Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

I think the ozone machine treatment would be your best choice! I understand that many car dealers have these.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

'03 winni journey

So decided to purchase the coach because it is such good condition and take a chance on being able to sanitize the interior! Wish me luck and thanks to all who replied.

Welcome aboard!!

I LOVE Vancouver and Victoria! Beautiful part of the country!!

Try BAKING SODA spread it on the carpet, let it sit for a few days, then vacuum it all out.

I like the ozone machine idea too.

Best wishes and post pictures!! Keep us informed and WELCOME ABOARD!!

Kind of tempting right now with the weather to unwrap, load up and take a trip. Beautiful sunny days but I hear the rain is coming. Enjoy your new place on wheels.
