I live in Sherman Oaks. Toy hauler sits in Van Nuys. It is in the Sun. So I need a detail badly. I would love to take it and drop it off. I don't mind a little drive. Just somewhere the will shine it up and make it look great again.
Thank You !!

Takes a few hours, but wash it and try some Meguiars RV cleaner and wax. The effort wasn't a bit enjoyable, but the results were awesome and worthwhile.

I agree.... But, I have no place to do it. Any good RV self wash places in the San Fernando Valley ???? And maybe a place to put on wax. Can I do the wax at Sepulveda Basin Park ??

To bad you're not in PHX.
Got mine done there for $349 by R & C Complete Cleaning, Phone 602-460-9350. And I'm not even there.I recommend them highly.

They went to my covered storage yard, and did it there for me. My buddy checked it out after and said it looks amazing. They used a 3 part Meguiars rv marine wax, and a fiberglass prep system first.
They even polished my a/c covers, antenna, and roof vents. And cleaned out the a/c pans.
All in 111* AZ heat in the sun... better them than me.

Here are some pics they sent me...

can you park it on the street and run a hose to it?

if not, go to a truck wash
-or-
clean it on the next camp out. All you need is water, and bring the rest of the supplies.

I need a new job or something. There is no way I am paying 350 bucks for something I can do myself for under 50.

I think this will be my best bet. I have a week in Pismo. I will polish it and then hose it all off on the way back at a truck wash place.

There are truck wash places in Castaic, I used one once but just for a wash. You might try calling them. Then call some of the independent R.V. places like Benchmark in N. Hollywood, they might know mobile detailers that will come to you.
