We use the corded Shark and it does a great job. It is small enough to stow away in your trailer. It is the best vacuum we ever bought.

We use a small hand held rechargeable. Black and decker. It's much easier with the small size to suck up bugs flying around the lights at night after dw leaves the door open too long.

We used to use a B&D hand held vac. Our current TT has a built in vacuum system.

We installed the Dirt Devil central vac system for trailers in ours. I fits nicely under the bench of the dinning table. Easy to install and only have to worry about the hose afterwards.

Installed the Dirt Devil in the basement with the hose connection on the 2nd step going to the bedroom. It has plenty of power and a 35' hose.

Another Dirt Devil install. Truth be told- it's not a great vacuum, but it's really convenient.

And, IKEA had a nice hose hanger that I hung in a cabinet.
