    Or more specifically vacum cleaners?

    Along the lines of the Dirt Devil, small, rotating beater type head for carpets, suck/hose with basic tools for every were else, 240volt OK but really suggestions/advise on good ones please?

    Yeah yeah, I know, but we like to keep the 'van clean and the little 12volt we have isn't much cop frankley.

    Used to have a hand held Dirt Devil but found it a bit small for the RV so we bought a small Panasonic cylinder model from Makro .. about £25 .. with all the tools and great for vacuuming the toad :thumb:

    Yes please - suggestions!:thumb: We've had a 240 volt Dirt Devil Room Mate for YEARS that I've repaired i can't remember how many times just to keep it going because they dont make them anymore and I cant for the life of me find a suitable lightweight yet powerfull 240 volt vac' which has revolving brushes?

    Sorry Dodgy, please consider me a friendly "border" rather than a hi-jacker!:ROFLMAO:
