Dust in the bed
« on: February 15, 2017, 02:07:45 PM »
Hi Everyone
My husband and I recently purchased a 1998 Track Trailer Eagle. We love it so far, although we've only had it out for a short trip. We went along some pretty dusty tracks though and found the tent section to be a little lacking in dust proofing. The rear has a piece of pvc material along a sail track that flips over the folded down tent prior to putting the cover over. This stops dust getting up through the back. We found we still got a lot of dust up the sides too though, particularly on the side the tent folds open to, where it can get straight into the bedding area. We've had several ideas on how we can minimize this, but would love to hear if anyone else had the same issue and how you've made it work.

Don't know if it is the best idea, but we use a cheap fitted bed sheet over the tent and down the top of the metal sides before fitting the cover. It works surprisingly well at keeping the tent clean. For Cape York type dust, some long foam rubber strips also get stuffed up under the cover helps.
Also, when really dusty, sticky tape over the door locks, especially the rear. And a can of silicon spray (to keep the locks working) so you don't get locked out of your own vehicle in the middle of nowhere when they clog up....
