hey detail geeks, got my first rv job lined up, they just want a wash and wax. this is a whole new ball game for me. i need some tips on what to charge, is it like a boat charging by the foot? also do you have to wax the roof? what is a good quality wax this customer is all about paste wax.

I would use collinite 845.Need more info on pricing.Charge extra if you are gonna wash roof and becareful with the stuff up there can be brittle and crack.Starting price for me handwash pastewax would be 400.00 roof to wash extra 50.00.

If your going to wax roof buy hydro 2. If customer wants it waxed with paste I would charge additional 450.00.Never had a customer request to wax roof.You may need a helper on this.

Sweet thanks the average price in the area is right around 500, it's a 38 foot rv and the owner is an awesome customer so I was gonna do it for 450$. What all do you have to do for an rv? Just all the door jambs clean windows, wash and wax? Do people usually want the roof done?

I rarely do the roof after I tell them its additional $$$.gIve it a nice wash no jambs if you have a da 476 collinite will spread nice and speed up the process.Clean exterior glass and apply neverwet umbrella on the front windshield dress the tires and flaps .450 is a bargain price with the roof be safe and have fun.

Any wax or cleaner wax would work.You asked what wax is recommended and that's collinite in my opinion. I would not use hydro 2 on the Rv.Conditions and dilution has to be dead on or you will be rubbing off streaks till 2019.Keep it simple use what you have in terms of wax.

What kind of roof ?, fiberglass,rubber,other ?. If rubber no petroleum products. Last I saw rubber roof replacement if it gets screwed up is 8 to 15k or more.

Never done an RV. Do customers typically want the roof cleaned and waxed? How about when you do some polishing, do you also do the roof?

I don't offer doing work on the roof.
Most are aware of this before calling me.

One step for this one.
650.00
Polished the aluminum side panels too.

I don't like working on them and turn many away but this was for a good customer of mine so I did it. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200308/698c39ec8317994c661be22fe48291f9.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200308/3a8fea629e062e3362b206124ce8c074.jpg

The roof on many rvs is rubber so you cannot wax. special cleaner is used. not hard just be sure to rinse well expecailly the sides after as it will streak. I would suggest a cleaner wax. Will help with some of the dirt and oxidation on the sides. Good luck

with no roof 300-500 but if itís hammered you will want to charge more. I have coated a bunch with the Marine 31 coating that is 8oz for around $60 I usually charge extra $100 and have 4oz left over.

roofs are PIA hard to work on. I clean with mop then I usually use wet coat or megs HCW and rinse off.

last RV I did I feel off almost broke leg.
