    Was going to get a rechargeable Dyson for the MH today, went to Makro, they are about £150 so no chance. What do you do to hoover the place out while away.

    We tried a 12v car vac but there was little suction. Ended up with a Dyson mini pull along. The wand is telescopic so the whole thing fits under one of the seats. It's 240v so we've got a dust pan and brush for little jobs

    We bought the little Dyson rechargeable. Not cheap but it Hoovers, sorry Dysons up dog hairs which is what we got it for. Our van has carpets everywhere. A stiff brush would do the same job I guess but hard work when it is hot.

    We use a thing on a long stick. I think it's called a broom! It's very good.

    Get your carpets removed, and the problem goes away. My MH carpet is in the loft and is only like to re-emerge if I want to sell it.
