Waking Up in a Steamy Car/SUV Sleeping Setups

So whenever I sleep in my car (Forester) and leave the windows up I always wake up with the windows fogged. Doesn't matter if I sleep alone or with my climbing partner.
I usually crack them but after a couple of really cold days in Joshua Tree, I'd like to be able to leave them up.
Is there anyway to solve this? I have friends who have vans who don't need to crack the windows (I'm assuming because of the larger volume of a van).

Also, are some great SUV setups for sleeping and storage? Pictures, videos, ideas welcome.

how cold does it get at night? I have a mr buddy heater and crack the windows quite a bit.

You need a vent and a fan, or some other way to get your breath outside of the car

Leave the windows open even just for a little while so that the air circulates inside the car and prevent if from fogging up. Unless it's winter. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
