Your RV is constantly out in the weather, which means it needs good, regular, cleanings. First of all, make sure not to use dish soap, shampoo, or any household cleaners. Your RV is like a car, it needs specialized cleaners that aren’t harsh on the paint and finish. One tip, though; you can add vinegar to your RV cleaner to prevent water spotting and enhance the cleaner a little bit. Use about 1/3 cup per 5 gallon bucket of water and cleaner. Pressure washing is a great way to get dirt off of your RV. However, you want to make sure to dry your RV off manually, do not let it air dry. This creates water spots. Clean the inside of your RV as if you are cleaning a house and the outside as a car, but take care when doing both. Your RV is always exposed to the elements and needs proper care and cleaning.
Have you ever wondered what to look for when buying any kind of RV? First off, do your research. Look up reviews for RVs. Listen to people who know what they’re talking about. Find people who have the RV you’re looking at and pick their brain. Before you buy an RV, check competitors if you’re buying form a retailer. If you’re buying used from an owner, have the RV checked first. Do a walkthrough of the RV. Take your time, buying an RV is a big decision, no need to be hasty. You want to get your money’s worth and get everything you pay for. During the walkthough, spend some time inside pretending you live in it. Walk around, pretend to cook in the kitchen, see if you can visualize all the people you plan to entertain inside and see how much space you have. Always take into account the weight capacity of your RV. As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to go over 80% of the total weight capacity, just to be safe. Make sure you get specific specifications, not just a “Oh yeah, that’ll totally work.” Again, do your research.
