Regular washing and waxing is essential if you want to keep your unit in peak condition. Bird droppings, algae and mud can all take their toll on your van’s bodywork, so even if it’s not one of your favourite jobs it should be an important part of your maintenance routine. Personally, I find it quite a rewarding task (that’s the masochist in me!), but using the right products definitely makes the job a lot easier and will offer your unit more protection. Fortunately, there are some great caravan cleaning products in the Black Friday sale, covering wheels to windscreens.
Here, I’ve picked out some of the whopping Black Friday caravan cleaning products – and there are some particularly great discounts from highly recommended premium brand Autoglym too. These aren’t the only great savings though – there are three Black Friday caravan cover deals you’ll want to know about, as well as some unmissable Black Friday caravan awning deals too.

Great for all exterior surfaces, you apply this Aqua Wax to your unit while it’s still wet straight after washing. I like the fact that it’s an all-in-one solution and is easy to apply – it comes with two microfibre cloths. The result is a hard wax finish which lasts some six weeks. The massive saving of 58% for what is an award-winning brand makes this one of the best deals I’ve seen.
If you’ve going to clean any part of your vehicle, I’d suggest that windows should be a priority – you literally have to look through them! The Fast Glass window cleaner comes in a spray dispenser for optimum coverage and ease of use and can be used both in and outside your vehicle. I like its ease of use and the fact it can be used on a number of surfaces, including glass, mirrors, plastics, paintwork and screens used in car video and navigation equipment.
I don’t know about you, but unless my wheels are gleaming it doesn’t feel like I’ve given my van a proper going over. Maybe it’s because wheels get so noticeably dirty, but a freshly clean wheel shines all the brighter. You need a top product to get through all that road dirt and brake dust and this is just the job – suitable for lacquered alloys, painted and plastic finishes.
Designed for your initial wash, this shampoo cuts through grease and dirt but is pH neutral meaning that it won’t damage your paintwork. I know that many caravanners and motorhomers swear by this long lasting and hard-working product which is also cost effective – 2.5 litres can do up to 125 washes (assuming two capfuls per wash diluted in 10 litres of water). If you take advantage of the deal featured here, that works out at just under 12 pence a wash!
It’s all too easy to relegate the cleaning of your vehicle’s interior for another day. However, I’ve always found that keeping a spick and span front seat area in particular makes for a more pleasant driving experience. And when you come to sell, a clean dashboard is always going to be more attractive to potential buyers. Enter Meguiar’s Quik Interior Detailer, which comes in an easy-to-dispense gun for a matt finish. The formula includes sun-blocking agents to guard against fading and cracking.
This all-purpose shampoo comes with an inbuilt gun attachment that you can fix a hose to. It’s effective and easy to use and delivers a foam coating that you sponge and then hose off. It’s suitable for all exterior finishes and there’s no need to use a potentially body damaging pressure washer. At £12.99 for two litres, I think this deal offers cracking value.
