"Just because a guy can detail a car, does not qualify him to detail an RV. RV's represent an assortment of challenges that should not be left in the hands of a novice."

RV Detail Pricing

RV detailing

Pricing is a difficult thing when it comes to RV's. It seems there is no general rule due to the many variables of RV's and their owners, and often ends up being a buffet-style process; a little of this and a lot of that. With that said, I have laid out the following when it comes to some general detail services for RV's:

If you have done your research, you will quickly see that we are not the "cheap guys" on the block. There are two main reasons for this:

  • We have 30 years of experience.
  • We really do get the details right

Here a few other points to consider or be aware of:

  • We are on a cash-only basis for any first time customers. (Yes; the few have ruined for the many)
  • We service all of Orange County and some surrounding areas.
  • We can service at home, business, storage, or RV park. (when it comes to RV parks or storage facilities, you will need to inquire at your facility before hand as every facility is different as to what they do or don't allow)
  • If you are a price shopper, I am unlikely going to be a good fit. But if you shop value, then I can help you come to what I consider an appropriate plan based on you, your RV, your budget, and what makes sense based on my decades of experience. I truly help you decide  the winning combination of service and cost as though it were my own RV and money. (yes; this type of balance is what I consider a win/win for both sides)

"We all learn quickly in life that the difference between a good job and a great job is always about the details"

You may not be particularly detail oriented yourself, but we are. Regardless of your critical eye or untrained eye, we can accommodate and educate in the process. Most people are surprisingly misinformed or ill-informed when it comes to their RV's and what is required and what is possible."

Additional RV Detailing Services

RV Roof Washing/Cleaning: this is included with any service that includes the roof.

RV roof washing cleaning
  • Most RV owners rarely examine the roofs of their RV.
  • We not only clean, but we inspect the integrity of your roof and any accessories while we are cleaning and washing the roof.
  • The above picture shows us performing heavy duty cleaning of the roof and the line of demarcation between the bottom (before) and the top (after) of the cleaning process.

Heavy-Duty Roof Cleaning: per quote

Many RV owners have never been on the roof of their RV and are often surprised when I come down showing them pictures of the before and after.

In many cases, the maintenance of an RV is so neglected that special requirements of cleaning are appropriate. The picture below shows just one example of a roof that had been allowed to build up excessively with dirt and mold that needed extensive heavy-duty cleaning.

RV Scratch Removal

Many people find they have incurred some scratches during their travels in one form or another. Much can be done with a buffer and the right polishes to remove, or diminish the appearance of scratches. This is by quote only and can be added to any service.

  • Using aggressive polishing techniques to remove scratches.
  • Buffers don't do damage; the person behind the buffer is the problem. Make sure you choose wisely!
  • Notice the blue tape used to protect vulnerable areas during the polishing process.

Interior Detailing:
per quote

Admittedly, we don't do much in the way of interior detailing for RV's. Not that we aren't capable, it's just most people do not request this service. If you are interested, I do so and price is subject to quote. A smart alternative is to hire your house keepers. While you could hire the house keepers to clean and a carpet service to clean the carpeting, we can indeed do it all.

A one-stop-shop.....

RV interior detailing cleaningProfessional RV interior detailing and cleaning
  • Most times we are not asked to clean/detail RV interiors.
  • Often your house keepers can do a decent job of cleaning the interior of your RV.
  • The biggest advantage to our service is a one-in-all type of service. From detailing the interior in general, to shampooing/disinfecting carpeting, upholstery,furniture.
  • We can be as detailed with your RV as we are with cars. From the bathroom/shower, refrigerator, stove top, oven, microwave, etc.

Tire Degreasing: per quote

Just like cars, many RV's will accumulate an excessive build-up of tire dressing on the tires. This is due to repeated applications of tire dressing without fully removing the dirt and old layer of dressing each time. Price will be based on thickness of build-up.

RV detailing aluminum Alcoa whels
  • The picture above is what your RV tire side-walls SHOULD look like.
  • You can check yourself how bad this build-up is on your RV by scratching the tire side wall with your finger nail and see how much of this gooey build-up you can scratch off.
  • If your side walls are not properly cleaned each and every time before a new application of tire dressing is applied, then you can expect to create a heavy build-up over time.

Wheel Polishing: per quote

rv wheel polishing
  • The wheel above is on a car but highlights the type of aluminum found on many of the higher-end RV's in the form of Alcoa wheels.
  • Just like any other material, aluminum needs to be treated appropriately as it will degrade and oxidize over time.
  • This picture shows what is possible when polishing the wheels on your RV.

Slide Outs: $25.00 per slide out

Most motorhomes, diesel pushers, 5th wheels, etc. have slide-outs that add additional time and effort to any of the above services.

RV slide outs
  • Some people are into having their slide outs washed, clayed, and wax.
  • Some just want them left alone.
  • Anything that can be done to the exterior walls, can be done to your slide outs.
  • The rubber gaskets can also be specially treated.

Chrome Polishing: per quote

Polish RV chrome
  • There are numerous areas of an RV that are chrome plated.
  • These areas like everything else will oxidize and can/should be polished with a chrome polish.
  • The picture above shows the oxidized area of this side mirror to the left, and the newly polished area on the right.
  • These areas may include side compartment latches, exhaust tips, rear gravel guard/mud-flap, etc.

Roof A/C Unit Covers Restored: per quote

RV plastice a/c covers
  • Image above shows the dramatic results when using a professional grade plastic trim restorer on the roof top A/C covers.
  • This is a semi-permanent treatment that will last 6-12 months based on exposure and type of plastic.
  • On the left you can see the oxidized "tiger-striping" that is commonly seen on oxidized plastic trim pieces and housings.
  • The right is after treatment to restore the health and beauty of the plastic covers/housings.

Roof Accessories Treated: per quote

RV roof accessories treatment
  • We treat the various roof accessories with a quality protectant on all plastic roof accessories.
  • This is for accessories that are in good condition that don't need restoration, but protection.
  • From A/C covers, satellite covers, sky lights, solar panels, etc.

"Details, Details, Details....it's always about the details!"

RV A/C roof cover

The above picture is taken from atop of a Mercedes Sprinter RV conversion. It simply highlights the endless details that can either be gotten, or forgotten by other detailers who really aren't actually "detailed" oriented.

  • From an fully painted A/C cover that is both decontaminated and then waxed, to the individual roof slates that are meticulously decontaminated first, then waxed, to the meticulous cleaning around and under all edges of just the A/Cover itself.
  • Details, details, details....it's your choice.

RV solar panel skylight
  • Solar panel cleaned and protected.
  • Skylight cleaned and treated.
  • All surrounding areas meticulously cleaned, decontaminated, and waxed.
