Every year there you are, guaranteed at least two major dust storms that will hit your car and RV- “Entrance” and “Exodus”. Thousands of vehicles and RVs are driving into the Black Rock City that creates incredible amounts of dust.
With some preparation ahead of time you can prevent hours and hours of cleaning as well as prevent permanent damage to your RV and car. Tips as simple as making sure you keep your RVs windows, doors, and vents closed until you are in camp and have stopped are huge dust savers.
It takes hours to get through the line of vehicles waiting to enter the Black Rock City. You are going to want something to drink and something to eat while waiting. Keep a cooler in your car with these items. This will prevent you and your passengers from entering and exiting your car/truck and tracking in clouds of dust.
