    As long as you don't expect it to be a proper pressure washer they are excellent. We use ours for all sorts of things, including washing the conservatory roof by hanging out of a bedroom window with it and cleaning other people's dog poo off the drive. Also good for cleaning gutters, and possibly motorhomes as well.

    Doesn't deliver enough water to safely wash a motorhome

    Did not expect it suitable for a whole wash, just for a clean up around wheel arches, lower trim when touring.
    Even washing the e bike off now and then.

    I think that you'll find that there's certainly no where near enough pressure to clean wheel arches, wheels or a muddy bike especially if mud left on a day or two.
    Yes, it's cheap but would you be happy at spending a tenner for an ornament?

    I purchased one a couple of months ago with the thought of taking it with us in the MH to wash the worst of any dirt off it. It would not get up to pressure and kept leaking air. I even took it apart and reassembled it gluing the bits together and still it leaked air so I binned it. I did get my money refunded though.

    If it looks too good to be true then it almost certainly is.

    Got one a couple of years ago. Just about OK for washing the soap suds off the car in the street, but that's about all. Handy though if your out of range of a hose.

    Yep, that's just about its power. Still probably less exertion by bringing a bucket or two of water a chucking it over the car as was my old preferred method.

    You will also need a discount card to buy it for a tenner. That's another fiver!
