Gravel Roads and Dust Aspen Trail

Has anyone experienced towing the Aspen Trail 2810BH on gravel roads with a lot dust.
We`re purchasing our first (new to us)Travel trailer and don`t know what to expect with regards to dust.
Starting family vacation soon and there's approx 300 kms of gravel roads. I don't want to reach my destination and have my camper full of dust.
Is there prep work or modifications to make sure this doesn't happen, or just close all the doors and windows and shes good to go ?
Appreciate any advice or past experience.

Our experience with both our first and this TT is that closing the roof vents and windows makes a pretty good seal. Last year I took ours about 5,000 miles (~8,000 km) across the US and didn't experience a dust issue including when I went through an area range fire. They're made to seal pretty well. Of course, your mileage may vary based upon age and condition of the seals but I hope that you'll be pleased.
