    Question Conquest mattress condensation

    Hopefully someone has a solution. I have a Conqurer Conquest trailer and used it for the first time this past weekend. When it came time to pack up I took off the mattress and discovered that there was condensation underneath between the mattress and the trailer.
    I experienced the same issue with my previous Howling Moon trailer top tent as well. And before any wise cracks start flying "weak bladder syndrome" is not at fault.

    Anyone got any suggestions, seems body heat and cold air in the trailer do not agree?

    My conquest metal under the mattress is warping a bit when me and the better half gets in bed(yes I know I am fat) making it sound as if Rolf Harris is with us every time I turn around.
    I am planning to put a 8/9mm sheet of plywood under the mattress.
    Maybe this will solve your problem as well?

    We had the same problem with the HM TTT. It seemed to start on a hot and humid trip to Moz and the by the time we noticed it, the condensation had started to mould.

    No problems with the Conqueror but we haven't used it in extreme humidity yet.

    I have been experiencing the same with my Conqueror Commander but only when camping during the winter months. We camped at The Baths in Citrusdal this long weekend and besides having to pack up in the rain, the mattresses of all 3 beds that were used were quite wet at the bottom. I am thinking of using a cheap blanket between that green plastic / nylon cover on the mattress and the metal below. I’m sure the bit of insulation will make a huge difference. I will test it this coming long weekend in Sept at Skurwekop.

    Over here ( Aus ) , you can buy a plastic woven material , especially designed for caravans ,it is about 1cm thick and it allows the mattress to breathe .
    Since putting that on I haven't had a problem .
