    well it got its first wash yesterday. No. 1 son and girlfriend helped. Bubble wrapped ladder so I could get up to clean the roof, surprisingly easy to clean and was happy with the results (y).

    As it was so easy I'll bring mine round for you to do

    £5 should cover it?

    Sitting in a campsite in Córdoba with 26 Dutch caravaners, one has just spent 30 min cleaning her van. When I asked her to clean ours she refused, how rude!!!!
    Well it is 32 here and just watching 26 caravans and vans park in small spaces is quite funny.
    This is the second large group of Dutch caravaners we have seen on this trip. They move in herds, they do move in herds ( Jurassic park quote for those not in the know!)
    Nice campsite La Campina just outside Córdoba with only 36 spaces ( yes and 26 are Dutch with about 5 Brits)

    Is that the soonest you can do it?
    I need it done this week as we're off to Scotland at the weekend.

    Did mine this weekend solo.

    5 hours washing and an hour polishing (although didn't polish the roof).

    Will be getting some covers for the ladder so I can prop myself up there.

    Scraped spanish, french and a lot of english crap off ours today. Not been done for 4 weeks.
    Just a quick once over - 2 hours!

    Like the lidl w5 wheel cleaner, transformed the alloys, but had trouble with the instructions as I bought it in spain.
    Any more advice other than spray on, scrub, rinse well?

    Looks a lot better now and will stay clean now its summer!!!:whistle:

    Wipe with a damp rag then a waterless wash and shine.
    Looks ok but it was no valet!

    Washed ours Thursday, wheels, roof and underneath were given the treatment too. Hoovered and washed all the carpets, changed the bed and polished the woodwork. Looked like a new one!
    Had to go out in it Friday, tipping it down with rain and the driveway to our house is an unmade ( read, muddy) road, then a mile of tractor muddied roads till the dual carriageway.
    Had to wash it all again today ( bar the roof)
    But, it looks like new again.....
