The posts about bed condensation seem to largely refer to permanent mattresses. Does this issue arise for anyone with "dinette beds"? Is such condensation only an issue with permanent mattresses? I suppose when dinette cushions are made into a bed, there are gaps between the cushions for air to vent?

Some people add foam toppers to their "dinette beds" (which will be my setup), and I wonder if they experience condensation problems?

Any feedback greatly appreciated! j

I recall the walls being damp around the dinette cushions, I'd recommend using the dry mesh or hyper vent around the sides and underneath.

Condensation

A cold zone against a warm zone with no vapour barrier will cause the moist interior air to condense. This shows up on the perimiter wall around the bed.
By opening the doors, where possible, to the storage space, under the bed during the night, allows the warm interior air to balance the cool air under the bed. Open vent and slightly open windows are critical to reducing interior moisture.
Cheers Mike
