We prefer this 12V vacuum with 20ft cord.

Horses for courses, as they say. We have a Dyson in our trailer and it works well for us....

@boldadventure: Thanks! I have a B&D cordless and like it a lot. But I vacuum every damn night before rolling out my yoga mat, so I want something I can do the whole floor with from an upright standing position.

@gsmblue: Never heard that before but I like that phrase!

I bought a Swiffer stick vac (kind of a combo pad sweeper & dustbuster), but it's not fun to use, the battery is weak, the suction is poor, and the plastic emits a nasty odor. So I want something better.

So there's someone besides me who actually does serious yoga in an Airstream?

I've been working on developing a couple of routines specifically adapted to the Airstream Interstate, which is an extremely tight space. Eventually I hope to put them on YouTube, an aspiration that certainly has "mid-life crisis" written all over it.


Last time I looked, I didn't find any threads on Air Forums that focus on exercise adapted for trailers and motorhomes. Plenty of information about healthy eating routines on the road, but that's only half the fitness equation. The other half is exercise. Sometimes there are weather and location issues that preclude outdoor exercise, so indoor options seem like an obvious need.

I like to use the 2x4 technique in lifting like that. Invite 4 sturdy neighbors over, and purchase 2 cases of beer for the after party. Pizza optional. Just be sure the beer is opened after the heavy lifting is done 😄

Amazon!

I went with the "Ambient weather WS-11" $80. They have a wide range I am sure you will find something to meet your needs/budget.

So far I am very happy with mine.

I guess so! Mostly stretching, but bodyweight exercises are the most fuel-efficient. Though I do have one dumbbell with square sides to keep it from rolling.

Is the aisle in your interstate at least as wide as a yoga mat? If so, you can do a lot in that space.
