OK guys, I think this one is for your DW.
Everyone knows that a TT or an HTT have an interior odor, whether it's new or old. Now, being open on both ends, did anyone find an air freshener that works good..............or do you simply let it be.

My DW is not the fussy one with our RV. Sometimes I get the feeling that she is just along for the ride, but usually enjoys herself once RVing.

My RV still has some "new RV" smell left. We leave it be.

No mold or mildew smell here. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my bathroom vent is permanently left open.

When we had ours, we did as the Beatles "Let it Be". Opening and closing the door or running the air tends to air it out.

Other than needing to Febreze the bathroom on some occasions.... we let it be.

Once the "new" smell was gone, we just let it be. We do use a nice smelling candle/lamp on the dinette table, but that's just in the evenings. The rest of the time, just fresh air.

Nothing better than fresh air. In appropriate temperatures & where I have electric, whenever I leave the RV I turn the A/C on to fan only. Circulates air throughout the rig, including the ceiling vents. Great for reducing the humidity too.

in the 5 years we've owned our Roo, we've never needed any freshener. at the beginning of each season, we just open both ends up, lift the canvas up so air can move and leave it out for the afternoon.

the regular fresh air does the trick.

When we park the trailer in storage,I hang a couple of dryer/softener sheets up, you can attach them to the cabinet handles. I only do this in winter because the trailer is closed up. In summer I leave the bathroom vent open.
