Brian

When traveling we use Blue Beacon. Our 11 year old motorhome still looks like new.
I do wax it twice a year.

Blue Beacon RV wash
website explains it thoroughly. It is a hand-wash, unlike the HDT wash which is automated.
The search results for Blue Beacon RV wash are many, and of course varied opinions are always to be found. Personally, I have seen no damage from them.

I have used several from illinois to florida and all have been good. Like my father told me about women, all good, just some better than others.

I sure wish Blue Beacon would build some truck and RV washes in Washington where I live. I live about 30 miles north of Seattle and there is nowhere close to wash my motorhome.

They 'washed' the outside light lens beside the entrance door right off the coach. I liked the job I got at Ocean Lakes from the custom crew that comes by your site. More expensive than BB but the cleaner is not as acidic and harsh, especially on the alloy wheels.

Used them several times. Some better than others. For $45 they can't be beat. Not a "Detail" level job, but more than adequate. I have a Itasca Elipse .
