Car Wash for Duallies

Just bought my first Dually, 15 F350. It's time to get her washed so I can wax her and keep her pretty. Calling around, no one can take duallies. So if you have a Dually, where do you get it washed?

The world was not built for dual wheel trucks.

Went to Blue Beacon today, they said they'd wash it $15-20.00. They also do undercarriage washing. I'll be there next weekend or as soon as it stops raining. When I can't find them I guess I'll be washing it myself or hire it done. It's a whole new world being a dually owner.

Used to be that some of the full service car washes also had hand washing, rather than running it through the machine. Don't know if any still offer that service

There was one in Lufkin, TX and it was $45 for the hand wash.

Ditto in my driveway. Why pay someone to scratch it all up for you?

For $45 you probably got a free lunch and drinks while you were waiting.
Or, was it college cheerleaders in bikinis doing the washing?

If you can find a fund-raiser car wash, usually on weekends, and just have to get lucky to find it, that would work. Otherwise DIY. Automated car washes are not designed for dually trucks.

Found and tried a coin wash yesterday. I like the other ideas, weekend car washes, and hand wash at car wash also. You guys that drive HD's, what do you do
