Winter Condensation

I've recently upgraded from a 1972 25ft Tradewind Land Yacht to a 25ft 2006 Safari. I full time in my Airstream in Colorado and have noticed condensation on the inside of my Windows now that it has turned cold. I didn't have this problem in my '72 so I assume my '06 is more air tight😁 . I've been reading about the DampRid products. Will the use of these resolve this problem or do I need a dehumidifier?
Thanks in advance for suggestions/remedies.

Crack a top vent and your condensation will disappear.

I use the EcoSeb DD122EA-CLASSIC Desiccant Dehumidifier. It is quiet and has another advantage over regular dehumidifiers - it works in cool temperatures.

Space heater

If you have AC power, get a small space heater like this one:

_-1000363081:Vornado&CAWELAID=&kpid=1000363081&CAGPS PN=pla&k_clickID=go_625716425_34614972190_11113473 5230_pla-258797184670_m_9060473&gclid=Cj0KCQiA6ozhBRC8ARIsA Ih_VC1hqVb2Q_RdShyfWkOOdyC_8FIyvknNHTWte8jN4kPKDMM ho9wL9XgaAiFXEALw_wcB
Basically, it socks air in the back and blows it out the front. It dries it out quite a bit when heating it.
We also live in Colorado, in our Airstream full time. Our only issue... now it’s often TOO dry... so much so that we need a humidifier.
