Unhappy Dusty camper

We bought a 2006 2720SD trailmanor and have had it out several times camping. We love it however, we do a lot of boonddocking and this requires driving on gravel or dirt roads. When we set up camp the inside of the trailer is usually very dirty. Sometimes there is even gravel inside the trailer. What can we do to stop this from happening???? The longer the drive on dusty roads, the dirtier the trailer.

Same problem so we plan to clean every time it is opened in prep for next trip. Donít think there is away to keep road grime out of TM

If you look underneath where the shells join, you may see gaps. That's likely where the dust is coming in.

I agree, there always seems to be dust on the counters inside ours, even after we clean it before a trip. I was thinking of maybe cutting some pool noodles or pipe insulation tubes in half and stuffing those up into the shell gaps before traveling down the road.

But that is a heck of a lot of trouble to go through for a camper that originally retailed for 30K....

I don't know an answer to this either. It even gets in the drawers and such. We've taken to storing the silverware in ziploc bags to keep from having to wash them before use!

Still beats a 10 or 15 thousand dollar tent trailer that has at best a potty and an outside shower. And no "walls" I'd never have gotten my wife into a tent trailer. It means a lot to her to have a toilet that isn't in a bathtub.
