We had our 35 ft 5th wheel done at the Indian River Campground, Michigan, while we were there for 2 weeks in July. $5 a foot for wash, $7 a foot for wash and wax. They did a great job and I realized I had a white roof, lol.

That is not true in all cases. I had mine done in Alabama after I saw one they had done earlier. It looked like it was 20 years old before they started and almost looked brand new when they were finished! Same price I paid, $10 a foot! I just didn't think you could bring back something that oxidized!
Just because you pay more does not make it better! Depends on what part of this country you are in!

In Yuma we paid $120 for 30 ft 5th wheel, and they came 15 miles out of town to where we were camped. Wash & hand wax.

Had my rig pressure washed in Yuma, and the rubber roof developed bubbles. Caused by the wash? Iím not sure, but my rig was only a year old at the time. Not an experience I would repeat although others havenít had an issue.

Prepare to have your mind blown. I have a 30-foot FR Wildcat Max, 262RGX, 2017. I bought it from Camping World in 2016. I live near Sacramento CA. Admittedly, the sun can be brutal on fiberglass here in CA. When I bought it I was talked into having a protective coating by Platinum Protection Systems applied (never again). I store the 5ver outside. Earlier this year I noticed some areas that were starting to fade and made a claim with Platinum. I had an estimate written by CW to buff and polish the trailer for (drum roll please...) $4,134.69. Platinum would only pay $2K. After a chat with the sales manager at CW they agreed to do the buff and polish for the $2K. So, basically, a good ending to the story-I think. Because I was not there to see CW actually do the buff and polish I have no idea how good of a job they did. I can still see some faded/dull areas on the front cap. I have since bought a good cover for the 5ver.

I considered a cover too. But I used to cover one of my cars and the cover caused run damage where it touched the vehicle. That lead me to steer away from a cover for the 5er
