The "Streakin Beacon" does wash campers of all shapes and sizes. I would be careful on letting them use the automated machine on any that I owned, as they are not very forgiving to loose things and have been known to scratch some vehicles. With that said,I HAVE used them and also Iowa80 Truck-o-mat without issue, along with some smaller "mom/pop" truck HAND washes to wash my units. Remember they are designed for commercial truck use, but they will wash them with brushes if asked, at least for me they have. The last time I used the Beacon,it cost me like $42 for complete wash/and spray on wax.

Used one. It was not automated; a bunch of guys with wands, just like a DYI car wash. I was on the road and used them because I could not find a regular car wash with enough clearance. Paid about $40; fair job. Normally I wash it myself at home.

I would not go through an automated one; too many delicate things to get knocked off. Our RV's are not built like a Kenworth.
