My car (unfortunately) has spent the last 3 years parked on the street in all kinds of weather and thankfully my boot is bone dry.
If you have moisture in there, most probably there is a leak somewhere.

I’m away next week but, when back home the following week I’m going to speak to a local company about getting it sorted out.
To be fair, although a fiddly job, I can’t see it being that expensive unless, something horrible and rusty rears it’s head......

Same here Mike. I have a small rust spot near B post, but like Naki says we all know what small rust spots really mean
