Thanks for all the responses. I'm aware of all the points above. As Haggis said, this eliminates most every location in the northeast. I was hoping for a magic bullet I wasn't aware of. One idea I've had when camping in a campground with electricity is to run an electric heater. Anyone tried this?
Have you looked at a Propex heater? Does not “shit where it eats” (exhaust) and could easily be configured to heat a Shiftpod with NONE of the negative side effects. Clean, dry, warm air :)

If that works you might try these reusable silica gel beads, they change color as they absorb moisture and you just bake them in the oven to reactivate them. I use them for some of my moisture-sensitive 3d printing materials. https://amzn.to/2n5WjP2
If dumped into a petroleum filter bag you can throw the entire bag into the oven and not have to deal with loose beads. Or dump them into a nomex sock if you happen to have a odd one laying about to do the same.

Dave how is the moisture and management of moisture in high humidity Florida?
When humidity is at 90%+, you just learn to live with it. Just like in super cold weather, breathing at night is the biggest source of condensation inside.

I think a swamp cooler would be a killer accessory for it in hot, humid weather.


The inside walls of the Shiftpod can be wiped down once you’re done with your trip, I usually set it outside in the sun for an afternoon and do this before I stow it.

I notice on another thread Dave's "Torque Wagon" is sold :eek: I liked that truck a lot......I'm sure you have your reason for selling it.
Great rig. But WAY too large, especially when it's just me. Very limiting on trails especially in the Midwest and back East - like driving a garbage truck. So I sold it, downsized and could not be happier.

totally under stand why you sold it, that was a sweet rig, & one I would love to have for myself.
