We all do our best to keep damp at bay in our vans. A good solution for this is usually a dehumidifier. Whereas most models use a compressor to dry damp air, the X-Dry uses a desiccant wheel. This makes it lighter and also quieter to use.

Overview

We all do our best to keep damp at bay in our vans. A good solution for this is usually a dehumidifier. Whereas most models use a compressor to dry damp air, the X-Dry uses a desiccant wheel. This makes it lighter and also quieter to use.

The unit weighs less than 8kg and has a 3.5-litre tank. It can collect up to 10 litres of water a day and can be continuously drained via an attached hose. The auto restart is a great function, especially if the van is in storage. It also kicks out air 10-12 degrees warmer than what goes in – ideal for keeping the space dry and warm.
