A Quick Guide to Keeping Your Caravan Fresh, Shiny, and New
Purchasing a Caravan or RV can be expensive.
Because of this innate value of an RV or caravan, it is imperative to do a little bit of maintenance to keep it in mint condition, allowing you to garner the biggest bang for your buck.
As caravan experts with over 40 years of experience in the caravan camping industry, Caravan RV Camping has now compiled a brief overview of the best cleaning products currently available on the caravanning market.
The Camco Company, named one of North Carolina’s Top 100 Businesses 6 years in a row, was founded in 1966 by a man named Don Caine.
Originally named C&M Products, Caine worked alongside his wife Theresa, manufacturing and selling what would become Camco’s very first product: Trailer Plumbing Antifreeze.
In the 50 years since its foundation, Camco has ultimately risen through the ranks of the caravanning industry to become one of the most renowned manufacturers of caravan products worldwide.
What follows is a brief description of a few Camco-branded customer favorites which have been proven to provide the ultimate cleaning power in combination with an attractively affordable price.
Not only can fungus and mildew cause extensive health problems, such as respiratory difficulties and nausea, they can also literally eat away at your caravan floors and walls.
Because, by nature, camping generally entails wet, dewy environments hospitable to mold growth, acquiring a quality mildew and stain remover can prove itself to be a valuable investment in the long run.
Camco’s custom mildew stain remover is a great preventative product, with an application that requires only a few sprays.
Giving your RV a nice wash can be useless without a final application of wax sealant.
Although washing will remove dirt and grime temporarily, your machine will immediately be filthy again once you hit the road if you neglect to apply a final protective layer.
Camco’s Premium Wax Sealant has been proven to have increased water beading capabilities, a brighter shine, and a longer lifespan than other sealants on the market.
To use, simply apply the sealant onto a clean cloth or sponge, apply it directly onto your RV, and then simply buff it off for superior protection and shine.
As its name suggests, waterproofing refers to the act of preventing water from penetrating a material.
However, waterproofing does more than just protect your awning from raindrops.
Acting as a barrier between the environment and the material, an effective waterproofer can protect a caravan awning from many types of damage and wear, including (but not limited to) UV damage, mud splashes, and bird droppings.
While many awnings are advertised as “waterproof” or “water resistant”, after an extended period of use, their protective layers become worn and inefficient.
Camco’s affordable awning water proofer allows you to restore your awning to manufacturer’s condition with one quick, wash-resistant, application.
