    Any recommendations for a lightweight, small, 12V rechargeable battery operated vacuum cleaner for sucking up all those crumbs?

    We've got a GTech Multi that comes with us on longer trips.

    It copes with dog hairs pretty well so it won't have any problems with crumbs.

    The GTech Multi is 240v isn't it? OP wants a 12v vacuum.

    Nope. Cordless, rechargeable.

    I know it's cordless and rechargeable but it still requires 240v to charge it.

    Ditto.
    Takes next to nothing to charge it. Less than 2 hours and very little draw from the batteries.
    Works fabulously too. Tried the cheap options and eventually bit the bullet.

    Dust pan and brush for us :) we dont use the carpets so easy. We do have mats a use a stiff brush on them. But thought about a cordless, we had a dirt devil in the past and its suction was weak. :( Will watch thread to see if any good ones come up :)

    Funnily enough, we have just be having this very conversation on which vacuum to get, and we were swaying towards a dyson. So, will watch the thread with interest.

    Two straws and a ping pong ball.

    After a good game of blow football with the door open, all dust will soon be gone!

    No mats, she uses a brush when it builds up!

    Another vote for the DC44 Animal. Brilliant for pet hair. We take ours away with us.
    The only negative, when using on max, is that it doesn't last long before you have to charge it again.

    If you want a cheap solution you could get one of these 12v Black and Decker vacs. I have one and it works well enough in the MH and no worries about recharging. It would not be useful in the home though!



    It is currently £34ish, from 3:59pm on Wednesday for a limited time it is going to be a lightning deal on Amazon, they will probably be selling it for around £28.

    Not sure what happened there with the above post, I included a link but it is not showing. Search Amazon for:

    BLACK + DECKER PAD1200 Auto Flexi Car Vacuum, 12 V
