Papi's in Yuma.
He comes around and will book you.
$125 for wash and wax both car and motorhome.

They spent 4 1/2 hours and did a good job.

In RGV, mine is scheduled today at noon. 39 ft. Wash only $69, wash and hand wax $125, add $5 and they will do the awnings.
Stevie's RV wash. They did a coach a few spots down from us the other day. Crew of 5 worked about 2 1/2 hrs. Woman washed roof, I'd never seen anyone open the fan vents and clean the underside of the covers before.

Up in western Washington where I live, I cannot find a reasonable wash and wax anywhere... I paid a "professional " detailed to wash and wax my 41 footer last year... did ok but was not really impressed. Cost was $50.00 per hour X 7 hours = $350.00. I usually try to do it myself but had an injury at the time so had someone else do it for the first time...

Bubba, was in Richland and had a guy recommended to us. His cost was about $300, and he was booked up 4 weeks in advance. Guess you got to plan ahead.

Thanks, I sure get envious of people in other parts of the country that can get a wash and wax for under $150.00. Would never find anyone to tackle the job for anywhere near that price around here....

After paying to have my 02 Kountry Star completely repainted, I do the grunt work myself. The RV park here in Yuma has several different RV detailers who do a decent job for what they charge, but, when you can see the wax application lines after they wipe the excess wax off, to me, it looks less than stunning. I polish out the lite scratches, then apply the wax and remove the excess with my orbital polisher. Takes way more time, but there are NO SWIRL marks when I'm done.

The only experience i've had was 2 yrs. ago had my 43 footer done in Destin Fl. for around $400 . Two guys worked 9 hrs. top to bottom, wash ,wax complete exterior detail and the coach looked new ! Expensive, yes but it was my birthday present to myself !! Wish I still had it!

You can buy an average house in Yuma for 100k, I bet avg homes in your area are 3-400k. It's all cost of living.

We're in Mazatlan at the moment, and 'our', (and I mean that, they are very friendly,) RV Park attendant today washed and waxed our 40 foot 2004 Winnebago Vectra, for $45, including a wash on our Jeep. Yesterday, another local fixed big spider web cracks in the rear cap corners, and one by the engine compartment, a few chips on the back, and some clear coat peel on a side , $375. Both projects have made the coach look brand new. If you are near the border, and have fiberglass, paint jobs, or need a wash and wax, get 'er done!

We just arrived in Bradenton, FL. Asked about getting the coach washed at the RV park check in and was given a nice brochure from the RV detailing service they recommend. He wants as much to wash the roof and coach as I pay to get the coach washed and waxed in Myrtle Beach. He wants $6.50 per foot for hand wash, tires dressed and $12.50 per foot to wash and polish.

So, not sure if this is on par with other places in FL but I will probably just use my Wash Wax All system and be done with it.

Taking the motorhome to Mexico for the winter is one thing we would like to do after we can finally retire. Sound like great deals! Brian.
