Well I found a nice 8.5 x 16 enclosed the other day and got a pretty good deal on it but it does need a pretty good cleaning. Its a 2006 model and the fella took it back and forth to florida from ohio for bike week since new. Never washed the trailer once. it has the nasty grimey look running down the sides.

Anyone had any experience with what products work best for cleaning the enclosed trailers??????? I actually took some "mean green" from the dollar store and sprayed a small area and let it sit for a few minutes and then scrubbed it and it worked great, then the wife said that the back of the bottle said not to use it on painted metals.......

Any help would be appreciated!!!! Thanks fellas!

Shiny stuff attracts attention :nono:

Perfect, if it looks like it just came fresh off a 30,000 mile road trip the thieves shouldn't bother you one,
two the customers might pay you better as they might feel sorry for you, and three it makes it look like
you might actually have been working.

you can get some aluminum siding wash concentrate at home depot, i washed my travel trailer with it and it works good, it's in a clear gallon jug with green liquid.

This is the greatest stuff ever with a little chlorine: http://pressuretek.com/simplecherry.html You can read all up on it in the pressure washing section here on Lawnsite. And for touch ups, I recommend a Magic Eraser from MegaMart.

regular car wash might clean the trailer but it doesn't remove the black streaks (common to most white enclosed trailers) running down from the roof. need something a little stronger.

Korkay. Cheap all purpose cleaner that you should be able to get at a boat/RV place. Spray a bunch of it on one side at a time, scrub it down with a long handle brush and hose off. Will look like new. That stuff also works great on work truck floors and grimy interior panels.

Exactly, there something about that bare aluminum roof crap running down the sides that's hell to get off. If it weren't for the thousands of rivets a good waxing would do a great job of keeping the crap off once you get it clean.
