Choosing the right vacuum for your recreational vehicle, is a bit different than picking one for your home. It has to be smaller and more streamlined and it has to be able to fit into a storage area, without taking up too much space. At the same time, it has to be powerful enough to remove loose dirt.
While spending the day outdoors and participating in camping related activities, you and your family can track-in soil and debris. If you have pets, it can make the problem much worse. So, the best small vacuum for your RV also has to be effective. Here are a few good examples of vacuums that can handle the job.
