Question Condensation?

So... In the process of restoring my 74 boler and would love to simply paint the walls, i understand the carpet or pad was because of condensation, hoping someone has done something different

Condensation can be greatly mitigated by keeping the roof vent open a little when sleeping, especially whenever you are using a heater. While I personally prefer the ratfur/reflextix to the ensolite, there are many ensolite lined trailers which look great and provide good comfort with a nice repaint, in fact there are those who prefer it that way.

I just finished pressure washing the whole interior of my '73 Boler so there is a lot of moisture in there at the moment, but even before I began it seemed to have a lot of moisture behind the ensolite. Will this actually dry out at some point?

If you run an A/C or dehumidifier in your closed trailer it will dry out quickly and completely. You should take all cushions curtains and contents out and leave all compartments open.
