For the sake of the trailer I would leave the dehumidifier running and figure a way to run a drain hose outside.

I had to install a dehumidifier to dry out a damp basement, it ran steadily for 2 weeks but once the basement was dry it hardly came on at all. I think your Airstream would be similar. Once it is dry the dehumidifier will seldom come on. Open cupboard doors and leave a fan running to circulate the air.
Agree to a certain extent. Once dry, cool is fine. If wet, warm air more readily accepts evaporation. And warm air holds more moisture.

Air conditioned would be even better but the expense would be fierce. If you are not living in the trailer, try to park it in a shady spot and leave the dehumidifier on.

Living in the trailer park of sense, looking out the window at a tornado of stupidity.

I don't have much shade at all there but do plan in in next 2 years putting a roof over it

If coat would be "fierce" (estimations anyone?) than I would live with hit and dry I suppose

If cost if running at 85 is reasonable for me - then perhaps I would accept it
