what is a good dehumidifier?

As with the rest of the country, we've received a year's worth of rain in one month so our new little Salem Cruiser 194bh (20 ft.) has been camped in the backyard for awhile. We have had rain, high humidity and zero sun for 5 weeks and I'm worried about the trailer. We have a large portable dehumidifier in the house that works wonders, do you guys use perhaps smaller units in your trailers even when you're not using them?

Not just during a monsoon season like this, but I would think it would make life more comfortable during humid weather at the lakes too.

Pure newbie here looking for wisdom and experience
thanks, Kathy

All who wander are not lost, most times we just forgot the map.

Kathy have you tried these?
I used to use two of these when I lived in a high humid climate.
They are great when you leave your rig but you have to check them on occasion.

I have used an Eva-dry for years. Really does a good job. I over kill everything and use the large one. We use it when we camp. Helps the ac keep the trailer cool.

We bought a small Hisense unit at Lowe's. Found it worked well. Needed to be emptied each day.
