I always use the Autoglym caravan and motorhome cleaner, it comes in a
500ml spray bottle costing about 6 or 7 pounds but its bloddy good
stuff. well worth it!

You wet a side of the caravan after generally giving the whole van a shower,
and then spray the wet side, and agitate with a car cleaning brush, and keep
going over that side until all the dirt is disolved then give it a good hose
off, then do another side, in the same way, after this you do the front and
back in the same way. Try not to use a sponge as its strong stuff and can
smell like amonia.
Dont use a power wash on a caravan, because the power of the water jet can
penetrate the seals, and strip the sealant off the caravan; i only ever use
a normal hose to wash mine with.

I use my dad's jet wash on the body of the van then polish with Mer. The jet
was gets off most of the green from the rubbers but the stubborn bits i use
an old toothbrush and good old Fairy liquid.
