I've always joked about dropping the back door and leaf blower, front to back.
The joys of living in a toy hauler.
I kept the Turbo dust buster with the spinning brush head that I bought to clean the fuzzy ceiling on the Alfa. I carry a broom, sponge mop and a Bona floor duster, works on walls too.

VAC Adaptation

Looking at the small built-in vac system in the Honda mini-vans. They run off 12v and have a hose system attached. It might just fit in the back of a closet or in a void under a cabinet. Saw one in use and it worked very well.

There are SEVERAL "Black and Decker" vacuums.... but the BEST one for an AS is their model FHV1200
It's so good we also use it in the shop and in our home for smaller jobs. It stores easily under the sofa or sink of the AS.

I've also found it at WallyMart.

Hi, we bought the cheapest corded vacuum cleaner that Wal-Mart had. [$14.00] It's small and comes apart, and takes little space. Rechargeable [anything] needs to be plugged in most all of time or they will be weak. One of the most expensive cordless vacuums made only runs for about four minutes. Wipe your feet and leave your shoes at the door.

I have a Dyson. It has the beater bar and there is enough battery power to vacuum the carpets. When boondocking, I plug it in to charge for a few hours during mid-day (when the solar panels are charging) and turn on the inverter.

We have a Rainbow. We bought it when we still had kids at home in the S&B, and Jo Ann won't be without it. Our coach actually came with a built-in one, and that was one of the first things I removed.
