Looks great. I have seen guys detailing in campgrounds before. I always thought that was a big no no to detail/ wash an RV in a campground.

I suspect they have deals with local guys that do the washing. The RV park gets a kickback for exclusivity. Also doesn't hurt business to have beautiful clean rigs on property!

Tiger Run --- expensive but beautiful! Might consider buying a lot there one day.

Where we camp in FL (Davenport/Kissimmee) for the winter, the detailers are independent, bring their own water, etc and have nothing to do with the campgrounds themselves. You can pick whomever to do the detailing from the yellowpages or do a Google search.

I use a Mothers Power Ball w/extension shaft, and Turtle Wax Scratch & Swirl remover. Takes a little time but does a great job. Just cant see paying $100 for something I can do very easy myself.

yeah, its easy enough to do yourself, but maybe the other folks dont want to or maybe cant spend a lot of time in the sun. i agree on the mothers powerball tho. it does a great job.

No fender skirts. After we have looked it over very closely, we noticed that there are no remnants or traces of wax in any cracks, crevices, emblems or anything. Came to the conclusion that the car has never been waxed but the finish is immaculate. Hard to believe a 17 year old car has never been waxed, but having been garage kept it's entire life and never driven in the rain, I guess it's possible. Can't believe we were lucky enough to buy it.

Sorry for hijacking the thread.

Couldn't really tell on the skirts - figured if it did have them, they would be small.

I can't remember the last U.S.car that came with fender skirts - I put them on my '53 and '57 Chevys.

Oldest son doesn't like the looks of the rear fender cutouts because it doesn't show the whole wheel. Young punks (50 yo) just don't appreciate a lowered, skirted car, altho he did like my '56 which was lowered, skirted and with functioning lake pipes.
