It sounds like you need ventilation.

How does one provide for that ventilation? I am experiencing the same issue. I have a mobile home with a tin roof (non-pitch - built in 1982). The pitch roof was built over the top of the existing roof - my ceilings were leaking, so I took down the ceiling and the insulation. The inside tin beaded up significantly with large droplets of moisture - the top of the 'old'roof was completely dry! This occurred during the Winter months in Central New York. Thank-you for any assistance you can provide.

You will need to build a new roof over the old roof and then vent the resulting chamber with soffit vents and ridge vent I believe.

If ridge an soffit vents are not viable, then gable vents with adequate powered exhaust ventilation should do the trick.
