My simple formula for de-playafying the RV interior after the Burn is to hit everything with compressed air, vacuum, and repeat. And repeat again. And one more time. Ditto, again. Encore.

It worked out nicely. Bought a huge tarp and built an enclosed room on side under awning. Ran an air filter inside 24/7. We took our shoes off when entered. Cleanup took 2 days. Removed a/c covers and used air compressor to clean inside and out. Vacuumed several times, wiped down, and washed outside a few times. Was very satisfied. New air filter cost $300, so will put in my old one for the burn.

I recommend traveling as light as possible. I would rent a car, join a theme camp where you can share resources, and enjoy being free of all the equipment.

That's my plan this year... fly in and go light. Last year I did the "bring it all" vehicle thing; over-rated. Deciding what you really need and what you don't brings you closer to the playa. This also means you need to develop a dependable relationship with a camp, which is an entirely new dimension.

The playa will provide.

All good suggestions, but for your first year, suggest not bringing the RV if you are in a camp. RV's are a retreat zone for anyone even remotely connected in dust storms. And of course they will be covered with dust.

If you are soloing or camping just with the RV occupants feel free to ignore.

Also note that leaving is often dusty, sometime arriving and can take from an hour to 4+, during which the engine cooling system is sucking dust.

$300 for an air filter? I'm in the wrong business! Glad everything worked out! I imagine with that kind of investment, I'd be a little more cautious as well!
