    Default Mattress Underlay RTT

    Has anyone ever come across these mattress underlay to assist with condensation between the mattress and roof top tent base. Typically also used in boats. My google search hasnít resulted in any local results.

    I am interested in this, as the mattress on my new camper is in a three-sided aluminium box. I read a blog by a Dutch couple in the tropics who say a woolen blanket works well enough, by wicking the moisture out to the edges. Please report back here if you find the ideal solution.

    I agree with condensation on the aluminium but its far less on the wood that's why in my opinion why the echo RTT is bad seller.

    Condensation can be a huge problem in some canvas tents due to a lack of sufficient ventilation.
    Improving the amount of airflow solves their problem.

    I can image that RTT's with wooden decks could have problems.
    I have a clamshell RTT - no condensation but we do sleep with plenty of air..

    May not help here but all my caravans had 50mm holes drilled in the bedboards. Never had a moisture problem.
    There is no task too simple for some people to complicate !
