    We are needing to purchase a new vacuum cleaner. We need one with a fold down handle and fairly small but with a powered beater bar. Please share your thoughts with us. Thank you. Sue

    Dirt devil or other small lightweight vacuum in the $50/80 range. Wal-Mart carries a couple of brands. We still use a small Dirt Devil 3amp vacuum we purchased 12 years ago (has beater bar). Works great when you are out and about. :laugh:

    Sorry guys. My wife claims she has back problems everytime it's time to vacuum. I know all the ins and outs of what vacuum to use on the road. I also carry a very small 1 gal Shop Vac to do all the hard to reach places and of course the interior of my DODGE CTD. :approve:

    I carry a small wet/dry vacuum (Dewalt) ever since I didn't use a water pressure regulator and blew the toilet supply line. Great for getting up puddles, and for getting in corners and spilled cat litter. Then for the floor area, I use a Hoover Flair bagless stick vaccuum with powered beater which seems to do a pretty good job on the carpet and tile for its size and weight.

    If size and weight (and cost) is a concern, I got a gonga deal on a Shark HEPA handheld with a suction powered beater brush at Walgreens after the holidays. Seems to work pretty good if you don't mind getting down on your hands and knees to sweep.

    We have a Central Vac. Put it in our old 5er, and then transferred it to the new one. Great all attchments fit under the bed.
    Cost was $300.00. It's about the size of a 5 gallon bucket. Plus I use it to clean my truck when I have a few minutes up in the hills.

    Well now, just saw a neat entry in this market at a RV show.

    Small (less than 10 x 19 x 6), light (8 lbs), powerful (11 amps), available in white, black or beige. It can be temporaily mounted on any surface (4 keyhole mounting slots) or mounted flush in a cutout. Hose reaches at least 35 feet. HEPA filtration is available. There is a 'built in' model available so you could mount this in a bay and have just a switched outlet inside the 'house'. Looked to be very well made and the show price seemed reasonable for a 'built in'.

    The web site is www.intervacdesign.com, and the guy who demonstrated it to me (who may be able to give a better price and upgrade to 10 year warranty) is Mort Jensen (805)-720-1888. Camping World catalog lists the same thing with a Dometic label.

    They claim most people don't need them, but there is an air powered and a rechargable battery powered beater brush available as options.
