Jim, I haven't installed hyper mesh yet, but will have it in the trailer by the time we leave for the SouthWest in late January. We did have the vent open an inch or two, and we had the pelonnis furnace going. But when the humidity is 100% (as I assume it is when the fog is so thick you can't see the 40 ft fifth wheel in the next site), my guess is that you are going to get some condensation no matter what.
There are other products besides Hyper Mesh. I have been looking for a place to buy dri dek tiles for the shower floor, and while reading about that I came across stories of sailors who put dri dek under their cushions and mattresses. Apparently the big thing is to have some air space between the surface of the mattress/cushion and what ever the cold surface is. I will probably use hyper mesh, but I did think about just buying enough dri-dek to lay under the mattress.
I also thought about insulating the underside of the mattress platform. I don't know if that would make any difference at all, if seems like it might keep the platform warmer and hence reduce some of the condensation.
