Condensation is not pleasant when camping. Especially when you're passing through and want to fold the roof tent up again in the morning, it would be great if the roof tent is dry from the inside.
Why does condensation occur?
Condensation often occurs in cold seasons. The reason for this is the temperature difference between the inside of the tent and the outside temperature. The body gives off heat in the roof tent. When this heat now hits the cool roof tent wall, a gaseous substance changes into a liquid aggregate state. It condenses and becomes wet.
How can you avoid condensation?
Unfortunately, you can't completely avoid condensation, but you can at least reduce it by ensuring good ventilation. Even if it is cold, you should leave the windows diagonally a good third open, so that the rising air can be removed to the outside. With the Lazy Tent roof tent you can also open the huge entrance door a good third from the top. This method will remove the condensation well and reduce it to a possible.
