I've used the usual CT18 Truckwash on the same van for years with no obvious damage to the paint/aluminium in that time.

Works for me.

Hi johno
If the van is fibreglass do not use anything that has ammonia in it as it will cause the white fibreglass to yellow most automotive washes have ammonia in them marine washes for fibreglass boats generally don't and ct18 truck wash has no ammonia ct18 is my preferred wash or plain old dish washing detergent hope this helps

Agree truck wash is the best, either one depending on if you need wax or not. I have washed my vehicles and vans with it for years and it doesn't seem to have corrosion issues that some detergents have. If you buy it from a truck maintenance type place you can get large containers at a much reduced price per litre

I have been known to take it to a car wash when I am away.

After a thorough scrub and under body wash, I douse it in the wax that comes with the deal.
