    After 9 weeks away we are fed up with all the dust/sand/French breadcrumbs that accumulates around in the corners of our van and fed up with brushing out every day. Can anyone suggest a small compact lightweight handheld mains vacuum (not a Dyson) that you have found to work well? Needs to have a pipe attachment.

    We have got a Ewbank Chilli 1000w vacuum through Amazon it can be used as an upright or stripped down to a hand held, very easy to store, remarkably powerful and has a good selection of tools. Very impressed and comes with excellent reviews from Amazon customers, best of all it is great VFM.

    We have one of these, 3 dogs, works great, but does need mains electric to recharge. Brush and hose, washable filter. Black and Decker dustbuster. Very compact.

    Thanks for your replies so far - keep them coming as they are really helpful. We will check out the Gtech when we get home as that looks good Nicknic

    Not the answer to your question but might be useful to someone...

    We've tried several small vacuum cleaners and not got on with any in the van so back to using a dustpan and brush and a small ( toy ) brush with a long handle that is exactly like a reduced size broom. I don' t sweep every day but then am a slovenly soul.

    What I find really useful however is a 1 inch wide paintbrush- part of a Poundland set- which is very useful indeed for fetching the dirt out of awkward places between furniture units, in the shower room and around bed and table legs.

    I'm watching this thread avidly and I remember those dust busters.. would be perfect.. although I bet if they still made them they would be expensive.

    I want to run a small Hoover off the inverter for the same reasons and so need it to be small and low powered but those handheld really don't so it for me..
