air purifier for RV

With several area's around the nation as well as Canada experiencing severe wildfires and heavy smoke, does anyone have suggestions for cleaning the air inside the RV to help, especially at night when trying to sleep? I have a 44 ft class A DP with 8 golf cart batteries so should be able use the inverter to supply 120 volt overnight. Looks like 400 sq ft floor area size would be right size.

I see this one that rates high and is at the top of many reviews in the RV publications, etc. I've seen lately:

LEVOIT Air Purifier -- through Amazon

However, we have pretty much deciided to order these (it's for our house and not RV, however) as you get two for about the same price and they are just as highly rated in the Amazon reviews ...there's currently a 20% off coupon being offered:

We use Santa Fe products (Dehumidifiers and Air Purifiers) in our home and MotorCoach. I purchase all of them through Sylvane.com. Sylvane has specific air purifiers for smoke of several brand names. It shows they are offering a 10% off discount by using code SMOKE10.

Never really thought about running one in the motorhome. It seems that the last few summers, we ran into wildfires in different areas. Those two linked have pretty high ratings.

Can anyone speak to how much noise they make, are they pretty quiet for an RV. I see the first one has a nighttime quiet mode.

It's interesting that you mentioned noise levels as that was important to us too. The ones we're about to order (Druiap) actually have lower noise levels than the more expensive Levoit one in the first link ...20 dB opposed to 24 dB. We looked through the reviews and many commented on how quiet the Druiap pair are. I'm not sure if the fan can be used on the lower speed without the night light being on or not --we'll have to see when we get them.

Living in California, we've had to get a few air purifiers to deal with the fire seasons. We like these a lot. I have even brought them into the RV on some trips. They use very little power, are very quiet on the low and medium settings, and the replacement filters are reasonably priced.

Our kid uses this one and bought us one for the house. Wow, the amount of dust in the house has about dropped to zero even running that thing on its lowest fan speed. I vacuum the filter once a week. We'll be taking it with us on the next motorhome trip to try and cut the dust inside down. I think it'l over-achieve.

OP here, thanx to everyone for the feedback, yesterday I was at an outlet/overstock store and found a Levoit model LV-H132 for $62.85. Nice small footprint, 8" width by 12" tall cylinder, built in nightlite (can be switched off), and only draws 28 watts, and has 3 fan speeds. Says cleans up to 198 sq foot area, sounds about right for a RV and very compact.
