Eggy-Sue never really had any fiberglass outgassing or much of a "New Trailer" smell, of course there was the smell of fresh cabinetry and fabrics and such, but it was never strong or unpleasant.
She is a Deluxe with an Oak interior though, that may make a difference.
Of course some folks are more sensitive to smells than others.
I worked in a refinery for 35years, and it only seemed to smell when I came back from vacation!

Our EggCamper is over two years old and still has some new odor when it's been closed for a while. It quickly airs out and we never notice it while using it.

hmm as i just ordered a new scamp this is something to consider i guess.

think when i get it home,,, i will do my "camp in" ritual.
where i set everything up in my yard and camp for the weekend to test everything out. of course any good camper has to be broken in properly with a fresh pot of coffee, BACON and eggs (is it ok to cook eggs in a egg camper?).

after that it should be well seasoned to smell like BACON and i shouldn't be able to smell the fiberglass any more.

did i meantion the BACON makes everything taste better? even BACON?

Congrats on the new camper!

Bacon is the one thing we don't cook in the camper. It seems to have a unique property of coating everything. The "fur" wall covering is our main reason. It's like a sponge blanket asking for some funk.

I am not sure what the odor is. We have had new stick-built and I had trouble with the out gassing of the carpet and cupboard materials which burned my eyes, made me dizzy and gave me a headache. It seems that it "cooks" out more when the temps are high. I was actually thinking about this last night, how "new" and I often don't get along but it has saved me a lot of money over the years. I air out pillows, mattresses, etc. before using them. I have very few headaches this way. We had a mobile home, brand new and we had a vent system but when it got cold and we pulled them shut, that is when the problems started so the vent will most likely solve the problem. Personally if I get a new one, I would close it up and put it in the hot sun, let it cook and then air it out again and again. I can be over the top when it comes to good health.
