Dirt devil ultra. Very small, but you must get on your hands and knees. Stores under the couch arm. Does a great job. I also have the attachment kit.

I recently bought an Electrolux EL1014A ErgoRapido Bagless Cordless Handheld/Stick Vacuum Cleaner from Target ($100). I wanted a cordless, lightweight vacuum stick for light vacuuming between cleaning (pet hair, etc.) and found this one. I like it alot so far. It is a a 2-in-1. You can use it has a vacuum or pull off the dust buster attachment. It's been great so far. It uses a regular plug though. However, the vacuum stick has 2 power options to save the battery. Looks like Amazon has it too. I haven't used it in the trailer yet, but the other day, as I was using it around the house, I thought it might be handy in the trailer.

I used one of these while I was living in my trailer. For a 25 foot Tradewind, it was just right. It stayed stored upright in its charging stand by the end of the galley counter.

We use one of these as well. Friends of ours told us about it. They use it in their house too. Eventually, their first one died, but they kept the charging base and bought a new one. Now they have a charging base in their home and in their Airstream. It's a great little unit. We got ours at Costco.

I bought the Electrolux when we had a Class-C with carpet and vinyl. I kept it under one of the dining benches. It was better than nothing.
I started using it in the house when we sold our RV. I fell in love with for my hardwood floors.

When we purchased our CCD I didn't have room for it and more importantly I did not want to quit using it my house. So, I purchased a Black and Decker Pivot.
Amazon.com: Black & Decker 18-Volt Pivoting-Nose Cordless Handheld Vacuum: Kitchen & Dining

It takes up less space than the Electrolux and was a great addition to my folding broom and shortened Swifter. It is more powerful than the Electrolux.

Now I have a Westy and I only carry the folding broom. The Swifter has had its missing piece installed and is now full length and can permanently be found in our pool house. The Pivot is in there too but I still use it to clean the Westy between trips.

I have decided to move the Pivot full-time into the Westy and will put in an unused space behind the closet that is accessible from the rear passenger side door. The bonus is that there is an outlet there and the Pivot will be able to charge when we are plugged into a land line or use our generator.

The channels in the floor for sliding the sofa/bed and holding the table leg quickly fill with debris and you can only vacuum them clean. Plus the molding around the counter tops and table make it difficult to get all the crumbs without a vac. I think it will be a nice addition to the tiny Westy.

Hi, I bought this little Eureka from Wal-Mart; It was about $25.00, it runs on 120 volt power, the handle collaspses, it can be used as a handheld or upright, and takes very little space. I keep it in a storage container, under my gaucho, with several other things.

We use one of two uprights we have - an Electrolux or a Dyson.
Whichever one we take, it gets stored either in the clothes closet or the shower...depending on how full the closet is.

We found this little Dyson Dyson DC26 Multi floor Vacuum Cleaner | Dyson.com at Best Buy. It's quite a bit smaller than the DC23, it actually fits under the sink in front of the water heater. It performs much better than the battery units that we tried. We had a handheld Dirt Devil which worked well but too much time on the knees. This little vacuum is so tiny it looks like a toy but the performance is for real.

Cheers, Dan

This is the one I hope to eventually get. Thanks for the review. It seems like a great quality product. I hope they come out with an "Animal" version of this machine. The Animal hand-held seems too awkward for me -- like you said, too much time on the knees.

We use the little Dyson hand held vac - doesn't take up much space and is a great little sucker! Wish thW rechargeable batts would last longer though, we take a spare battery.

We sweep it during/after trips and then vacuum it a couple of times a year. Not knocking what others do at all, but when we sold our SOB we decided to keep things as "lean" as possible in the AS. We were just lugging too much stuff around :-0.

We carry a small Red Devil but rarely use it. Mostly I just sweep and vacuum when we get home.
