Clean!!!

My husband insisted we needed a powerwasher to wash the trailer, but I was nervous about so much power against the trailer (which is 22 years old, after all!) and I took it upon myself to wash it today while he was out on his motorcycle...It looks great...makes me excited again about camping.
BEFORE...DIRTY is above, and the clean is below....hopefully you can tell the difference! I will leave him with the top, because tall ladders are not my thing...

I detail cars so I decided to use my knowledge on my 83 1550 and after a washing it looked pretty dull so I tried some turtle wax on it I loved the shine after that I took out my car buffer and just went over it lightly now it looks brand new Tip on bringing back the color and gleam to vinyl stripes and decals is spray "Armour All" on a rag then wipe them it may take a few coats but you'll be real happy with the end results and spray the tires it protects and shines

Looking Good Colbytaryn. Thanks for sharing.

And yes I too question a power washer on the joints of these campers. The corners, around trhe windows and doors are all sealed with putty tape that over time cracks. After having dealt with water damage, my power washer will never get used on the camper.

Enjoy camping.

John

Hi Campit

Which exact Armour All product are you referring to on the decals? Armor Allģ - Go Ahead. Stare.

My side stripes are heavy sun hazed and I can not get the shine back.

Thanks

John
