Not sure about the stability of sapele, but I bet teak would not change much. No warp, anyway, and not much change in dimension at all. Think about using teak! or polywood, if you can find it.

I’d be just as worried about the road trip out there. Can you keep it inside your vehicle? (I have this picture of granny from the Beverly Hillbillies sitting in the chair, on your car top!).

I bet if your finish is well cured before you leave, you will have little trouble. Probably better going the direction you are- dampish to dryish- the other way I’d worry more.
