Yep, the condensation issue continues to be a tough nut to crack when propane is involved.  The diesel and propex options are worth considering for sure, but gotta bring your wallet for those solutions.  My heating needs while camping in the SW are few, but if someone were to develop a small and simple exterior-vented contraption that would link up with my SportCat, I'd be very interested.  In the meantime, I'll just keeping cracking the side window and roof vent.

I've been using Mr. Heater Buddys for 16+ years.  Have used one in 2 different FWC Granby's (1 full camper and 1 shell) and also an older Airstream.  On my 2nd one now.  Never had any issues with it them.  As the video notes, I always have a window and the roof vent cracked to encourage air circulation.  Also, I never sleep with it on.  Have never noticed condensation problems with it.  However, in cold weather, I have woke up to inside condensation on both the FWC and the trailer due to what 2 humans and a one or two large dogs put out.  Also, have used it many times in a large family size camping tent.  I think they are a great tool that is affordable and convenient, as long as one pays attention to how it is being used.
