    I would say 170.00 + materials.
    For one coat of wax. Most recommend 2 coats.
    But the 2nd coat goes very fast.
    That is about 40% of time it took 1st coat @ 17.50 hr extra.
    In your case 10hrs 1st coat ($170), 4 hr 2nd coat.($70)
    Then add 15% on what you had to buy. (For gas and stocking fees.)
    Let them pick the grade of wax.(most people have a favorite, and they feel involved this way)
    Remember they get what they pay for.

    2 coats of wax should last 6 months of heavy driving.
    Take your total price and divide by 6 .
    That price per month is your selling angle.
    The wax at the car/ motorhome wash last only 2 washes or 30 days.
    They won't last longer than that due to enviromental standards of water break down time in public sewers.

    I would charge them $150 and make it seem like a good deal.

    Before I was done I would mess with the electrical system and weaking them seams on their seats. Be sure to tell them before they leave that you also work on electrical and upholestry! :lol:

    Re: How much would you charge.....?

    Okay, any one of you can do this for me. I charge 300.00.
    Take into consideration that the MH is almost 12' tall and 10' wide. Wash it alone is 75.00 bucks. The trailer would be 25.00. That is 100.00 alone.
    :lol:

    150.00 to wash & wax the MH. 75.00 to wash & wax the trailer. 75.00 for all the extras. I charge about $25 to $30 an hour. Its alot of hard work and it is hard on ya running up and down that ladder over and over. The wax I buy is $10 a bottle and go through a bottle doing it. My buffer was cheap but all the accessories(wool bonnets, terry cloth bonnets, applicators, etc, etc.)cost alot more when you have bought as much crap as I have over the years. It takes all of the accessories to do this large of a motor home and have to do a full load of laundry when I am done.
    I would charge 200.00 to do the MH by itself, but give him a pkg deal since this guy has both for me to do.
    Thanks for the input, I wanted to make sure that I wasnt undercutting myself. Anytime I need some cheap labor I will make sure that I call you guys!!! :lol: :Lol:

    Re: How much would you charge.....?

    I'd say anywhere around 10-15 dollars per hour, plus materials.

    Edit: Oops....outdated :grin:

    300 bucks is good, lol.
