Condensation in tip out bunk

Hello.
Just had a rainy camping weekend. Temps in the low50's. Had the heat on. A tremendous amount of condensation mostly on the ceiling of the tip out bunk.
Dripped onto us when we were asleep. Anyone have such problems?? Any ideas?

We had 'condensation issues' in our first RV. Increasing the ventilation took care of it both in that and the next RV.

Opening a window or vent slightly seems wrong when you are trying to keep warm, but that allows the very high humidity to escape.

Fairly common issue. Key is to open the roof vent about an 1/2 inch. Also in each bunk open one side window just a bit. I place the zippers in the highest corner then open each zipper 2-3 inches each. The moisture leaves the trailer through the openings instead of condensing on the canvas.

If seams wrong when the heat is on to open a window and vent, but it keeps the htt dry.
