Managing condensation at night?

Newbies looking for a way to manage condensation at night. No issues during the day, but we wake up to condensation on the inside of the windows in the morning. It's chilly here at night, so we generally close everything up. Is that our issue?
Just had our third night in the A122, and we're loving it!!! Thanks everyone for answering all of our crazy questions...😳

Ventilation is the answer to condensation in small campers. Each of us exhales a noticeable amount of water over night and two people in our low volume campers can make them quite moist.

So you need to get the warm moist air out of the trailer. Mostly it involves opening the windows or the fan cover slightly to get some enough airflow and somewhat reduce the temperature difference between the inside and outside.

You're right, by closing everything up at night you're trapping moisture inside. Cracking open a roof vent or window will help.

The suggestions you've gotten are correct. If you find you need even more of an adjustment, you might look into some of the small dehumidifiers on the market. We have had great results with the Eva-Dry dehumidifier. They have a very small table model that takes a load of water out of the air, and it's very quiet. We find it is most effective when located near the bed at night. Eva-dry Electric Petite Dehumidifier: Health & Personal Care
