Dust problem in Triple E Empress

I have a 2003 Empress. I get a lot of dust ingress into the motorhome when travelling on gravel roads. It seems to be coming in under the right hand side of the closet at the rear of the motorhome. There is a void under the lowest cupboard that appears to be the worst. The dust also collects between the bed and closet. The aluminium covered insulation around the engine bay had some breaks and tears in it that I did my best to tape up.

Can you please advise as to the best solution to address the dust issue? I love the motorhome, but my wife says if I can't fix it soon it has to go.

Dust can be difficult to deal with. The first step is to pressurize the inside when under way. Do this by opening the air intake on the dash heating system-not recirculate. Drive with all windows closed and ensure the bathroom roof vent is securely closed as well as any other roof vents that tend to "suck" the air out of the coach.

Thanks, I have heard that from someone else and will try it. We did make sure the windows and all vents were completely closed, but I havent yet tried creating a positive pressure inside with the heater/AC.
