    Romahome R10 washing and waxing recommendations

    Hi everyone,
    I`m a newbie to this site, and have just bought my very first micro camper van - a rather sweet R10 Romahome - and I can`t wait to start roaming :-) I would like to give her a good wash and waxing, especially now with Winter upon us. Does anyone have any recommendations for the best solutions to use? I am most concerned about maintaining the pop top roof, which appears to be a slightly different finish to the bodywork. I`d appreciate your input!
    Looking forward to maybe getting to meet some of you in the not so distant future:-)
    Thank you,
    Bridget

    Hi Bridget and welcome to the forum. I use Fenwicks Motorhome Cleaner - this is formulated for both metal and BRP / plastics used in van construction. I also have a no name caravan cleaner I tend to use this undiluted when there is a stubborn patch of road dirt that needs to be shifted. More important is to invest in some Waxoil and a garden sprayer then get down and dirty spraying the underside of your van earlier this autumn we had a long conversation on the forum about Waxoil

    Before you start applying Waxoil you would need to pressure wash the underside get rid of all the old road crud.

          kernowjon Thank you for the information, that's really helpful. I'll check out the waxoil conversation just now. I hope I can manage to get under the van! It's not going to be laid up over winter, as it's going to be used regularly, although not necessarily for overnight sleeping...brrrrrr! So excited - new adventures on the horizon

              Getting under the van is not a problem if you get a garden sprayer - Gasgas used one and so did I - it will probably be gunged-up and dead afterwards but it is doable. - This time of year you will have to keep standing your can of Waxoil in boiling water - heat it to above 20 degrees c so only a small amount in the sprayer reservoir at a time.

                  kernowjon I have no difficulty getting under the van, getting out again is where the problem is.
