Condensation on Rockwood Roo End Bunks

We live in San Diego CA and purchased a brand new Rockwood Roo 19'. We like it because it can sleep 6 and only planned to use it camping at the state beaches in Southern California. Our issue is condensation in the end bunks. We have read reviews but the ones we have seen dealt with camping in cold weather and the remedies were to keep the windows open a crack or run the fan. We sleep with all the bunk end windows open and also the vents are open, plus normally the door is open (screened). The condensation is pretty thick and if we hit the roof of the bunk end we get a shower. Since we appear to be getting plenty of ventilation what are other options?? Thanks!

You haven't mentioned PUGS yet.
Do you not have the #1 Hybrid mod.
Having camped at California coastal campgrounds for many years, in our hybrid, we wouldn't camp without them.
To eliminate condensation.

Agreed.
The only way to prevent condensation build up is to open the camper up and allow the air to flow, or to use pugs. PopupGizmos

I ended up buying 2 Grabber space blankets and some clamps to use on my Roo.

Worked great the 2 times I have used them so far. They kept the condensation from getting in.

They fit my front bunk perfectly (over the top) and the rear bunk is big, but it works for me. Until I decide to upgrade to Pugs.
