How to Clean and Maintain your RVs Exterior
At Expedition Motorhomes we pride ourselves on being the premier provider of California motor home rentals.

From helping build and recommend itineraries and destinations to matching clients with the perfect Los Angeles motor home for their road trip, we love nothing more than helping build dream vacations for our renters. We truly leave no rock left unturned, including impeccable maintenance to our Los Angeles motorhome rental fleet. If you are curious about our RV exterior maintenance technique, or perhaps you have a motorhome of your own and are looking for some tips, what follows is a quick guide to cleaning and maintaining an RV’s exterior.
Why is Exterior Maintenance Important?
Cleaning and maintaining the exterior of your motorhome is critical to extending its lifespan and catching any small problems before they turn into major issues. Simply put, a well-kept motorhome – like any other vehicle – will last much longer. Additionally, by conducting routine cleaning and maintenance you are more likely to catch issues like chips, cracks, rust spots, or leaks before they potentially transform into catastrophic problems down the line.
To truly maximize efficiency when cleaning our Calabasas RV rental fleet, our team at Expedition Motorhomes has a reliable garage full of tools to get the job done. Pressure washers are invaluable as are extending brushes to clean the hard to reach spots on these large vehicles. Non-abrasive cleaning solutions and microfiber towels allow us to detail the exteriors without causing any damage or minute scratches.
With decades of experience cleaning our California motorhome rentals, the pros at Expedition Motorhomes have developed a foolproof system as well as a handful of helping tricks of the trade.
Firstly, to ensure the best final results, we try to clean the exterior of each Los Angeles motor home in a garage or in the shade. This prevents streakiness and an uneven finished product.
When cleaning the entire exterior of a Los Angeles motorhome rental, we always work from the top down. Generally, that means taking a power washer onto the roof to rinse off any built-up dirt and grime. Before you spray it down, make sure all windows and vents are closed. After spraying it down, a soft-bristled brush will allow you to detail it without causing any damage.
Cleaning the sidewalls of an RV is very similar to cleaning the roof. Spraying it with a power washer is a great start, and finishing with a microfiber cloth or fine bristled brush and nonabrasive cleaning solution will leave it looking brand new. Again, work from the top down to avoid streaking.
Exterior maintenance of an RV is only the tip of the iceberg and, if this sounds like a lot of work, maybe you are better off using California motor home rentals for your RV vacations. The passionate staff at Expedition Motorhomes takes immaculate care of our Los Angeles motor home fleet, which allows our clients to worry exclusively about making the most of their vacation. Whether you are planning a road trip this winter or are looking forward to next spring or summer season, give Expedition Motorhomes a call today. We’re always eager to get more folks on the road!
What Customers Say
It was awesome. It was so great. It was so fantastic. We loved the RV. It was so accommodating. It was only three of us: [me] my husband and my son and we had a wonderful time. Thank you for renting to us and we will definitely be renting again.
From Toronto, Canada. We came down to Expedition to pick up an RV for a special surfing vacation for my son here who turned 15 this week. I gotta tell ya, it’s been an awesome experience. We went up the coast to Santa Barabara and down. We had perfect sites of the beach; looking at the ocean. He got a chance to experience surfing the California way – an overall great experience. RV was just the way to go. Made it a beautiful experience for us. The people at Expedition were perfect; helped us out throughout… were very kind and generous and we just had a great vacation because of it. So I recommend anyone whose thinking about it… Definitely call Expedition. You’ll enjoy it and you won’t regret it.
We flew from Europe and rented a motor home from ExpeditionMotorHomes.com. And, it was a fantastic experience from start to end. When we arrived, we had… the staff was very friendly; taught us how to use the motor home. They had videos online you can practice with and look at. And the actual trip, the quality of the motor home was perfect. This was the first time for my family and I and it will not be the last. We will be doing this again and obviously from the same supplier because everything from start to finish was perfect.
I have rented from this company seven times in the last eight years. They do an amazing job. Most recently, I had errored on my departure date (I should have looked at the contract when they sent it to me!) and when I arrived a day early, they accommodated me. Thank you, Matt, for making a year without Martin easy! I recommend this company to anyone wanting to rent an RV. It’s so much easier than you think.
The Expedition Motorhome family took great care of our family. This is our third straight year renting trailers and RV’s from Expedition and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. They are a small shop with big customer service. The RV’s are in great condition on the inside and under the hood. We drive to the Tahoe area from LA every year and they make the long haul with no problems. We camped with other families who rented from other vendors and had nothing but problems. See you next year!
Was the first time we rented and RV and we had a great experience with Expedition Motor Homes. WE travel with the jamboree 23 ft for about 20 days around California and nevada without any problem.Everything worked the way it should. At the office Martin and Ilda where super nice and helpful with us. Definitely we are coming back!
We had a great experience with Expedition Motor Homes. My family and I rented an RV for a weekend camping trip, something we had never done before. The staff was extremely helpful and informative, and everything went smoothly. The RV was in great working order, very clean and great looking. We will definitely rent from the again in the future!
This was our first rental from Expedition. Everything went smoothly. They had excellent customer service from the beginning to the return. The RV we rented was in great condition, with the exception of a few minor issues. These issues didn’t cause any trouble, and I know they will have them fixed for the next renter. We are already looking forward to our next RV vacation, and we will be sure to use Expedition!
