Top tips for cleaning your caravan/camper trailer

It’s in the back of your mind – the caravan/camper trailer needs a good clean inside and out. Here are some easy tips to help you get this job done quick and easy:

  • Do not use high pressure cleaners – it can allow water to seep into potentially weak seals or small gaps.
  • Wash by hand with a good quality detergent – car detergent works well for caravans too.
  • Use a sponge or brush with an extension handle, or use a stepladder to reach all outside parts of your vehicle.
  • Start at the top and work your way down to prevent run offs on already washed areas.
  • Use glass cleaner and a good cloth or paper towel to clean the windows.
  • Wash the canvas with water and a brush only and ensure it is completely dry before folding it back up – this will avoid mildew growing.
  • Vacuum the floor inside, dust all surfaces and give it a good wipe down with a moist cloth.
  • Wipe out cupboards and clean out the fridge like you will do with yours at home.
  • Do regular water tank maintenance and cleaning
  • Ensure everything is well maintained and in good working order – this includes the wheels, electrical, lights, etc.
  • Store your caravan carefully – ask us how!

Now you can get back to your active lifestyle, knowing your caravan is ready to go anytime you wish to take that next trip!
