We take sponge baths, use showers at campgrounds that have them, but mostly use the hot water shower we built into our '97 econoline conversion van

While camped at the KOA in St Mary Montana, I asked the manager if I could wash the 2500 miles of dirt an squashed bugs off my class C. He walked over, looked at the RV then sent 2 staff members over with ladders and hoses and had them help me wash the RV down. No charge, he must have felt sorry for us LOL. I gave the boys a nice tip!!!

The most expensive campground we stay at doesn't allow owners to wash their rigs but there are plenty of companies on sight to make our rigs look like new.

West of Kingman,Az washed and waxed, hand dried including the roof $65.00 but last time they charged me $75.00.
however this last time they damaged the right side middle mirror and it does not work remotely now.
Depending on how persnikety you are you will not be ever pleased with anyone else's work especially afer they do something like that.
if You are able do it yourself. Buy brushes and arms longer than you think you will need. My shoulders and back can tell you why.
I would wash as wife rinsed one side at a time and we dried it before going to the other sides. Big towel on long brush wipes good. We tried to do it before the dew dried.After finishing that workout you are ready for some excitement if you don't collapse. A Five mile run but with brushes and pads.

The ‘South of the Border’ campground in Dillon, South Carolina has a self-service car wash with two RV bays, one of which seemed big enough for most motorhomes, IIRC. The ‘resort’ is fashionably tacky, at best, but it’s close to I-95, fairly inexpensive and located at just about the right stopping point when I head south. I’m in a Class B, so it’s a bit easier for me ($2), but the RV wash comes in handy after driving through winter snow or slush.
