that camper smell

Any ideas on how to get that camper smell out of my 28ft Silverback? Is it glue is it antifreeze combination of all sorts of smells. Not to is not the septic as I have had that sanitized in the fall. Thanks in advance.

Take a cookie sheet and cover the bottom with a 1/2 inch or so with coffee grounds .

Let it sit for a few hours.

I assume you're asking about a new RV. The above may help some. You might add several crumpled up newspapers around the unit (ink and paper absorbs ordor). The short of it is ... just like a new car smell, after a few uses with the windows open and such ... the glues and resins cure and it mostly fades away on its own.

May I suggest you open all of the cabinets prop them if need be upper and lower.
In all of the outside storages place a container of coffee and or drier sheets.

Take the cushions outside and spray with lysol and let them air out.

Is it new to you? If so, is that the smell of insecticide?

Out of curiosity, how long have you owned this trailer?

Could be insecticide... Huh didn't think of that. And Oakman,I've had it for three years but haven't used it on the road, it has been our "addition". Just haven't made the time to hit the road...yet. so it's been sitting a lot.
