Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner

Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner, Best Caravan Cleaner, Practical Caravan Awards 2022

Key considerations when you’re looking for the best caravan cleaner are likely to be its effectiveness, the likelihood of it damaging the caravan, and whether or not it will leave streaks. Step forward, Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner.

Made specifically for use on caravans, it’s suitable for cleaning off all manner of dirt, ranging from black streaks and green algae to traffic film and general muck. The cleaner is also safe to use on all caravan surfaces – whether you’re looking to clean plastics and sealants or acrylic windows and aluminium, Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner will attract the grime, returning the bodywork to its original glory.

We also like that there are no aggressive agents in it either. This limits the prospect of damage to the caravan, which is always a risk when using harsher cleaning agents.
