We kept the bath vent open in the 23B all the time and never had that problem. We also seldom ran the furnace, using a space heater instead. We've been good down to abt 25deg with no probs. We use a down comforter in cool weather and like it chilly at night.

We had moisture problems on the inside of the windows in our van conversion and class-B... until we opened a window/ceiling vent a bit. Doing that didn't drop the temp a noticeable amount, but did remove excess moisture in the air and ended the dripping windows.

We open the bath vent as well, and use a space heater too. The space heater will almost run us out if we set it too high.

We had that issue with our hybrid too, but the bigger problem was water dripping on us from the canvas top while we slept. This only happened in cold weather when we were running the heater. It's condensation from the humid interior on the cold surfaces. As others mentioned venting should help a lot.

Oh yes, we've been rained on in the middle of the night from the condensation on the tent ends. It's a real unexpected refresher!

In the morning after a cold night and there is a substantial amount of condensation on the tent end, I like to hide onder the covers and tap the tent so my wife gets rained on. Then I escape through the screen and run for my life.

We didn't notice any moisture in our 2012 X17Z. It had mattresses with a plastic coating on the bottom. However, our new 2015 X23B has Denver mattresses and we then noticed it. I am not sure why.

Our solution was to add a thin air mattress under the regular mattress. When we are off the bed, the air mattress pushing up and allows some air flow underneath, thereby allowing for the bed end to dry. We'll see how it goes this fall.

The condensation is probably from water vapor coming off our bodies during the night. It travels through the mattress and forms drops on the cold surface of the bunk. I would guess that the condensation is there with either mattress, but with the plastic bottom mattress it gets trapped inside the mattress so we don't see it.
