What kind of vacuum cleaner do you use?

My TT is stored 250 miles away, so I am forced to keep a lot of things there to avoid dragging them back and forth. It is stored at the ocean so as you may guess, I get a lot of sand! I just purchased a Bissell Zinger. It is a small canister unit that should fit right in the dinette ottoman for storage. It doesn't have a power brush, but does have lots of suction. The reviews for it all mentioned the how great the suction was, some even said it was too much. I figure it can do both the carpet and kitchen floors, plus it had attachments for curtains, corners etc. Automatic cord rewind as well. I think it has a 10 amp motor, so I will have to be careful with whats running so as not to blow a breaker. For $60 I think I did ok.

We have a Bissell E Z Vac. Pulls 7 amps, and does a great job. We don't have the sand that you mention, though. Got it at Wallymart.

We bought the Eureka stick vac from Wallymart. It has a removeable power brush, is bagless and I can store it in the closet. Best of all..... less than $30 bucks!!

We bought a Electrolux 12volt vacuum from Costco. It has a detachable hand vac built into the handle. Works well and would recommend it.

I installed the Dirt Devil central Vac in our unit and the DW loves it, no more lugging the big house vac out to the trailer to clean up after a trip. She is able to clean when we are gone as well.


It was a simple install and works like a champ.

IMHO the best but most expensive option is the Dysan Slim. LOVE IT. Wife loves it too. Chargeable, no cord. Great for sand.

I bought it without telling my wife beacause it was every expensive. (I heard it was so good.) Now my wife loves it. Had to buy her one for the house.
