Dust intrusion on super dusty roads?

Recommended Posts

Can an Ollie owner comment? Do you find any significant dust leakage into the cabin or under floor compartments, or the outside ones? The forest roads in nearby Idaho can get incredibly dusty, with a very fine powder everywhere..... Not nearly as horrible as this bull dust, but pretty bad late in the season when it is tinder dry and there has been a whole Summer's worth of traffic grinding down the gravel.

Any tricks or tips?

 

I started a thread here that might be of interest, but not knowing how big an issue dust entry is, that may be moot.

Thanks for any comments.

So, by the lack of comments, my guess is that either nobody tows in thick dust, or the Ollie is reasonably well sealed.

 

Any opinions?

The Oliver is well-sealed. We travel dusty forest roads fairly often and haven't had intrusion into the Oliver. We're taking ours to Alaska this summer, so it should really be put to the test.
