Fair price for wash and polish

I would like to get some opinions on what would be a fair price for a hand wash and polish on a 30' TT. Thanks

Hard to answer that. The more disposable cash you have on hand, the higher a "reasonable" price can be. The less cash you have, the lower that price must be. The only real answer to a question like this is that if YOU are happy with the price and don't feel like you got ripped off then it was a fair price.
The "going rate" in your area may be more, or less, than what you'd pay. If you're asking what the going rate is in your area, you'll have to let us know where you are so that someone in your area can chime in.

How does $200 and some wobbly pop sound? Where do you live?

Most places I've seen in the south, from Tx. to Fl. run from 5$ to 8$ a foot for wash & wax

Thanks for the info, I am actually thinking of maybe starting a Mobil Rv detail business. How profitable do you guys think it would be?

Very labor intensive...can't imagine that one person could wash/wax more than two medium sized campers per day and that wouldn't be taking any time to scratch your butt. If you were charging $200 per camper, $400 per day if you could find that much business.

Good idea i think, but me personally i like to wash and wax my own stuff!!! There is a personal satisfaction of the end results when my buddies need shades to look at it with my Chrome truck too

Don't know where you live, but here's an example 1st Class Mobile Detail .

Just google your area for existing competition/rates for your area.
