Motorhome Wash at Goshen??

I could not find any info with a search.

Does anyone know if there will be any crews offering Wash or Wax services for our rigs at the campground or even near by?

We just got a wax before we left Texas but we have been through some rain on the way.

I seemed to remember there was a guy last doing that . I believe the charge was $30 per foot (length).

$3 would be $126.00 for us. Considerably more than a Blue Beacon, but you would be paying a little more for the 'convenience' I guess.

I only suggested the $3--I only thought he might of intended $3 instead of the $30 per foot he suggested.

If your coming thru Indianapolis there are two Blue Beacon on the south side. I think one is about 95 mile marker on I-65 and one at exit 4 on 465-- also Mikes truck wash on I-65 at Lebanon a Indiana.

I understood. ....considering last time I was at a Camping World. ...I think the charge listed on their board was something in the neighborhood of $3.50 or $3.60 per ft...so $3 kind of fit.

I think I paid Mikes Truck Wash in Lebanon Indiana $65 for coach & toad last time. That was for the 35' coach I had then.

In FL, a "come to the site" complete with roof, awning, rv wash and wax is normally around $250.-$300.

They are very fair. They are close to my home. I like Blue Beacon a little better. Either one better than doing it myself. My Berkshire even longer!! For sure not want to do myself!!

Last month at the FMCA rally in Goshen there was a mobile wash that made the rounds. I know he was local and I would think he will be at the FROG rally. I can't remember his name. Also there was a local team that did RV repair in site. They might not get much business with FR's teams out all day working.

When I was at Tiger Run Resort in Breckenridge, there was mobile wash and detail rig in the park. I got mine washed and wheels polished. He was $125 for a wash and $25 a wheel. Rig looked great. I tipped him $15 and he stopped by and washed my Jeep the next morning for free...

His company apparently has 4 rigs, he works Florida in the winter and Breck in the summer. I'll find the card when I unload.
