Air Filter Unit for Motorhome

Does anyone have any experience or information with stand alone air filtration units that can be used in a motorhome? We are looking for a unit that can filter dust from the air in the coach.

You can use the same systems as used in homes. We use a Living Air Ionizer Ozoneator that cleans the air. It does help in reducing the dust. If you have your windows open you will always have dust no matter what you do. The screens will not stop it from blowing in.

I have used the Bionaire and found that with the ion generator running they tend to charge the wood and paneled surfaces nearby so that they attract dirt and dust very badly. When I cleaned it up the cleaning rags looked more like I had been working in a coal mine.

Whatever you choose check out the cost, lifespan, bulk and availability of the filters. If you can't get them locally then you will have to stock up and if the packaging is bulky that could be a problem. If the packaging is fragile then they may not stay intact until you use them.

walmart has a small unit that works well in our bedroom. the hepa filter lasts about 4 months and the prefilter needs to be washed every 30 days. it gets the dust and talc powder so we can breathe easier. i believe it costs $33.00.
