Look for a car retailer who sells car cleaners, polishes, etc to dealers. Can't remember the name but they have something you open up and keep in a vehicle overnight with it being closed up. It removes the cigarette smell. You just then have to clean the walls, etc. good luck!

The nicotine (brown stuff) gets in every crack and crevice and the smell may reappear on damp days. I am sensitive to the smell and I wouldn't buy it. YMMV

Or, just take up smoking... Your sense of smell completely goes away.

A fire recovery place like Servpro could do it for you. I had the same problem with mine. 2 complete scrubdowns with a citrus based cleaner got the gook off down to the zolatone. It was nasty looking stuff in the bucket. Draperies to the cleaners, Out with the carpet. Leave the windows and doors open, weather permitting. You will get it out....a little patience and a lot of scrubbing. Welcome and good luck.

I once forgot about a bone that I was boiling for my dog & left the house for several hours. The entire house was filled with smoke when I got home. Fortunately, the dog was outside! I washed everything that was soft ware & used a product called "Odorban" on my couches & carpet & walls. The house was for sale at the time & I nearly had a breakdown!! The smoke smell was gone & the house sold. I'm sure if you get rid of the soft items & scrub down everything else with some recommended products, you'll get rid of the smell.

Thank you again for all your thoughts. I'm going to go look at it tomorrow and really think about what I can take out, what is going to stay that I will have to clean and if the smell will go away! I really do not like smoke smell, so it does make me nervous, but I think with all the demo/reno we want to do in the inside we should be good... Now we'll see what my extra sensitive husband thinks when we go tomorrow... and I'm bringing a couple other people for even more opinions! Can't be too careful!

I totally agree about cars, you're right, so many soft goods. But I'm thinking since we are painting everything and taking out the soft goods it's different than a car?

The smell gets in the insulation in the walls and in the wood.

It can be cleaned and ozone treated.

All trailers smell, new or used, tobacco or something else to which someone is "sensitive".

Paint is the wrong approach. On an Airstream maybe it wouldn't matter as there are so many of them. On one of the vintage kin trailers -- better in nearly every respect. -- there aren't so many in otherwise original condition that this wouldn't ruin it. Work with what you have to get the best long term result.

I can always smell smoke in a smokers house or a burned and renovated house.
I don't believe you can possibly get the scent out of the insulation and wood.
We just bought a new car because the used 2013 with 14,000 miles that we looked at smelled like cigarettes.
Our first trailer was used. We walked through dozens of smoky trailers during the shopping. We still walk through a bunch of smoky trailers when browsing at RV dealerships. As soon as I walk in, I turn right around and walk out because the slightest exposure will send my sinuses into a daze. I will be sick with a sinus infection for 2 weeks just for one breath of cigarette smoke-
For me, I would absolutely never, ever buy a house, car, or trailer that had been smoked in.
If your sense of smell isn't as keen as mine or you don't have allergy/sinus trouble it may be OK.

Hi, I'm with m.hony; They say a dog can smell one drop of urine in a swimming pool, well I can smell that one cigarette that was smoked in that car/trailer/house ten years ago. I am very sensitive to smoke and I guarantee that you will never get it all out. NEVER. I also was going to mention the insulation in the walls, but m.hony beat me to it. But for you less sensitive people out there, you might get it acceptable for you.

If there was no such thing as Diesels and cigarettes, this World would smell a lot better.

Hi, when looking for a new F-150, my dealer found one in Reno, Nevada. They had to send a driver to pick it up and bring it to Salem, Oregon. I asked them if their driver smoked. I told them that if my truck had a smell from cigarettes, the deal was off. They put my truck on a trailer and hauled it to the dealer.

I'm in Salem too! How funny. Ok now my goal is to not tell you if I got a previously smoked in trailer, fix it up and have you come over and see what you smell.

Hi, I still think the Avions are cool; Let me know when it's ready for the sniff test. I'll be right over.
