took me 2 days and a lot of climbing up and down ladder, so I got a good work out also!, But I have a lot of money invested in my camper and plan on keeping it looking good!

I find that keeping a good wax job on the camper makes cleaning it a heck of lot easier. It seems that you either do the work up front, or end up doing twice as much later.
Sometimes I envy those who just use their stuff and never worry about what it looks like. But I do take pride in my vehicles and camper, and proper care does help resale value if that time comes along.
I recently sold my jet boat, and the buyer couldn`t believe how nice it was. And he willingly paid a premium because of it.

I cant agree with you more - keeping it clean shows that you care and the fact that it is easier to clean the bugs off of it.
on top of the fact that someone will pay a premium knowing it was well taken care of and not used and abused.

I have seen a few campers that when you look at them you have to take a second look cause you cant believe they are camping in what looks like rolling junk

I try and wax mine at least twice a year if possible. To save a lot of time you can go to Rocky Point Mexico and they will wash and wax your rig for $1.25 - $1.50 a foot and they also do the roof. That's what I did in March. It cost me $45 and they use marine fiberglass paste wax.
