That is normal. So normal, in fact, my reefer has a device that is built in to prevent that. Happens only in high humidity areas.
If the condensate forms on the outside of the door gasket, the door may need to be adjusted to put a wee bit more pressure on the door seal, but is probably the cold from inside making the door frame cool enough to condense some of that fine Florida humidity.

Yes, the newer refrigerators (and usually the double door models only) have a little heating element in the door frame to help prevent this. They usually have a little toggle switch up above the freezer door to turn it on/off. You'd want to turn it off if you were dry camping without electricity.
