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.

Was the ride on one on purpose as well or just an unfortunate accident?Or maybe it was fortunate,however you look at it.

Wash the outside before I go then when I get back before putting it away. Wife cleans inside after we get back I usually go and finnish cleaning inside the spots she misses after all I'm taller and get the high places no problem just a routine and as far as the truck usually Just before we go someplace. I also had a accident with truck first month I owned it so it is broke in. also took off and removed the steps I forgot to raise first time I took it someplace what a bummer I grantee I don't forget no more...

I start cleaning before we leave the cg and heading home. I pull off all the sheets put them in a laundry bag along with the towels and other dirty things. I get out the shopvac if I have time and vacuum the floor from one end to the other. After getting home, laundry bag out the door, clean the bathroom and kitchen area and what else needs it. Hey, DW works so I have to do most of it plus I am retired. I will take the old hose and clean what needs outside, getting ready for the next outing. We enjoy it more if everything is clean and useable. Yes, camping is fun. We got out today and did a campground scouting trip for our future adventures.

My wife is the same way. But I don't usually clean the outside after every use. But we do deep clean the inside after every use.

I bought a cordless Electrolux stick vac at Costco which works well during trips. I got one for the RV because I like the one in our kitchen at home. The handheld part detaches and there are tools to get crumbs from corners easily. It lives in the bathroom in the corner behind the toilet. If we are plugged in to shore power, it's charge light acts as a handy blue nightlight.

I wash the floor once a day - and wipe up spills as they happen.

Same here Camper and truck Washed and cleaned everytime it gets pulled out the driveway. Inside scrubbed top to bottom before it leaves campground.

DH can't stand black streaks. Just got back from the beach and he even pulled in all three slides washed camper and waxed off black streaks during the trip.

Just waiting for him to start on a camper in front of him!!! He can't stand to even see them on someone elses rig!!!!

Yep, I'd admit I'm a neat freak...
Wash exterior before each trip outing (approx 6x/yr), wash roof 4x/yr, inside gets cleaned just like our home once we get back from each trip...after three years of camping in our first unit, people always asked if we just bought it
( Looking back, should have bought a cover and eliminated a lot of work, but I do enjoy it!)
