Do you normally carry a vacuum cleaner in your RV?

When you’re RVing, do you normally bring a vacuum cleaner along with you on your travels? We’re sure your answer depends on a lot of things (like if you have pets, if you’re a full-timer, etc.) but generally speaking, do you?

If you’re looking for a small, lightweight vacuum cleaner for your RV, check this one out. It’s one of the highest-rated on all of Amazon, and it will tuck away and store nicely. Happy spring cleaning!

We have an Armstrong vacuum, otherwise known as a broom

We use a Dyson V6 Powerhead that I bought refurbished from several years ago and have been very happy with it. We can hold the entire unit with one hand, but it certainly is NOT small.

While we have a central Vac, I bought a Roomba for the RV. However, we don’t have any carpeting inside the RV. I also have an air purifier which cuts down on the amount of dust we have.

Central vac but I hate that big heavy hose. Would rather have a vac and suitable storage location.

I have a good selection of Milwaukee M-18 & M-12 tools including a hand held M-18 vacuum. Earlier this year, I replaced the HEPA filter (the original filter lasted OVER 5 years).

I carry a Royal Scorpion handheld and a small stick vacuum that I purchased at a yard sale for $5 years ago. I boondock a lot and the dirt accumulates quickly.

NO CARPETS!!! Best invention since sliced bread. Have built in but have never opened the box and will never open the box!

I answered ‘yes’ because I have a central vacuum system in our motor home.

We have a central vacuum in our rig, and I love it! Just have to grab the hose and I’m vacuuming in no time, and it does a great job.

A Miele “ pet dander” canister vacuum, we have a built in but never use it, the bag is too small for the pet hair. Then when we return home my husband gets the STIHL cordless blower out. That’s the fun part.

While we have a central vac in the rig we don’t like fighting the long kinking hose. We leave the hose and attachments for that at home and carry a small vacuum instead. We always fully clean the floors by vacuum followed by wet swiffer before bringing slides in.

We do use the little floor opening of the central vac system to suck up sweepings for quick cleanups. That function is pretty nice.
