    Today whilst valeting khizzie''s motor home my faithful brush broke, I do seem to get though them but with the handle made from aluminium they do fracture The problem is that it was from Costco and they don't seem to sell them anymore, I prefer these brushes as they a a bit firmer than the average brush and they have bristles (if that's the right description) at the side of the brush head which makes them ideal for valeting motorhomes. Anyone know where I can buy something similar???

    Got one recently from JTF (stores Preston, warrington mainly in the north but could order online) and your right if it has the bristles on 3 side easier to wash the van
    Not sure if the pole good enough quality for regular use but can keep the head (unscrews) and buy a good quality paint brush pole (same thread)

    Thanks for the offer, but since starting this thread I have ordered two different brushes (one has arrived) and after having a dig in my garage found that I had one that I haven't used.

    I'm a happy bunny, went to Costco today and they had valeting brushes in stock so I bought four. I know it doesn't take much to please some :)
