We washed the carpet. That didn't eliminate the smell. I hope the previous owners didn't spray all the cushions in the trailer with Febreze. However, as the smell is still there and I have scrubbed all the walls and cabinets, and washed the carpet, that is about all that is left.

I wish I had more of your problem! Our 320 Crusader suffers (well not suffers) but still emanates a slight chemical odor from the various materials used in construction.I have in the past doused it with extra-strength Fabreeze which lasts for a while and then wears off gradually.Yours doesn't sound so much of a spray on-or application of something as much as perhaps something that is still there.Have you looked for something as simple as dryer sheets stored away somewhere?

We set out a handful of coffee beans in a bowl or coffee filter. I have no idea why, but it seems effective taking odors away.

Me still thinks you need to check for water damage in ceiling, walls, floor, behind cabinets. Mold and mildew can put off an odor that can come and go according to humidity and moist conditions. I had a leak in the metal siding on the front of my previous trailer. Started leaking around the window seal. Got the insulation wet, then the wood, then mold and mildew, inside the wall. You would never know it unless you took the window out and looked down the inside of the wall. Hope this isn't your problem. It can be a me$$!
