Just the wife and I. We leave the u shape table down all the time. We have a queen size air mattress and good 4" foam topper. It is as comfortable as our bed at home. The trailer is easy to heat with one ceramic heater. If we are going to be somewhere for a while we may put the other end out for storage.

Enjoy your new trailer.

if you've got condensation, then you must not have any vents/windows opened a little.
air movement is the best fix for this and sealing up a trailer, without allowing for air movement, is the quickest way to get condensation.

I was kinda hoping that the little oscillating heater on the floor would take care of that. But, it didn't. I watched a "Youtube" video on this and the guy says to leave the ceiling exhaust fan on all the time, except when using the toilet. I don't like leaving the fan on almost 100% of the time. But, I may try it next time out. I already purchased one of those covers that goes over the ceiling fan opening. This will allow me to leave that open in all kinds of weather.

If were camping in the cooler seasons and are packing up the next morning, there might still be some condensation on the bunk end ceiling material in the morning. I'll take an old bath towel and wipe it down an hour or so before closing up. About the coldest we have camped here in Northern Ohio it has gotten down to the low 20's.

I remember a few years back while at Mohican State park in Northern Ohio in Oct. where in the open field sites it was in the upper teens. I was kind of concerned because there were many tent campers in that area. I have a hand held digital thermometer that I'll check night time lows. It usually 5-10 degrees different from a site with tree cover to the open field sites.

As mentioned before, we are in the market for a new RV. Right now it is a new hybrid, but since we saw the 12' model we wanted in mid-summer till now they made a number of changes even though it is the same model year. Changes like:

~ Instead of an all white exterior fiberglass, now they are painted a light gray

~ Instead of the normal RV windows, they went to a frameless design. It's good looking, but they only open up or should I say crank-out 2". The windows we have now open up or chank out 6-8" or we have two widows that are sliders. This gives you a lot of fresh air. Were worried with only a 2" gap, we will not get enough air flow.

~ Instead of 3 choices of cloth fabrics, Now you have 2 fake leather fabrics and one cloth. There really pushing the fake leather ones...
