We picked ours up in August of last year and spent 9 or 10 days coming home and by the time we got home it was pretty good. certianly the first few days were a bit stinky but just use the max fan and open windows to air it out.

When you order your new mattress, order it a little smaller than the factory queen sized. It will allow air to circulate around it and eliminate any wetness in the winter against the exterior rear wall. Allow 6" around the entire exterior bed perimeter and you will have no problems.

We picked up our trailer in December and I would say it is still offgassing. This was a concern to me since I have two children, and so I've aired it out with every bit of nice weather we've had. In March and April, I would even put a heater in it and get the temperature up, then open it up to let the fumes out. (Wanted it to offgas before we went on vacation for 10 days.)

Now, with the windows and fans open I don't smell anything, but when it's been closed up, even overnight, I still smell fumes. I know it'll fade eventually, and I do admit to having an extra sensitive nose!

Another advantage of a reduced size mattress is it would make it a lot easier to install the mattress pad and fitted bottom sheet when making up the bed. I find it a small struggle to make the bed in an already tight working area with open access to only one side of the bed. The extra clearance would help a lot with this. Our 15A has a fixed queen width mattress, basically the same mattress as in the 19.

Our 15 is still giving off fumes picked up on April 1. I think most is the fiberglass. It is definitely stronger than our last trailer. I open all of the cupboards and doors and the shower door. I too have a sensitive nose. Unlike some I'm glad we didn't go into a long trip after we picked it up and it has had time to air out. I think I would have been ill had we had to travel for a week or more after taking possession. Others haven'tentioned this so I guess I am just sensitive to the smells.

I'm looking for an excuse to get a smaller mattress. For both bed making and bed wetting!!

You don't need a smaller mattress Jim. What you need is something like this: Depend®

Oh great guys just something else to consider as we look for our "retirement home" trailer. I had never considered outgassing. Jim do you think that could be a potential problem with an Escape?

When you hit retirement, the issue isn't that the trailer is outgassing, it's you.
