    We have a dyson DC34 handheld, but only get about 6 mins of use before it dies, which is useless when wildcamping. We also have a crappy cheap 12v vac which won't pick anything up and we end up brushing the carpet.

    'hoovering' and 'wild camping' ... surely an oxymoron :Laughing:

    We have one of these, they are great. They hold a good charge too. Its got its special place in the bottom of the motorhome wardrobe.
    It gets plenty of use , once a day to get up all the ginger dog hairs and biscuit crumbs :RollEyes:
    We bought one for my gran , once her hoover got too much for her too . They are light just like the old fashioned carpet sweepers you used to be able to get , and come with a removable long handle.

    I too wild camp, I too have a handheld, rechargeable Dyson... where we differ is that I find 6 full minutes of vacuuming enough to last any true Englishman a couple of months at least... :Wink:

    we have a small 12v cylinder type vacuum, looks like a biscuit barrel, which couldn't suck ash from an ashtray, but it looks like I'm making the effort when I do use it. :Wink:

    Oh, dear oh, I am shocked at all the chauvinistic replies on here......you men should be ashamed of yourselves:Sad::Blush:
    Think of all the exercise you'd get if you'd only try doing some hoovering, washing up etc................:Blush:

    I'll go and ask her, hang on a minute she's asleep........................................................... ........................................................................ ...........................................................well, difficult to write one handed with a sore eye as well. Turns out we've got a Bl**dy useless 12volt thingy which wouldn't suck flour of a work surface and a dustpan and brush.

    Where do we keep it? hang on I'll go and wake her again.........................................
    ................................................................I can't play anymore she says I've got to go in............Griff
