      Hi - the mystery "my trunk is always wet inside": two things;

      first - if you park on a slope and open the trunk after it has been
      raining then water will drop straight out of the gutter around the
      trunk opening into the trunk. Poor design - always park facing up
      the hill !

      second - there is a micro climate in the trunk; rather like
      condensation on your house windows when water runs down the windows
      under certain conditions. Because the volume of the trunk is so
      large you can get quite a lot of water from out the atmosphere
      deposited in there.

      My 1955 Rover 90 has really bad seals so good air circulation - and
      has never had any condensation and is always dry.

      Hope this answers the query
