If you're collecting condensate from a clean surface the water is perfectly distilled, which does make it taste a bit funny though as even RO water has quite a bit of minerals and other junk in it.

I'd quite like to build a small flash evaporator to use waste heat from the engine/generator or some type of solar still. With a decent vacuum you could make water at about 65º and with a bit of refinement get quite a bit out of it.
