We bought this small vacuum on our last roadtrip, because of the rocks, leaves and debris from camping in remote locations:

Shark Bagless Hand Vac - Walmart.com

It is probably too small for larger Airstreams, but it works great on the limited floor space in our 19' Bambi. Plus, it sucks up ROCKS!

Larger vacuums were too big to store, and smaller vacuums mostly just scattered debris without picking anything up. This one has the brushes and suction of a full-size vacuum, in a hand-held size. And, the price is right, too!

Re: Homemade "Windex"

Recipe for homemade, all-purpose cleaner (similar to Windex):

1 pint, isopropyl alcohol

1/2 cup, sudsy ammonia

Several drops, Dawn or other dish detergent (just enough to make a few bubbles; exact amount not critical)

Enough water to make 1 gallon, total.

Optional: One or two drops of food color to tint liquid.

We use this for cleaning about everything: Windows, table tops, floors, etc. You can even use it as TV windshield washer fluid, but make sure to OMIT THE AMMONIA, which may harden windshield washer blades and remove auto wax/polish.

Note: Recipe is from Consumers Union Labs and appeared in Consumer Reports Magazine, years ago.

Just read the reviews on the Shark hand vacuum I recommended above, and there are lots of failures reported. Ours is still working great, but you may want to read the reviews before purchasing.

Note: Product reviews appear below description, near the bottom of the page on the link in my previous post.
