Hi: All... We have a self cleaning trailer. If I want it cleaned I have to do it myself!!!
Actually we have a very compact single handle brush and dust pan. Clicks together and fits in a very narrow spot. The mats are shake and see. We only clean for company!!! Alf

We have a B&D 12V that works great. The thing is, we rarely use it, as the whisk does a great job. Once in a while it comes out to do between the screen track and the door.

This is a favorite topic on the CastiaForum. Mainly because that brand comes standard with floor carpet and there's carpet on the walls. I bookmarked the hands down favorite: Amazon.com - Eureka EasyClean Corded Hand-Held Vacuum, 71B - Household Handheld Vacuums

I have that one and the B&D Flex Mini and I much prefer the B&D Flex. Different strokes...

We also have the Bissell featherweight (got it at Walmart for $20). FeatherWeight Vacuum - Bissell Homecare Inc 3106L - Handheld & Stick Vacuums - Camping World
Works great, fits in the closet. You can use it as a dust buster and I like the crevice tool (for those pesky corners between the screen and the outside door).

Wait a minute! No one told me it was necessary to clean a trailer!

I'm still a tent camper - for the remainder of this year anyway. When dirt gets into the tent all I need do is tip the tent 90 degrees and the dirt falls out the front door. Is there some reason I can't do the same with my upcoming 21'? Or am I missing the big picture...?

Or the leaf blower? Seriously, at the fall NOG in Silverfalls SP, Oregon, I couldn't figure out what the loud noise was next door. The gentleman next door had brought his leaf blower to blow the fir needles off his campsite.

Years ago I was on a bicycle tour, camping at a county park near a small southern Indiana town. I am with a couple of friends, and we are sitting at the picnic table enjoying a cold beer after a hot day's ride. A fellow pulled up with a travel trailer pulled by a pickup. It takes them about 20 minutes to get the trailer positioned just right with many directions shouted between husband and wife. Then out from the pick-up comes a power lawn mower to mow what was (to us at least) a perfectly well mowed campsite with about 200 square feet of grass. This piece d resistance was the erection of a small wrought iron fence, probably 2 feet tall around the perimeter of said camp site. The fence was complete with a little front gate. One of my friends pulled another beer out of the six pack, and said, "Man, there is nothing like getting away from it all..."
