When I owed a 19ft we ran the max/Fan day and night it keeps the moisture out of the trailer. Our current 21ft we run the fan day and night no moisture problem. We ran the fan when showering in the Escape.

We've never had a problem with condensation. We don't camp in the winter, though. Had some condensation in our 17ft. Escape when we camped in late October one year. I think that the extra insulation package may help prevent some of the moisture. We have never noticed dampness of our bedding or under the mattress. I think ventilation helps.

We also live in the Pacific Northwest, so we don't have extreme temperatures.

Another similar product that comes in a 6' X 6'-6" piece is DryMesh. It is a bit thinner than the product Jim mentioned - 1/2" compared to 3/4". I have no way to compare them, but the DryMesh works well for me.

I ordered 14 feet myself do to your previous post about the stuff. Now I just have to wait for the trailer to be finished!

I believe Escape is now cutting the mattress smaller so that it does not touch the walls, you may only need about 10 feet if you are not doing the walls. Verify this before making any changes.

Cheap foam pool noddle from the dollar store under the mattress after you wake up. A trick mentioned on a number of other RV forums.

I tried that, except I bought the foam pipe insulation and put around the edges, there was still wetness, however the mattress pad mentioned above installed with some coming up the sides seemed to work better as it allowed the air to circulate vs trapping it.

From my reading, the solid core not hollow core dollar store ones worked best. Firmer for the heavy mattress weight I guess.
