Mine used to stink due to it being converted to a mobile home and being well worn. It temporarily became uninhabitable due to my dog discovering that high pile carpeting is an excellent pee pad, and since no effort, even professional carpet cleaning managed to get the smell entirely out, the dog could detect it and dogs almost always use scent as a marker, so she continued to pee over and over again in the same spot, even if let out a few minute's before. It got so overwhelming I ended up removing all the carpet pad and all, replacing it with self stick tile. Smell is completely gone. Clean up is a breeze. The old carpet was also holding water each time it rained on one side, yet the subfloor was dry during removal and hasnt shown signs of leaking since, so there's a mystery.

Point to keep in mind is, if your traveling companion has paws or hooves, avoid campers with high pile carpet.
