Sorry, Kurt. I was away from the computer. That's great help. I'm in Northernn Nevada. Lots of RV's in the area, but I'm not sure how many people will pay to have them cleaned yet. I put a one liner in a local ad. publication and I had two calls the first day. One is an RV lot owner. I don't know what he wants yet. Thanks. Jay.

Jay,
When I was in the Vegas area a year and a half ago the prices were cheaper then the East Coast for sure. I had a 35" Fifth wheel, which I keep relativle clean and polished, but a mobile unit was going to charge me $325 for a full outside deatil including wax. The guy had a box truck where he had a generator, a gas pressure washer system, and he carried his own water to wash the coaches with. It was a nice set-up. If I could get that price in NY I would have it done, it is alot of work!

Good Luck with your business.

I just paid $322.50 for a complete top to bottom wash and wax. Two guys equipped as described by Lenny spent over 4 hours. Passed inspection by DW and she's not easy to please.

I waxed my old coach before selling it and feel like it made me several thousand bucks doing it. Bought a orbital sander and did a great job. I sure wouldn't do anybody's for $322.50 though. It took me several day, but it looked new.

I washed and waxed mine until -- until I overextended (read fell off of) on the ladder an took out a $750 Remco mirror on the way down -- until I had four artery heart by-pass surgery. Actually, I feel better now than I have in years, but DW gets real excited when I mention "ladder". It's a lot less hassle for me to pay the guys to keep it looking good.
