Waxing Cab Over

I am 5'7" and even with a 6' or 8' ladder I cannot wax the middle half of the cab over my Minnie Winnie. Can get both corners but thats about it. Open to suggestions and ideas? Thanks...bob

2 step ladders and a platform inbetween. You can use boards or adjustable platform and span the hood side to side.

The "Mop Pole" sold by "Wash Wax All" works well with their products (the pole is 4ft long and quickly extends to 9 ft so it is easy to work from the ground.) It's a pricey option up front, but I have used mine for 3 years now. I believe it is almost a life-time product. Their wax doesn't last as long as some of the harder finish waxes, but it is so easy to do, it sorta makes up for it. Their bug cleaner pad fits on the pole too and their red cleaner makes short work of black streaks, etc. Not for everyone, of course, but at my age, I gotta work from the ground.

Man lift works well or hire the local detailer.

My driveway is a bit slanted so the board/ladders method always felt unstable to me.


I bought this ladder on Amazon and when it's in the scaffold position, it is taller than the hood. I'm 5' 9" & can reach about 95% of the nose now.

I do the same thing. I add a 3 foot long strip of that spongy cabinet liner used to keep stuff from sliding in cabinets on the hood for some traction.....

Good idea. Sliding off a freshly waxed hood could be disastrous.

Cool Hire it out...

My 24' Nexus Phantom is one of the all time class C bug catchers, especially here in southern Arizona. At 8 years old it was getting chalky and dull. The local RV dealer quoted me $500 the last time I was in for service but I hired an independent detail guy who came directly to our coach in storage for $250

I'm not sure who was happier the guy that got the much needed work or me and my 68 year old back. The coach looks great and I plan to have him come back after 6 months of fun in the southwest summer. He used Meguiar's products and 303, pressure washed the roof and left my 2012 coach shining.

Thumbs up 303...

He used the 303 on the roof, seals and tires. Basically anyplace that was not appropriate for just the wax/polish.

I use an extension ladder. I cut a swim noodle to work as a cushion, against the paint. I use turtle wax ice. I try to apply at least 3 times a year. Only had it a year. I might add it is a pain to do!
