Best 12V Dehumidifier

I live in South Florida and park my 27 International at a outside storage facility when not camping or traveling. This facility does not have shore power access but my trailer does have one 125 Watt Solar Panel. With the high humidity in South Florida I want a 12V dehumidifier that I can put on the kitchen counter or in the shower which can drain into my gray water tank. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good 12V Dehumidifier that can run off my Solar Panel.

There are no such items. A dehumidifier is basically a refrigerator with a compressor. The cold coils condense the moisture on them, the air is then run through the warm coils and returned to the room. All this takes a fair amount of power, in the range of 300 to 400 watts or so. Your solar system will not support it, even if there was one made with a 12 volt compressor, which to my knowledge there is not.
