The picture below was taken after getting it washed at the blue beacon.
Is this a machine wash? Or is it folks with power washers going to town? I got a quote of $27 about 45 minutes north of me for a Blue Beacon place. I haven't tried them, though.

There is a crew of guys with brushes and hoses. I have been there and there were 4-6 guys in there, and one day there was only 2. The manager told me it was supposed to rain that day so they didn't expect much business. I think it's well worth it for the cost. They will spray your truck of also even if you elect not to have them wash it. At least at the location I go to.

We don't have a Blue Beacon here in Grand Rapids or close by or I would definitely give them a try

I'm in the same situation. It's a 100 miles east or west, for me to go to one.

It does look like a great deal, perusing their website:

There is also one called Eagle truck wash. Not sure what their prices are. Looks like they only have a few locations across the US.

Hurray! Just found out that the RV Park I frequent allows you to wash your RV.
