Does such a thing exist? If not, it should. Used to hump the domestic d/h out to the car once in a while in winter to dry it out (this is in the UK).

Now if someone could develop a portable version with long mains lead (and RCD of course!) I'd gladly buy one of a size that could sit in the footwell overnight.

Air-con does that very efficiently.
Of course, if you don't have it fitted...............

There are a few hydrophilic chemical type dehumidifiers around, like THIS ONE (http://www.meaco.com/proddetail.asp?prod=DV300) which will handle a reasonable amount of humidity. Other than that, unless you fancy getting an inverter to supply mains voltage, and then having a big hot gas dehumidifier in the back, what you are doing is the best you can. As stated, the aircon is excellent at dehumidifying but if it isn't fitted to your car then you're stuck!

The best one available on the market is the female type.
Guaranteed to provide sufficiant hot air to de humidify as follows:

1 - Office Gossip - the family car.

2 - Street Gossip - the entire house.

3 - My failings - the entire village for a year and beyond...
