Do you know where your airstream has been. I have a 68 and I have no idea where it's been over the years. I'm picking up a 59 May 1 and I will proceed as if it is contaminated.
We've finally been getting some spring weather here in New England and a chance to get out into our new-to-us trailer for cleaning. The P.O. took this trailer all around the country and it's picked up a bit of dust from here and there. I've been wondering about allergies and best ways to clean so I went searching and found this old thread. There's some good (and important) information here so I'm bumping it back up for spring cleaning time.

Have fun spring cleaning!!

Deer mice are the most probable carriers of hantavirus

"The deer mouse is about six inches long to the tip of its tail. It is yellowish brown to grayish white on top, has a white belly and feet, large ears, and a furry tail that is white on the underside."

Most of what you will find is the standard brown house mouse which is a much less likely carrier. It has a scaly tail and is brown underneath.

But it is always a good idea to take appropriate precautions!
