Hypervent Helped

OK - I splurged and bought some hypervent to put under the mattress. This past weekend temps dropped down into the 40's at the campground. the only moisture I found was on the flap of material that covers the hinge. Will want to test in colder weather before making a final verdict.

I may be the hyper vent I seem to remember its spendy but mold is a real buzz kill. Can you post a link to the good stuff? TIA

Try Defender.com, they usually have the best price. Also do a Google search for Hypervent and check out the prices, not to many sellers.

We just returned from a week in Montana, temps were down to 22 F a couple of nights, low 30s the others. The hypervent did great - we only had condensation over the hinge, also. Not worried about that, because it never touches the mattress. Rained 4 of the 6 days/nights, and even snowed one! (Happy, happy SNOW dance!)

I folded down a second bed in our X23F, and used it for storage (on top of the mattress). Not even a hint of condensation under that mattress. No body heat, no condensation.

I love camping!!!

I bought a self inflating pad. Not only stopped the condensation, but is more comfortable sleeping on it over the mattress

Which pad did you get Suzie? I definitely need something to make the bunk I sleep in more comfortable as well...

Probably not, MEC (Mountain Equipment CoOp) is a Canadian chain (actually a membership purchasing cooperative). I have seem similar Therm-a-Rest type at places like Gander Mountain, Cabela's, and Dick's Sporting Goods in the US though.

I did find it online at MEC (http://www.mec.ca/en/product/5034-99...e-Sleeping-Pad), but it is $200... I'll check out this other options (Cabela's, Dick's, and Gander Mtn.) as well.

Well, apparently $200 wasn't as outrageous a price as I thought! About the same at Cabela's.... Therm-A-Rest® DreamTime™ Sleeping Pad : Cabela's
