Dehumidifier

Our 22 Sport was parked a lot of the late Spring and Summer. When we got in to do some maintenance before our next trip, we discovered a few spots of mildew and a bit of a musty smell. So ... question: What dehumidifiers have you all used that you liked, and just as important, which ones should I avoid?

I just got a 30 pint SPT SD-31E and it works very well. I had another 30 pint dehumidifier that I used in my trailer but I let my Brother borrow it for his Airstream and he kept it so I needed to get a new one.

I used to full time and now spend 4 nights a week in my Airstream for my job. A 30 pt dehumidifier might be on the big side for your 22, but it will keep the moisture down for sure. If you use it for storage I'd leave it in the shower and run a hose to your drain so you don't have to empty the bucket every couple of days. I'd also get a small fan to keep air circulating in the trailer too.

This is the most compact one I could find. Have had it 3 years or so and does a great job.

I see the mfr has discontinued this model, so get them while they are available. Amazon still has some.

Since I store my Airstream where shore power isn't available, I use a different type of dehumidifierů

It's not as effective as the electrical ones, but since it doesn't need to be plugged in, it's better for my purposes. I also put one in my fridge to prevent mold and mildew in between uses.

I also use Damp Rid in a old new to us house. It's working under a sink and a closet. It's refillable, available at Walmart and reasonably priced.

Will need further work to see why moisture or mustiness is happening there but for now it's a fix.
