There is a potential problem with camper trailers that can actually ruin your camper or caravan; condensation and moisture. We can tell you a couple of products that will help you nip it in the bud and make sure that you don’t open your camper trailer to a mouldy tent.
This product is a moisture absorber bucket. This is great for placing in your camper, anywhere will do, and it will suck all the moisture out of the air while your camper is packed up. This is exceptionally good when you’ve packed your camper up on a humid day. If you’ve packed up and it’s 90% relative humidity on a hot day, when your camper is sitting at home all packed up and the temperature cools, a lot of the moisture in that air is going to turn into condensation. With this little guy, it’ll all be inside the bucket.
One source of condensation that people rarely give any thought to, believe or not, is underneath your mattress. We’ve got a couple of warm bodies lying on the mattress overnight, we’ve got cold air underneath, what will happen is you’ll get a dew point created underneath the mattress between the board. How do we rectify that? Very easy, moisture-absorbing satchels.

Picture this: we’ve been on an offroad adventure, we’re up in the tropics, and it’s time to pack up our camper trailer and go home. By placing these inside the camper, what you’ll prevent is all that warm moist air inside the camper becoming cold when you get home and turning into condensation, which then can cause the canvas tent to go mouldy. Doing this is a great insurance policy. The further north you are, the more you want to consider buying extra of these and packing in the camper.
Escape with confidence on your next outdoor adventure in your camper trailer with this handy tip that could save you thousands in a tent replacement.
