Decided to purchase the thermal liner. Have been camping in high 20's and the mopping up of condensation is a morning thing. Can anyone suggest their favorite material to absorb the water... I tried shammy material... paper towels... regular towels etc ... Is there a whammo product they dries fast and absorbs a lot rather than smearing it around.

Rob we use a towel that was given to us from our Spanish friends.

I think it says on the towel,   "nabaiji". They are 80% polyester and 20%  polyamide.

They came from a sports store in Barcelona called Decathlon.

It's like the REI stores here.

There are stores in the US but I couldn't find any on the east coast,BUT they are on line.

Search Decathlon.

The towels we have are 26"x35"micro fiber.about $7.

They absorb water great we use them as shower towels.

 

Something like that might work to wipe up the condensation.

Thanks Frank... I found exactly what you mentioned and I will get some. The chami-cloth just doesn't do it. Amazing how much water we humans lose each night and the dog!

What kind of bedding do you recommend with this kind of condensation? Just purchased a used FWC and will be taking a month long ski trip in it in February.
