condensation inside trailer

We just got back from our second trip and the mornings were in the low 30's so naturally we had the heater on. We noticed a considerable amount of condensation on the windows, so much so that it running down the the wall a little. I know this is a natural thing, but was curious as to how everyone dealt with it, other than just wiping it.

Also you need to have a vent open and a window cracked a little for ventilation when using the stove or oven.

I'd add to the list when using the heater as well. We cracked a vent on our last trip and no longer had condensation on the windows and no noticable drop in temperature in the trailer which was my main concern before giving it a try.

Ventilation is key to better heating and cooling.
Try it by cracking a rear window on your car with the heat or A/C going.
Ever see a car with it's windows fogged over going down the road with 2 or more people in it, that is too much condensation not enough ventilation.
