    hi all

    I'm looking at buying a cordless hand held vac - the missus wasn't impressed with my dust pan & brush birthday present.
    So, my questions are - do you have a vac for your motorhome?
    Can you re-charge it without being on mains hook up?
    What make & model is it and is it any good?

    I'm not wanting to spend a fortune as it will be kept just for the van but having said that, I want one that's going to be up to the job.
    Appreciate your suggestions and replies!

    Yes we have a Dyson jobbie and it is on the inverter and mains supply

    Trouble is we always forget it's there and get out the bigger Dyson

    Dyson 59 which I also use in the house. Charge it off the inverter if not on hook up. It lasts about 20 mins continuous running on a charge. It is brilliant and well worth the money.

    Dyson does a great job and does not take up a lot of space.

    Dyson for us and we have a £30 inverter from Maplins which runs from a cigar socket to recharge it.

    We take our GTech Multi with us, handy to get into corners! Charge last well but when necessary charge up on EHU or use inverter
    Highly recommend for home and MH

    That Dyson looks good and Siân want's one, but my experience of Dysons has not been good, had 3 and all ended up crocked for one reason or another. Swore I'd never buy another. When we moved to Wales in 2003 I bought a Miele, its been used every day since then and still works as good as it did on day one. A little too big for the van though.

    Domestic Management recently purchased a rechargeable handheld vac from Robert Dyas, obviously not a premium offering like the Dyson, but it seems to work (may be a Hoover something or other). However, I will refrain from asking her about the specifics for fear of her thinking I am exhibiting a personal interest, which could be wrongly perceived as my "volunteering" to participate in related activities...;)

    My feelings toward Dyson were much like Jims, then we read the last thread on vacuum cleaners where everybody seemed to rave about the new Dyson DC59 Animal.

    Last week when the Dyson man came to repair one of her many Dysons we spoke to him about it and ended up taking one from him.

    So far I am very impressed, so much so that I have fixed the wall bracket in the Garage for recharge purposes. Our new MoHo has a large inverter system which powers all the sockets including the one in the Garage, so recharging shouldn't be an issue.

    We have carpets, but they're on the spare bed in the house.
    Don't ask.

    lots of votes for the Dyson here, i hate the household ones mainly because of the stupid flexible tube that shortens on suction and pulls the machine over BUT the DC59 jobby does the biz in the motorhome. It was my Christmas present actually, well the vans as I got nothing.

    I've had holidays that cost me less than that Dyson. But I know my place; Siân will win eventually, and we'll end up with another piece of over-priced purple plastic.
