Excessive Condensation for Sylvania Microwave?

I have a Sylvania microwave in my RV and it fogs up and has lots of condensation when it is used. Their website says it's 'normal' - see here:
http://www.sylvaniaelectronics.ca/sylvania/en/faq /
I've read elsewhere, that this is NOT normal. Perhaps Sylvania just has a unique design that other manufacturers do not have? Does anyone else have a microwave that "fogs up"?

Depends on what you're cooking. Got some examples?

The fogging up happens ALL THE TIME. It doesn't matter what you are cooking in this thing. There is condensation that appears between the inside and outside panels of glass on the door. Basically, that's how the unit is 'designed' to 'vent'. Of course, cooking bacon and frozen dishes is the worst, as there seems to be more 'steam' with this kind of food, but it has happened even when I've just heated up some chili for 30 seconds.
Slyvania's website says this condensation is perfectly 'normal', but I have yet to see any other microwave to do this. These microwaves have been installed in Jayco RVs and even Jayco is swapping some of them out for unhappy customers - even though they are running (according to Sylvania) 'as they should'.
I don't have a problem with the condensation, except that I cannot see my food inside the microwave when the door gets fogged up, and there is excessive water to clean up (and it starts running out of the microwave and down the door when the door is opened).
Any thoughts here on this brand of Microwave and their "normal" constant condensation?
Thanks again, Paula

I think you've pretty much said everything that needs to be said about these machines. The fact that Jayco is dumping them is further evidence that they're designed badly. Who cares what other people think about them? If you hate the thing, that's all that matters.

I don't 'hate' my microwave. Mostly, I question the safety of it (considering I've never heard of this type of condensation before). It's a minor inconvenience to wipe the water up afterwards, but for the amount of time we use the microwave (like, once a month) I am not sure it's worth it to 'fight' the dealer for a replacement. I'd just like to hear from someone that may have some technical experience with microwaves and could offer an informed and independant opinion on its operation.
