This video is from our trip down the hay river track and Simpson desert 2013 with our jayco swan, Before we left I did a few modification to the van to ensure it’s safe return.
To stop the dust from entering the van I used a safari snorkel ram head on the roof of the van this is connected to 90mm down pipe inside the van, I also used the ARB socks on the ram head and had some filter foam inside the 90mm pipe for added filtration, I also had two dust covers made, one for vents and hot water system and the other for the door, they worked great.
We also took a 12volt Makita air blower with us, we would blow the dust from the seals of the van and truck before opening it, with the ram head you will prevent dust from entering the van, but you still have it on the outside, so buy a blower to take with you, it worked a treat.
Our jayco swan which is notorious for getting dust in had none, but my mates UEV490 with a fan on the side was covered in dust, the fan system may seem good but it’s useless.
I have also towed my expanda to cape York and over the gibb river road, we had the vent on the roof that just pushes up, it was good but nowhere near as good as using the ram head with the socks.
Your trip can be dust free by easily doing this to any camper trailer or caravan before leaving.
I also did a lot of under body protection to this van to prevent damage to water pipes etc, we have simplicity suspension that works a treat, I personally wouldn’t buy a van without it.
On all dirt roads we let our tyres down to between 24-28psi, then once on the Simpson desert we let them down to 15psi, had no problems.
