If You are going anywhere near La Rochelle then there is a great jet wash that has a gantry which you can pull along side of and reach over to do the roof, does anyone know if there are any like it in the UK
I use a step ladder, then an extendable floor sqeegee. If a step ladder is too short or unstable, try fastening some foam or an old pillow to a set of ladders, the cushioning effect will protect the edge of the roof of your van.
We have a roof window that opens right up, by having some small stepladders inside we can get up almost like driving a tank. Then feed the jet wash through to the operator and hey presto they can spray away with any debris spraying away from the roof.
Hi - Even though I've only got a small one I wanted to be safely perched, not struggling to keep my feet on the thin treads of your average stepladder. I looked at all sorts, and finally bought some XXL aluminium, with much wider treads than usual. Found them to look at on Ladderstore.com, but got better price at Focus DIY £49-99p for 5 tread, goes up about £10 for each size. Bigger is still very steady with small top plastic shelf to put things/lean on. The name on them is HAILO. Ladderstore also do bits and bobs to put on the legs to stop sinking/wobbling. Good place for a browse. - Regards, Helena
if your using a jet wash what out you dont blow all the decals off also dont put it near jloints and fittings at full power.....
I just purchased a brsh for £10.99 at the local caravan store. Its like an extendable broom with water injected in to the brush so as to aid cleaning. The brush is quite soft so shouldnt scatch. Very good for getting at the luton front for cleaning.
