Take for example the daily roads majority of us prefer to travel on: unpaved gravel and sand roads. Fun to drive but they have a fundamental flaw - dust.
Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana was our intended destination... the route, navigating via the bush tracks and GPS, was relatively easy to follow but the fine dust that penetrated the vehicle left us in a filthly state.

How do you prepare for those dusty roads when equipping your vehicle in the beautiful dust free world of England or Europe?
Here's a few ideas we used to keep us clean as possible...
- a small broom, kept behind the front seats, for dusting the rear door down, prior to opening and scooping up any internal dust.
- a bottle of water / Detol mix for keeping our hands extra clean
- an integrated shower into the clean water tank for that awesome end of day wash
- a pair of gloves for removing the very dusty rooftop tent cover and opening the tent.
