Have you just tried opening all the storage doors, closets, cabinets, doors & windows, lift the bed and open the sofa on a couple of pretty days? Just let'er air out and let mother nature do her thing?

I wish there were a "like" button. Open everything thing up, use vinegar and water and then when dry put the essential oils on the cotton balls everywhere!

We use the pull up air fresheners. When we are camping, they come open. When we are home, we close it down. It still keeps the TT smelling fresh. Cooking indoors will add to odors getting in fabrics(cushions, carpet, shades, etc. Try to vent as much as possible when cooking. When frying, try to do that outdoors. Keep the AC filter clean too. When you're home, open the rig up and air out.

I may have this confused with something else, but, I want to say several years ago somebody had an odor in their TT and turned the furnace on for several hours to "cook" the odor out. Then opened it up and aired it out.

It goes without saying that sometimes I Can't Remember uh er Some things....

It has always been my luck that once a camper gets it's "smell" whether good or bad it always has that "smell". I used to battle this, and learned to deal with it. There is solutions that will last a few days or even a week, but eventually they wear off and your "smell" comes back. Now we just try really hard to keep the NEW SMELL as long as possible!

Everything has a smell...some smells we all hate and some we love and then there are those that are just annoying or you dont' notice (like smokers, pets)

The only campers I don't notice an odor of some kind are those used a LOT. Anything that is closed up will fill will odors - stale air if nothing else.

I put a renuzit air freshener (the old jello kind) in the camper a few days before we go and it helps a lot, then we use it and either the smell lessens or we just get used to it. Let it sit a month and it's back.

Not a bad smell, just a camper smell. it's sorta nice now...reminds me of the good times spent camping.

Now diesel oil fumes..I can't stand them as they bring back memories of a bad oil furnace as a kid and a smelly cold house!
