that totally sucks!!! i'd sadly say get what you can out of the trunk, close it and make sure there is no water inside and put a piece of cardboard down and spray it with water for a few min. and see what happens... could be a bad seal

I would also check under the spare tire. There is a rubber drain plug in the bottom of that tire well and if the plug is missing it could cause that kind of condensation as it soaks through from the underside of the liner.

Have you carried anything wet in there that could have saturated the liner, then evaporated, only to recondense inside the trunk? It will create it's own little environment in there....moisture evaporates, but gets stopped by the trunk lid and then is forced to recondense, etc when the temps go back down....it's a lovely cycle. Most likely though, you have a leak somewhere. Either it is coming from your rear window seal or your trunk seal....also keep in mind that there is some seam sealer used and that could be leaking as well if it has gotten a pin hole in it.....I think you may have to remove everything and lay down the cardboard and take it to the car wash and blast the area with water and see if you can get it to drip.....then repair as necessary. Keep in mind that it could just be residual moisture from all the rain you said you've been getting......living in Illinois I had a chevy cobalt as a work vehicle that I bought brand new that would freeze water on the inside of the windshield during winter. I obviously had no water in there, but moisture can find it's way in if it really wants to....our cars are by no means moisture proof, just moisture resistant....

Isn't there a vent in the wheel well area that lets air out when you slam the trunk shut? If that was sealed up you could get condensation in there like that over temperature changes.

I had forgotten about that...yes there is a vent and I can't remember, but I think it's on the passenger side. I don't remember being able to see it very well from inside the trunk though...I only ever saw it when I removed my bumper cover. 5 years of gravel roads and mine was pretty gummed up. I didn't really clean it much I just hit it with my hand and most of the gunked up dirt fell out in clumps. Not sure if it can be checked from inside the trunk though, but look into that too as a possible issue.
