I remember a while back someone had a small dehumidifier they used in their trailer but I cant find it or where they purchased it...
I found this one so wondering if anyone has used this type? I usually use those little black containers with the dri-eze stuff or what ever its called...

We use the Eva-Dry 500 in our 16' Casita (it's a little bigger than the one in your photo) and are really happy with it. When the contents become pink you need to remove it from your trailer and plug it in overnight to dry the crystals out. I found it HERE on Amazon. Our local True Value hardware store also carries them.

Eventually the dehumidifier dehumidifies the air outside the rv, unless your rv is completely leak free (for air).
Ventilation is the right way to dehumidify your rv.

Probably very true in a dryer climate, but trying to keep moisture at bay is a problem in the Pacific NorthWET. It's pretty difficult to keep vents/windows open when it's raining almost constantly November-March unless the trailer is either under cover or covered. I live in the east country area of Portland and the rain comes down sideways because of the wind.

"The rainfall averages 42.7 inches (1,080 mm) per year in downtown Portland. Portland averages 155 days with measurable precipitation a year. "

I think there's a mistake... 155 days? Some years it seems like 255 days <_<
