Default Condensation on trash can kegerators?

I am slowly making a rolling trash can kegerator as per Beermuchen's inspired design. I was planning on not insulating mine. Then I got to thinking mine will be inside a lot. Does anyone notice a lot of condensation on the uninsulated trash can kegerators?

I don't want condensation dripping on folks' floors.

Problem or no?

It will condense alot.This was an issue for my wife.If you are putting wheels on the bottom with the round frame I would suggest getting a small hot water heater tray or anything similar.Before you remove it from the party clean up can be done with a dishtowel or sponge.

I wrap mine with a heavy canvas tarp that I tuck over the top of the can. Insulates, wicks away excess moisture, and classes up the joint a bit so you can't exactly tell that it's a trash can.
