Summer storage

We just bought our first Airstream and need to store it where there is no electric service. It gets very hot and humid down on the Gulf Coast in the summer. What should we do to keep our new baby fresh between trips?

I use damp rid while our Bambi is in storage and it works great. Home Depot had them on clearance this weekend.

Also I take all the bedding and towels out and when we go camping everything is clean and fresh. Lees material to soak up the humidity as well.

When you use damp rid do you seal the trailer up tight or leave a vent cracked?

She's all closed up. I was in an open air spot now I'm in a covered spot but will still keep her closed up. I think it works well.

Do you go someplace on trips where it's not hot and humid? If so, how about storing it there instead?
