RV detailing at Goshen rally

Does anyone know the name of companies who come to fairground to detail RVs? I've seen their work in years past and would like to have my RV shine again.

You joined in 2014, and this is you’re first posting?

You must’ve gotten that PERFECT RV they talk about.

No. Have had my share of problems but Forest River has been great about fixing the hard ones. I'm a shade tree handyman and fixed the rest. No complaints about FR service. My dealer.. that's a whole other story. And extended warranty I learned was worthless.

Don't know there name, but when you see them just ask them to put you on there list, the cost I think was 10
00 a foot. Wash and wax. It might be the first people on the vendor list.,

Please be advised that if they get REAL bust we have seen them hire extra help, if so keep a eye on them as I know one person they took the paint off of one panel because the extra help did not know how to use the buffer and really was not even supposed to use it, The outcome was the vendor did not charge them to balance out the cost to have repainted. Kudos to the vendor for stepping up, please consider this just a warning as the units we have seen done did look good.

I’m sorry, but 10 bucks a foot is just crazy.

I just paid $300. for a wash and polish on my 32.5' fifth wheel in Myrtle Beach. They did a crappy job and I will not use them again. In previous years there I used a guy who had a trailer with a power washer. He did the entire trailer including wax for $150. and did a really nice job. Sorry I used a different guy this year.

I paid the $10 per foot. They did an excellent job. They came back 3 times for one side because of the oxidation. I would use them again.

Can you recommend someone? I’m going to Pigeon Forge shortly, maybe I can find someone there.

Then don’t.

Why do folks have to take a tone just because someone asked a question?

Just say, “Crazy high.” Done.

That's actually the going rate here in Raleigh NC. $10 per foot for wash and hand/buffer wax job. I don't really think that's out of line for a high quality reputable job considering the amount of product and labor involved in crawling all over a big ass 5er. I wouldn't do it for $15 a foot.

I would think that $10 per foot would be high for an R-Pod, because it is far less than half the job of a 40-foot TT or 5er. I will ask to see how much less than $200 they will take to do my R-Pod.

It was a simple question. I really did not know which you meant. However, if you are going to see such a straightforward question as being “smart a..”, I just won’t bother conversing with you. Ignore.
