Those pots of crystals from a caravan shop will help. But, even better and cheaper, I say better, because you can replace them easily, get a jam jar and put a fistful of salt in it. Whack a few holes in the lid with a screwdriver, so if it tips the aftermath aint so bad, stick the lid on and place in the van. Don't forget to remove it or stash it so it cant tip if you move. It will work well as a moisture trap. T: *<:)>

Nice tip bigcat and I guess you can take it inside to dry out if needed! Like it a lot!

"Where did the mrs put those spare jam jars?"

Is it just salt or do you combine it with the caravan stuff that was also mentioned?

Most of those dehumidifiers use silica gel in their bags.
Silica gel can be regenerated after "use" in your oven
No need to replace the drying agent (silica gel) at all times

Regenerating or drying silica gel is most common on big industrial dryersT:
Might save you a few quid if you use a dehumidifier;)

We bought a few bags of this of Ebay, like the ones you get in shoe boxes but about 3 times the size, they've really helped
