I have tried to keep a vacuum in our trailer thinking that it would help preserve the interior, but every time I open the door it just equalizes with the outside air pressure.

Extra batteries are now available for these and the ones w/o the extension (DC31???)


Got my extra battery about 2 months ago.

Everything about Dyson is pricey, but I love these. Tons of suction.

We have the full size Dyson pet model as we have carpet in most of the trailer, and vinyl in galley and bath. It is lighter and more compact than the former sweeper, plus all of the attachments store on the handle.

On a 454 you should have 16-20". That seems to be the best.

Dyson "Digital Slim"

Check it out here - I LOVE IT!!!

Battery is no issue - use it to vacuum 30' Airstream twice with it set to max power running the little spinning broom - plenty juice....

Scott 24,
We found our folding broom at an RV show and we also see them at Campong World. The one we use is Camco, has one knuckle at the end of the broom head and the handle telescopes with twist and lock to tighten. We've used this one over three years, holding up just fine (indoor use only).

DC35 is the best vacuum for an Airstream!

A Few words: DC35 = Awesome! Even on max power you will never run out of battery. Excellent attachments, stores extremely compact. FUN TO VACUUM! It will suck the lead from a pencil.

Plus it is $100 off at Bi-Mart right now, got ours for $200 even! Bi-Mart did this last year too, dropped Dyson prices right before Christmas.

I am fulltiming and immediately saw the need for a good compact vacuum. I have the vacuum that originally came with my Airstream but it is not super powerful so it has taken residence in the garage. I installed a Dirt Devil central vacuum system and it ranks up near the top of the list of best money spent on my Airstream. It is strong and quiet thanks to me mounting the main unit in the large rear outside compartment. I use the roller brush upholstery attachment to vacuum the floors and furniture and cold not be happier with it. Best part is the hose and attachments store neatly and easily.

I use a hand held Dirt Devil...tucks away and fits right in the bathroom cabinet area for storage. Easy to clean, however I have a large compressor in the back of my truck, and use a blower fitting to blow out the filter when I am finished. I also keep a peak 03 air purifier handy and will plug it it while we are gone from the house for an hour or so.
