What about the feelings of the "campers" with their campfires watching someone drive in and park their condo next to them blocking their view of the mountains?

Seems we can all complain about something but it's better that we get along.

There are only 3 ways to remove odors.
1 Remove the source (can't replace the entire interior of a MH), wipe everything down, vacuum carpets, anything with fabric. Air everything out.
2. Mask the odor using sprays smell good things (not all that effective). 3. Use ozone gerenrator to remove the odor, but be very careful as the ozone can attack other things.

Saucers of bleach placed about the MH when parked can be effective as anything. Some people often use open boxes of Baking soda to try to absorb the odors. Above are the methods so-called "Fire Restoration" companies use.

Next time younotice a fore shut the windows on the side the fire is. Open windows on other side if you must. that will limit amount of smoke smell you getinto MH. good luck. ed

If they block your view of the mountains, you should have parked in that spot.

SAILS, I'm a smoker. Will the baking soda help? I'm afraid that it I used the bleach, I'd knock it over and end up with a white spot on my couch or carpet. Baking soda or powder? Does it matter?

Baking soda will not help a smoker but it may help eliminate the smoke smell.

Yes, my rig was downwind of our campfire smoke and now I have to find a way to get rid of the odor. Any ideas ??

Thanks in advance.


I spend far to many days in a hospital (place of employment) yearning for the smell of a campfire... When we go out on the weekends in the MH the first thing we do after we get the o'l gal all leveled up and the awning out (cause you aren't 'home' unless the awnings out), is start a fire... THere is nothing better smelling in the world... In that environment... When i open the doors I want the MH to smell like camp fire and smores and pine... Now, if i lived in it full time i'd have to say that smell would have to go... When we get home from a long weekend, the laundry room smells like a campfire and thats just not a good smell in a home...
Anyway, long story longer... Air it out... don't try and mask it with other smells... if it truly doesn't go away.... Sell it and buy something new!!

We go 2 ways, camp fire in a can and wood to bake the potatoes. Can't beat potatoes cooked in wood ash.
