Hose can be used with tool to vacuum around toilet, ect.
Realy does pick up and cleans well

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.
We use the EL 1022A from Costco (Costco - Electrolux Ergorapido Ultra+ Cordless 2-in1 Stick and Hand Vac=)

Hehe, yeah, I suppose so, Terry.

Also for some reason, I enjoy watching the Roomba work it's way around the TT, getting into a lot of the nooks and crannies I probably wouldn't bother with.

We are suckin' up the dirt with a $1200 Meile canister vac. 4 bags for a mere $24... Gotta keep the 3 dogs worth of hair under control. Talk about overkill!

Is this vacuum a little over the top?

Would you believe....

Thanks for all the input... Decided to go with the Dewalt Cordless 1/2 gallon vacuum after it was all said and done. Fit the "dustbuster" size requirement with a flex hose capability and still has the vesitility of wet/dry shop vac strength... Plus I've got a heap of these battery packs from my hand tool collection. Here she is, freshly shipped from an ebay seller!

Hi there! I swear by my Dyson DC31 hand vacuum. It comes apart, stores easily and works great -- it picks up everything! I write a small blurb about it on our website: One young couple's Airstream International CCD travel trailer RV adventure | Weaselmouth. Ive tried several -- Dirt Devil canister, and the Dirt Devil Kurve, but nothing compares to the Dyson. It'll cost you, but in my opinion, its worth it.

We have a little bagless Eureka Four-Way, about $25, which works well and easy fits in the closet. It doesn't have much capacity and requires frequent filter cleans. It picks up most stuff, even beach sand and is convenient to use. We also have a broom and dustpan which is used for most of the cleaning jobs. We have no carpet in our trailer and when we are "in" at home, we'll use our Rainbow to give it a thorough cleaning.

I thought we'd just whistle into a service station and blow it out with the air hose.

After using a hand held Dirt Devil which was quite awkward to use, we switched to a Hoover Porta Power Lightweight. Since we have a Bambi, it rides in a bin in our truck. I have watched the professional cleaning services use these in homes and offices and thought they were on to something. It is easy on the back, has powerful suction and packs up efficiently to a small size. It is easy on the back because of its light weight. I am very satisfied. Cleans rugs well too.

Battery operated handheld. Works great on trips and when we get home we use the household vac for extra deep cleanup.

Small canister vac similar to this one. We don't want to take up too much storage room. We rely heavily on the old broom and dustpan.
