TRAILER: Clean


Because it’s a small space with a lot of foot traffic in and out, you may find that your

trailer gets messy fast. But a little bit of tidying goes a long way, and there’s no better

feeling than having a clean trailer.


  1. Strip the Stalls and Remove the Mats: Scrub the floor and walls. Scrub the mats outside. Let everything dry before putting it back together again.

  2. Fridge, Freezer, and Cabinets: Take out everything from your fridge, freezer, and cabinets. This is a good time to check expiration dates on cans, boxes, and bottles and dispose of anything past its prime.

  3. Fixtures and Surfaces: Spray and wipe down all surfaces. In the kitchen, focus on countertops, tables, cabinets, and exteriors of appliances, like your microwave, stove, and oven.

  4. Air Vents and Filters: Most air filters can be taken outside and hosed in a matter of seconds, giving you fresh air in a snap.

  5. Window Screens: Use a vacuum attachment to clean your window screens while they’re in place. Take your screens out and give them a good spray with a hose to dislodge debris from your windows.

  6. Floor: Every so often, give your floors a deep clean by sweeping thoroughly and mopping.

  7. Natural Cleaner: Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle for a non-toxic cleaner that cuts through grime and loosens dirt.

  8. Exterior: Take a broom to the roof, and sweep down any old leaves or twigs from the tops of your slide-outs. If you’re going for a full top-to-bottom shine, give your tires a quick clean with a spray-on tire cleaner.

  9. Freshwater Tank: Giving your freshwater tank a good flushing. First, open up the valve to let your tank empty onto the ground. Then, run a clean hose to add water into your tank, letting it run out the other side. This will push any wayward minerals or debris out. If you need, use a special freshwater tank sanitizer.

  10. Drains. For your shower and sink drains, to keep smells away, pour 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar, and 1 tbsp of dish detergent into the drains. Follow with 1 cup of boiling water.
