Under bed ventilation

With the configuration of the 21, there are two areas under the bed where it would be easy to cut in ventilation grills. With all the talk about moisture, under the mattress etc, would this be a good idea, or would I just be creating other issues? I have the extra insulation package so keeping that area at room temperature shouldn't be a problem.

I installed the moisture barrier under the mattress and decided to let the underbed remain static versus trying to heat the area and adding more of a temperature differential. If later it is an issue, vents can easily be installed. I do plan on insulating the exterior hatch with additional foam. In addition the water heater will help with adding some warmth to the area.

Escape will install vents for you - check with them on availability and price. See post #22 under 19' Jan 8, 2014 and look for the brown circles.

Thanks guys for your input. I ordered Drymesh well over a month ago, got confirmation of the order, but it hasn't arrived and I haven't been able to establish any communication. Soooo, I ordered the Hypervent today. I hadn't thought about the dinette seating for venting, but I guess I should also be concerned about those areas.
Thanks again, Tom
