Playa dust is very corrosive too. The last two burns I used my super-nice '86 GMC crew-cab duallie - and I wish I hadn't. Everything underneath is now rusty.
It's not gonna self-clean by blowing out as you drive. And if the wrong dust storm hits, your rig will be LOADED with dirt.
If you were gonna carry extra shit in a trailer behind you ( a great idea anyway ) then you could carry your top on it and bolt it on prior to arrival on the playa... that's probably what I'd do, 'cuz I do love ragtops, I've done pretty long interstate road trips in mine top-down the whole way.

That's the sort of wacky thinking that built Burningman.

My rideshare likes to shut all the windows and vents on his trailer by Gerlach.
That's Savannah. She's always hot.
I'm opting for a tightly sealed mini MH, cut, sewn, and sealed on 4 sides down to the ground with extra flaps to burry or put under sandbags. Wish me luck.

Not sure what some of you are doing differently, but despite being there for 8 days, through many dust storms, we barely had any playa dust in the car when we returned. There was a very very light layer of it, more like the inside just hadn't been dusted off in a couple months, which all cleaned up easily and quickly.
