Are you saying just the roof area has moisture and no condensation on the walls?

  • For any condensation problem it seems the first consideration would be to purchase a dehumidifier as they will collect excess moisture.
  • Dehumidifiers of any size usually start at $100 and go up according to size and other features and can be purchased at Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace hardware as well as online.
  • If your roof is not vented properly then this may be part of your problem.
  • It may also help to "air" out your mobile home a couple of times a day. Opening several windows or doors even 10 or 15 minutes twice a day will help.

  • Plastic film on your windows may help with any condensation in that area. This film is sold at most stores as well as the Dollar Tree.
  • Here is a link that has some other suggestions that you may be able to apply to help stop the condensation.

Keep the air circulating by placing a fan in the window to pull the air from the inside out. Or use a dehumidifier but this is expensive. Line the inside of the roof with bubble wrap. That will prevent the inside air from condensing on the cooler roof. Good luck.
