Truck and RV wash

Does anyone on here use or have used a truck wash to wash your camper? I am just a little lazy, well the truth is a lot lazy, I'm to lazy to wash the camper. I'm at River Plantation in Sevierville, TN and they have a RV wash here and I have been on the road now for five weeks and camper is dirty, it's dirty and I'm lazy. I'm thinking of let them wash camper, it's only a hundred bucks. Work is a dirty word to me. What do you think?

Truck and RV wash

I would find out their hours and be first in line! We sometimes use Blue Beacon truck washes and have been very pleased. Ask them to brush it and spray with Rainex. Truck and trailer will shine and dry with no waterspots. I think we paid about $65.00 last winter in Fort Pierce.

$100 seems a little high. I've been pleased with blue beacon.

My camper is a monster. I would pay someone to wash it for me.

We normally go to Myrtle Beach for a couple of weeks over New Years. There are a couple of folks that make their living by going through the camp ground (Ocean Lakes) washing and waxing RV's.
I recall we paid $150 for a wash and wax. They did a great job including washing both sides of the awning, and the roof. We plan to do it again this year.

X3 on blue beacon...have used them several times at $35-$40 with rainX & wheel shine.
There's one at the Knoxville Flying J if you will be passing through there.
Here's a link to their location list....they have a phone app too.

Last year my better half stated that I was to old to wash and wax my 38 foot fiver. I was taking the fiver to Camping World for a slide adjustment and while it was there the better half called and was going to have them wash and wax the fiver until she found out that they wanted $420. She told me that maybe I was not to old to wash and wax it.

RV Wash

If you are headed down I95, I use Louis' Truck and RV Wash in Richmond Hill, GA (just south of Savannah). It is a hand wash. Costs $45 for my 30 foot Class A- $1.50 per foot. Rain X is extra. I am way too lazy to wash it when I can pay $45 for somebody else to do it. I take retirement seriously!
