My 3h gooseneck needs a bath and a wax before winter, and I can't do it due to injury ( can't climb ladder) Where do people take their trailers for this? Is there even such a thing?
Who says you can't trail ride an OTTB?

If you have a self service car wash in your area which has a truck height bay(either inside or outside), you could wash and then use the liquid wax setting after. Not as good as a hand wax but it's ladder free.

I would think a car detailer could do it?

There are some car detailers that will actually come to your house. You might want to investigate that option.

I used to do this as a side business -- used to wash and wax my trailer and had people at my old barn ask if I'd do theirs as well. I've moved to a new area but am wiling to travel to your house/barn/etc. on weekends. I can pull out my old price sheet if anyone is interested let me know. don't have the ability to do it at my new house anymore (only enough trailer parking for mine unfortunately) but could do some in Bellingham for the next six weeks until we move (10/12). Or come to your place.

Email me in blue if anyone is interested in having their trailers detailed (can just do wash and wax, or full detail - mats come out, shop vac, inside detail, etc.).

I have references!

Almost next to Tufts large animal hospital on route 30 in North Grafton.
Heading from Tufts towards Grafton it is on the left.

The name escapes me right now; Sutters, Sutcliff, or something a bit like that.

It USED TO BE Dana Transport, I remember that much.

If it is aluminum you probably want the acid wash first.

If you are nowhere near Grafton try any truck wash facility.
They have the height, length and width to handle BIG trailers and they do compete with each other on price.

(Obviously) they also know how to acid wash.
Don't worry about "acid", it won't take off much more metal than vinegar or lemon juice.
0024 - Guess my license class.
