How Much Should It Cost to Get MH Waxed?

I want to get my 2004 Winnebago Sightseer 30b exterior waxed before my summer trip. I was wondering what it would cost to have this done. I would do it myself but no longer can physically do it. I know condition is a factor and I would say it is in good condition for it's age. It is fiberglass and if you run your hand across the side no white dust comes off but it is still dull.

Any input would be helpful, thank you.

Two years ago we got a quote of $10 per foot. Not sure how good a job that would be though.

We opted to use Zep acrylic instead. A lot of preparation work, but still looks pretty good today. And we full-time.

We just left the Ocala area and had ours done. They washed from top(did an incredible job on the roof) to bottom, hand dried, then waxed the entire coach from front cap to rear cap and hand buffed. I bought the wax. I got a good Carnuba paste wax. It cost us $250, but to me it was worth every penny.

North East Florida typically runs close to $350. depends on the rv though. There is a guy drives all over to do it. His name is Fred and he comes to you to do the work.

I have a fellow in Myrtle Beach that spends most of his time in Ocean Lakes RV Park. He charges slightly less than $6 per foot to wash and polish the coach. Includes roof cleaning. They apply a commercial polish with orbital buffers and buff it off by hand. Always do a good job.

Thanks for the input. I realize that location and area has a lot to do with pricing. Thanks again.

RV Detailing

We were at a large rally with our TX RVing club and a company came in and offered washing/waxing/and detailing(engine/gen/battery areas) all for $175.00. There were 40 of us at the rally and 25 signed up! Our coach looked GREAT....liked it rolled off the show room floor.

Around $8 ft. I use a waterless cleaner/polish/wax on a micro fiber mop with extension pole. So easy. Polishing alum wheels easy by hand, sitting on a stool.

I hire a day worker about once a year to clean and wax. Usually pay ~$100 plus lunch. Does not take the whole day so also get some other yard cleanup and high/heavy tasks done.
