Hi there
          Ive just bought a Bailey Orion and was wondering about what to use to wash it? Do I have to use the stuff for caravans or can I use washing up liquid or car shampoos?

Washing up liquid contains salts that you dont want anywhere near your car or caravan.

Wash your hands with washing up liquid and then dry them. Then re-wet your hands and rub them together. Your hands will foam again.

I give mine a quick wash with car shampoo and then use proper caravan shampoo. The caravan stuff will help remove marks the car shampoo doesnt.

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

Car shampoo, same as what I use on my motor.

Don't be fooled in to buying caravan specific stuff.

XV yes?

Elbow Grease is the real thing. You can probably buy it at other stores too.Black streaks just disappear. Never use anything else. Our new caravan still looks new after four years.
