Out of all the caravan cleaning products we tested at Practical Caravan the MudBuster Caravan & Motorhome Exterior & Interior Wash & Wax came out as the best of the bunch. Our product tester loved the fact that it can be used inside and out, and found the trigger spray especially useful on stubborn marks. It even waxes the van at the same time as washing it. The MudBuster Caravan & Motorhome Exterior & Interior Wash & Wax is not the cheapest product tested, but in our expert’s opinion it’s the best caravan cleaner on the UK market today.

It’s essential that you clean your caravan’s exterior before winter sets in, and then again before the touring starts again. Why do we say that this is essential? We’ve found that leaving a caravan dirty is guaranteed to result in the growth of mould and algae during the winter. Any scuffs or deposits of stickiness or mud will give algae a chance to stick to the surface of your van. By the time you want to go touring again in the spring, you’ll be faced with an unsightly green caravan, and possibly worse. Algae can invade nooks and crannies and sneak under the seals as it colonises the surface. It can be very hard to remove it once that happens.
You may be feeling content if you’ve paid out for special caravan covers to protect your pride and joy. However it’s even more essential to wash, dry and wax your caravan thoroughly before leaving it covered up. This is because the wind will blow the covers around, and if there’s any dirt or dust to be found it will act as a scourer, leaving your caravan’s exterior panels pretty scratched.
Prevention is better than cure, and all you need to do is give your caravan a good wash in autumn and spring. If you choose the right caravan cleaner the muck and dust will come off pretty easily, and then you can apply a layer of wax to protect it even further.
In this review we will focus on the MudBuster Caravan & Motorhome Exterior & Interior Wash & Wax, which was competitively priced at £9.99 at the time of our test.
Here’s a surprise: in terms of sheer cleaning power, this mix got under grime more easily than Fenwick’s excellent brew. Cleaning with this spray product really was effortless. But is it such a good all-rounder as everybody’s favourite cleaner? That depends.
The litre bottle produces 70 litres of diluted cleaning solution.
As well as your caravan’s exterior, it can tackle most of the interior surfaces, even including the carpets and upholstery. The trigger-spray head is another neat touch, because it eases application on internal surfaces and on tough external marks that require a quick blast of neat cleaner to restore them to their former glory.
