I use Dawn mixed with warm water in a bucket - best to do on a cloudy day when aluminum is cool - rinse using a hose - microfiber to dry

I would use a shower enclosure and a bar of Irish Spring. Don't let the neighbors see you naked.

Thumbs up

If you use a wax or paint sealer on your Airstream, stay away from the grease cutting dish soaps, cut grease, cut wax.
Stick with the good car wash products. I like this.

Along with this....no scratches.

I used to use Irish Spring (for myself), and being in California with its many nude beaches, I don't worry about what the neighbors see...

but I do wash our Airstream exterior with Meguiar's Deep Crystal Car Wash and then apply Meguiar's Mirror Glaze Professional Polymer Sealant #20 once a year to keep filiform corrosion under control!

Yes, but Crescent City is a bit chillier than San Diego.

Important point Bob made. Don't use dish washing soaps if you wax your trailer as they will remove the wax. Use some type of automotive soap.
