Hi there,
We had the same problem in 2001 with our GU, same place too with the off-road camper trailer in tow, would like to hear how to solve re the back doors, We did not have the internal dust problem with the trailer?? After a while I would run the fan flat out with all windows closed but that had minimal affect. We did notice when back at home (WALLACIA) that after removing the dust with a wash the door movement of both doors had rubbed the paint off around the body on a thin line corresponding to the rubber seal.

Who has got all the answers??
Get out there and use it.
Life is too short not to.
All the best...
Donald

Gosh it's easy to wind you blokes up! Used to own a Nissan, probably will again, particularly if they bring out a 4.2l version of the 3.0 turbo (which is a multiplatform unit shoe-horned into the GU - according to the Nissan tech rep).Russell S

nissan have a kit to upgrade GU1 or GU2 rear door seals to GU3 specs.

whinge enuf and you get them for free... if not around $180 ish

this gives you seals on the doors and body and you end up with rubber on rubber, not rubber on paint
