Just spent an hour washing the motorhome. I just dont feel the same about washing the M/H as the car. I quite enjoy washing and polishing the car, but find it hard to find the enthusiasm to spend the same amount of time on what I see as a big van.

I get more of a kick out of doing the bus myself (it's my baby):roflmto: although a few hours work:winky:

Loads of work but with the right brushes and equipment find the big flat side easy.

Fenwicks cleaner seems to be the prefered choice, and Autoglym polish. Maguires is an excellent polish but as its a two coat process the M/H is to damm big.

everytime you clean it you remove a minute layer of paint.
Want a respray? or a dirty van, besides enough rain to keep it clean in Britain.

Hi Andyman
I'm just the opposite, I like cleaning my M/H & its 35ft long and I also love cleaning my motorbike.

But I hate cleaning cars I'd rather scrap the bloody things than polish them.
Just to prove it I've just spent 2 days washing and waxing the Rv ready to go off to Morocco, next week on a 8 week trip.

Guess what 1 hour after finishing it's p****** it down :cry::cry:

Hope you do a better job of washing the Rv than you do erecting tables and chairs or tying up A frames :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Won't be long now mate :thumb: getting excited yet ??????

Where's my towel, so I can cry for you.

Washing our coach is a breeze compared with the 6 hours it takes me to wash the boat. Applying a liquid polish to the painted coach takes less than 2 days, compared to 21 days to apply a heavy paste wax to the unpainted gel coat on the boat.

When I'm finished with the coach, it feels like I'm just getting into my stride, and I'll do one or more of the cars.
