You could have a roof leak that is running down the walls and getting your carpets wet. You could also have a moisture condensation problem in the walls.

Moisture seeps up through the bottom of the trailer. It also comes from the roof. Use a ground cover to prevent moisture.

It prevents moist air from accumulating. Seal any holes in the belly board. Seal any holes or cracks.

Water leaks are tricky to identify. Where they manifest isn't necessarily anywhere close to where they start. If you're sure it is not coming from the roof, I would get a plumber out to check it out as soon as you can. If you have just moved in to this home, it could be an error during the set up. Perhaps the ridge cap is not pulled together tightly? I would contact the dealer who you purchased the house from as they can remedy any problems with the setup. Best of luck.
