A good small vacuum

Looking for a small bagless vacuum for our RV. Will be for dirt, sand and pine needles. Anyone have any suggestions....love my shark cordless at home but I would rather not spend hundreds of dollars.

Thanks

I bought a Eureka AirSpeed 2-in-1 from Best Buy for $19.99. Sounds cheap but, got this over a year ago and still works great. Works on carpet and bare floor, picks up dog hair, pebbles, sand.

I clean the filter when I get home using my Shop Vac (this may help it).

For carpet or upholstery I've found no better than this -- I've found a rotating brush essential with two dogs on board: https://dirtdevil.com/products/detai...ndheld-vacuum/

We bought the Shark cored one.Works great. Got it at Sams last year.About $120.00 or so.Wife likes it as it's light and has great suction.

We bought one like this one last year and I use it at home, in the car, and camping.

Little FYI, if you have a Shark (my wife does), don't drop it on anything hard (she did) and it broke at the handle (so now she has a new one). Nice hand vac, not too strong when dropped.

I put the dirt devil vroom in my mh.
Canister and hose under the bed, the hose retracts into itself. It can reach all the way up to the front of the cab.

We got a dirt devil. Picked up at Walmart for less than $100. Has powered head and extension for doing floors and carpet. Also can be used as handheld. Rechargeable and multi speed with lots of power from what we've seen.

We are kind of old-skool but have good luck with a little baby Shop-Vac.

(Here is a link to the current incarnation of it, cheap at Wally Land ... https://www.walmart.com/ip/Shop-Vac-...y-Vac/55042491 This current version appears to have a blower outlet as well ... )

It is a corded-plug in but the up sides are it really sucks (literally) and it can double-duty as a wet vac. Stows in a milk crate with the hose wrapped around it. The Crevice Tool is what you want for cleaning up that slot under the slide-out before you pull it back in (like to make sure there is nothing that will ... muck up the rollers etc.)

Add a dog brush attachment if you have a furry kid. (The Dyson attachment is wonderful, and you can get one without the Dyson sticker for about 1/3 the price from eBay / China Inc. )

Full Disclosure ... it is NOT quiet. But it really sucks.

My dog is a Shih-Tsu with long hair. No where as much shed hair as my cat which is a 20#+ Maine Coon. Try using that pet hair attachment of the cat and it will take many hours to sew up the lacerations "kitty" would leave on hands, arms, and other parts it can reach as it scrambles to evade the vacuum cleaner.


I used to carry a Dirt Devil but the bag on our model started to smell and he roller got wound up with hair.

Let's be honest now, that's not a Cat, that is a Lion.

From one of TitanMike's previous posts:


We think Kitty as awesome.

We have a Dirt Devil, it's small enough we keep it under the step that goes up to the bedroom. It's older than the trailer.

Yeah it's got a bag, but we don't have pets so it gets emptied once a season and works great.

We got a Shark corded on sale at Sam's for $129. Really wanted a Dyson stick (have a reg Dyson at home). But I have to say it was a great buy and works great so far (first time out with it). Does a great job on carpets, has hardwood attachment, and can be a hand vac with the usual attachments. Great suction. Nothing negative at all to say.
