The PRIMA guide to caravan cleaning

After months of winter inactivity, your caravan or motorhome is screaming for a clean, no matter how well you have buffered it from the elements. And what better time to undertake a good caravan clean-up than the traditional spring clean?

Take it in your stride and enjoy polishing it up to an envious gleam with our selection of motorhome and caravan spring cleaning products, all made to make easy work of cleaning up your ‘van in time for summer.

What is the best way to clean your caravan?

This depends on your personal preference but always, always give yourself plenty of room around the perimeter of your caravan. You will need it. That space will give you room to manoeuvre yourself, and your ladder, into all those hard-to-reach awkward areas.

Caravan exterior cleaning

There are plenty of caravan exterior cleaning tips out there, but our favourite is work from the top down. The roof takes the brunt of the British weather so will need a lot of attention. It also means any dirty run-off will not ruin the hard work you’ve already put in! Another good tip is to lower one end of your caravan, so the roof stands on a slight slope. This stops pooling and enables dirty water and suds to run off in a controlled direction without splashing and dripping randomly.

Exterior caravan cleaning products

These are the cheerleader products that inspire those admiring gazes as you pull up to your pitch –the ones which not only shine your caravan or motorhome but protect and care for it, too. These should be used for the first big wash of the season to get rid of the winter grime, and any grubby residue from last year.

The brain-child of Gary Mabbutt, ex Spurs captain and England international football player.

Interior caravan cleaning

When you step into your ‘van, you want that ‘just right’ feeling. And that is the thing; that feeling is achieved before you leave. There is nothing worse than a perfectly wrapped empty box.

Getting the interior clean after storage might not be as hard going as cleaning the exterior, but it will certainly need a freshen-up before, and during, your trip.

Check out our Spring Cleaning section for a selection of upholstery shampoo, sweet-smelling Thetford bathroom cleaners, and a handy 12V vacuum cleaner to make your mobile home perfect.  

Caravan Toilet Chemicals

After being sat for months on end the main cause for concern is the toilet. Cassette toilets need special caravan-standard chemicals to maintain to cleanse the bowl and tank. So, why not choose the best? Thetford toilet chemicals have been formulated to clean and protect cassette toilets without damaging any internal parts. This can be a complicated area, learn more by reading our guide to toilet chemicals

For a complete spring clean to really match the beautiful caravan-wrapping, the other option would be to install a whole new unit with a Thetford Fresh Up kit for a ‘just bought’ feel. Read our guide to choosing the correct Thetford Fresh Up for your caravan or motorhome here
