Yes, Donna it is pretty is the much the same thing but it's made out of a hard plastic not rubber. The other thing is these tiles are a lot lighter than the Dri-Deck material and they were at my local building story.

No but I plan on doing a lot of cold weather camping and a ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I found a mesh material like hypervent/dry mesh/dri dek at Home Depot. If the bed covers it, how much ventilation does this stuff actually do? Anybody drill airholes under the bed for air exchange?

When camping in cold weather we open the doors under the bed to minimize condensation on the walls near the bed.

Hypervent is more like a mesh material that allows for horizontal airflow through the fabric, Dry Dek doesn't.

I have a question similar to Jubal's. Has anyone who camps in cold weather AND WHO HAS THE INSULATION PACKAGE had problems with condensation? I am wondering if this problem is limited to folks working with only partially insulated campers.
