Go Camping in it and smoke it with a campfire.... Boy I miss that smell but its getting close to that time again...Actually leave the windows open to air it out.

Leave the doors open overnight and let the skunks and Tom cats in. You'll have that fresh "farm yard" smell in the morning! LOL!

We've had our Springdale for 6 years now. We've done a LOT of camping, been around a LOT of campfires, done a lot of dinners and meals, have had several pets with us, and have had lots of overnight guests. Still, when the trailer is closed up for a period of time (especially in the winter months), and we open the door, there's still a "hint" of the new trailer smell!

All you can do is open the windows, run the furnace and air conditioner, and start using it. The "new smell" will get less and less. But it may never completely go away (unless you're a smoker or leave grease splattered on the walls after cooking).

Just a heads up, if it's a brand new camper the furnace will put out an newness odor when fired up for the first time. You might want to run it at home if possible with the windows and roof vents open so you don't have to put up with the new furnace smell the first night you run it when camping.

After 8 years of fairly heavy use, our still smells like new. I don't know if you can ever get rid of it but if it really bothers you, rent an ozonator to kill the smell.
