musty crawl space

we have a double wide trailer. It has a crawl space and now our house is starting to smell musty/ moldy. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smell.

Ventilate the crawlspace. Add an exhaust fan to draw air through crawlspace vents. MOVE the air under there, and the musty odor should go away.
Good Luck!

Vent'g the crawl space is good, BUT, if you don't insulate the floor with a non condensing insulation you'll freeze your totsies and your pipes could freeze.

You can attach a single layer radiant barrier under the, keeping the pipes inside the insulated area and that will also help winter bills. Use the single ply type that costs about 20 cents a sq ft.
