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.

We like the hand held Dirt Devil, too. Small, compact and powerful enough for quick cleanups and extracting flying insects when needed.

The filter and catch-box empty and wash easily.

We keep a Dyson dc24 in the closet. Its small enough and the handle collapses down that it does not obstruct the hanging clothes. I purchased it in black Friday for 250.

tore out all of the carpet, installed VCT, so a good broom and dust pan work just fine. Scatter rugs, I shake outside weekly.....

Dyson DC 35 - just sprang for one. I took mine home last night and just couldn't stop vacuuming! Spiders died, venetian blinds were cleaned to a parade rest, every bathmat and area rug got done, the bare floors were clean - even in the floors. The thing barely makes any noise compared to most small vacuums. I emptied the dust cup about 4 times. I left it in the charger so I can do the overhead cabinets tonight... and maybe under the stove top... and the bottom of the refrigerator. OOH, how about the A/C filters, and the furnace and Reefer vents. (I believe I love this vacuum!)

I've tried lots of cheaper ones, and just was never satisfied because:
  1. they don't work well in tight spaces
  2. "Attachments" are held on by friction - and fall off at least twice during any vacuuming event. The Dyson ones lock on!
  3. most of the dust buster types don't work well at all as stick vacuums - they move more dirt around than they pick up
  4. NOISE LEVEL - anyone want an Oreck hand held - CHEAP?
  5. nasty little cups that fill up and then have to be washed with every third use.
I think these things are actually worth the money. I might recommend we get a big one for the office.

Paula

My goodness, that is a lot of energy! I'm sure your house is very, very happy.

We are moving toward getting a Dyson for the house, but a little handheld just has to do when we are on the road.

Have fun!

Dyson makes two products we wouldn't want to be without in our trailer, the small vacuum and the Dyson hot heater. But we spend 6 months a year (winter) in our trailer. For weekends and summer vacation, that's another story, you don't need them.

We keep the heater under the dinette and it heats the entire trailer evenly and at a preset temperature. The vacuum is mounted on the wall in the bedroom in the corner under the tv, always handy, has an unused electrical outlet there for charging, and is out of the way.

For a quality handheld rechargable battery unit, this one I like. Very handy.
