After an outing of camping it is normal to clean the inside the same way it was when you left. For the outside it is also normal to give a good wash to get rid of the road dust and also the dust that you get from some campgrounds because they have no paved road etc. Dont go to trucks and car washes. The water pressure can cause leaks inside that you will regret after. Use a fine mist when you rince to prevent this.

Your not alone, my wife thinks I'm crazy. I wash it every trip, the inside is spotless, wax and buff as needed. I don't mind doing it either. I also super anal about my trucks. Washed usually 1-2 times a week, waxed frequently, insides spotless. Must be a disease.

It is not a disease. It is because you are proud of your possession!

Even though it's a lot of work, it's still fun. I've been trying to add an extra day to our camping weekends making it more worth the extra work.

You're not alone Chewie, my husband washes it after every trip..I don't care if it's a three day trip. On the flip side, I do clean the inside after each trip, restock whats necessary, then we're ready to go if we decide on a Thursday night to leave Fri morning!
We don't mind the cleaning, its become part of owning a RV, however, I do wish for a laundry fairy!!

Sorry guys, its justa truck. When I bought it new I drove it home and immediately got my key and scratched the fender.
Tada! No worries about dings and its first scratch.

Same with the camper.
A week old and I ran into it with the riding mower.

Meh, clean it inside and out when it gets dewinterized. Coat of good wax at the same time.

Gets cleaned out when winterized so no critters find food attractions to draw hem in.

Then clean and vacuum during and after use.

Check a couple days before we go out and if it's gotten dirty sitting, clean inside. I like it clean at least the first day.

Outside, meh.

Clean/scrub it if the black streaks start. Scrub the bugs of the front cap when they get bad. Wash the diesel soot off if it gets noticeable.

It's always kept at least presentable but we're not stupid crazy about spotlessness.

Otherwise, it's goes as is.
