Tips to Controlling Condensation

by Airstream, Inc.

Follow these tips to control the amount of condensation inside your Airstream Travel Trailer. 

Allow excess moisture to escape to the outside when:

• Bathing, washing dishes, hair drying, etc

• Laundering, and using appliances and non-vented gas burners

• Cooking (always use the stove vent hood) Avoid dead air spaces by: • Using a fan to keep air circulating.

• Leaving closet and cabinet doors partially open. To help alleviate cold weather condensation:

• Keep the temperature as reasonably cool during cold weather as possible.

• Allow your trailer to breathe; do not make it airtight.

• Allow some warm air to be removed and some cool outside air in.

• Do not allow the furnace to recycle humid interior air, and provide reasonable ventilation.


In hot weather, starting the air conditioner early will help remove excess humidity from the air while lowering temperatures.


Note - Your trailer is not designed, nor intended, for permanent housing. Use of this product for long-term or permanent occupancy may lead to premature deterioration of structure, interior finishes, fabrics, carpeting, and drapes. Damage or deterioration due to long-term occupancy may not be considered normal, and may, under the terms of the warranty, constitute misuse, abuse, or neglect, and may therefore reduce the warranty protection.
