I didn't have much experience with dusty roads, but I will answer the parked question. We had very little problem with air infiltration during some extremely windy camping trips with the fold out seals. We could sometimes feel a small draft at the corner seals in the back bed. If we camped in cold weather, we would stuff that area with pipe insulation cut to length, and use swim noodles in front shell gaps.....those worked great.

Never. I don't think I have ever read about a problem with roof seals leaking on this forum.

I don't get any more dust in the trailer than in the truck towing offroad. For towing on wash board roads I recommend dropping all tire pressure in half. Air them back up for high speed pavement so they don't overheat. I've camped in wind storms on sand dunes where the wind would blow out from under the wheels an the trailer would creak as it sank. No sand inside except what we tracked in on our feet.

Question: are these "fold out weather shields" the white thing on the side in the attached first picture?
Are there supposed to be on the rear also?
Also, as the second photo shows, there aren't any on the rear bed in my 3023, are they supposed to be there?

I'm not too sure you were talking to the best source of info about the TM. All trailers leak dust on dirt roads. The TM keeps out dirt and wind just fine when parked. I find the seals work remarkably well.

Yours looks just like ours. The rear bed doesn't have the "fold down seals". The front bed does. The outer edge of the front bed seals should be folded down between the mattress and the outside edge that contains the mattress & not left out over the mattress. There should be velcro there to attach it to.

I have no idea what a "fold out weather shield" is. This comes under the HUH? category.
