Default Dehumidifiers? Recommendations?

What size and type of dehumidifiers are you all using or recommending?

I have a BT Cruiser that needs to be stored/parked outside for two months of rainy cold pacific northwest weather.

Do I want a tube type to drain the water away?
A catch basin type? (If so how many liters am I likely to need?)
Or are the pellets/granules enough for this soaking wet climate?

Or should I just heat it? Vents open? Partially open? Closed tight?

Honest - I looked and couldn't find such a discussion.

Bests to all you all!

The Dri-z-Air types work well for small spaces like cupboards or closets but are not sufficient for any length of time in an area as big as a motorhome in the PNW

I would use one with a drain hose (or modify the tank style to accept a hose), and set it in the bathtub/shower for the winter. We used a tank-type dehumidifier in Wisconsin summers, and it seems like it was always overflowing because I'd forget to empty it, leading to putting all that moisture back in the air.

I bought this dehumidifier for my partially finished basement. The basement is about 150 square meters. The water heater in my basement broke a year ago and the sanitation company used their equipment to dehumidify and repair the damage. Since then the basement has been damp. I bought this dehumidifier for the size and price. I had it for about two weeks and I am happy so far. I am happy with this purchase and will buy this brand again if I need a different dehumidifier for a different room.

We had some issues with mold on the windows in our master bathroom. this small dehumidifier did an excellent job! We leave it on for about 12 hours and switch it off for 12 hours. We've had it for a touch over a month and it's perfect for our needs! Fast shipping, sufficiently small to place out of the way, very quiet, and pulls an honest amount of moisture out of the space.
