Typical Charge for Wash/Wax?

Yeah...Yeah... I know it's cheaper to do it ourselves, but that's not what I'm looking for here

We usually wash our tt on our own, then pay for someone to wax it, but we currently feel incredibly lazy! This time while camping, we decided to pay someone to wash/wax/treat the roof/clean awning for $8 a foot. Our tt is 29' so it should've cost $232 but we talked the guy down to $210.

Just wunderin' - for those that pay for wash/wax, what is the going rate? Thanks

Good price! I've been quoted more than that for my 32ft Motorhome. Quite a bit more.

We paid $100 to get our Montana 5th wheel washed. Top, sides, tires were $3 per foot. They wanted $5 per foot for wash and wax. That is in Parker Az.

Seann, there are several here in Parker washing trailers. The one that has been here for years is the one I used. They are in Lake Havasu City the name is Arizona Reflections. They have the same crew from year to year and I would guess they will be around for a while. They are mobile.

I was in Yuma last year and had my Jayco 325BHS washed and waxed on site for 100 bucks. They did a super job. I did not make it there this year so it looks like I am on my own come spring. I don't like heights so am not looking forward to doing my roof.

There is a product called Gel Gloss RV Wash and Wax it is a very thick orange goo that you add to the wash water... does one heck of a job.. used it on my last TT and will use it on this one too... really just did not feel like doing it myself but after seeing the job Tom's Mobile wash did... I will do it myself..

Wow, sounds like Az has some good prices. We are tentatively planning on going to Lk Havasu next month but not certain of our plans at the moment. It would be nice to get a low price by a reputable company.

Healthi, they are based in Lake Havasu City. Arizona Reflections should be in the phone book.
