Looking for a new vacuum can be quite stressful when it comes to weighing the price versus the quality of the vacuum cleaner. However, when you look at the Dyson V7 Car + Boat, the price and quality are both sure to suck you in!


One of the biggest problems when purchasing a new vacuum for your motorhome is finding one powerful enough to get the job done, but small enough to fit in the storage space available to you.

The Dyson V7 Car + Boat vacuum is small enough it can fit in even the smallest of motorhome cupboards!

Store the small handheld vacuum and all of its accessories in one of the overhead storage areas, in the bedroom closet, under the kitchen sink, or in the bathroom! Wherever you want to keep your vacuum, the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum is sure to fit!


Just because this vacuum comes in a smaller package, does not mean that it is not powerful enough to get the job done.

In fact, the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum provides suction of an amazing 100 Air Watts in its most powerful mode!

If you haven’t spent much time studying vacuum cleaners then you may not know exactly what an “Air Watt” even means for you vacuum cleaner’s cleaning ability.

An air watt is essentially the measurement of power that the vacuum cleaner is putting out (in the form of suction). The measurement of air watt is found by multiplying the vacuum cleaner’s airflow by its water lift (how many inches the vacuum’s motor can lift one inch of water).

Wondering how strong this vacuum cleaner’s suction actually is? Well, don’t take it from me, take it from one of Dyson’s many pleased customers!

“… It did an amazing job getting cat fur off my ultrasuede couch and recliner; so much better than a lint roller, and the crevice tool got crumbs stuck deep in the crevices.”

Happy Dyson customer

Whether you are trying to get the stubborn pet hair off your furniture or if you are trying to clean all the dirt out of your carpet, the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum has the power to do so!


Now let’s discuss possibly the most important portion of the vacuum cleaner, all the cool features available in the model!

The first feature of the Dyson V7 Car + Boat 2 Tier Radial cyclones used to grab all the dirt and debris that gets tracked into your motorhome while camping.

To ensure you can clean your entire motorhome without needing to stop to recharge, the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum gives you 30 minutes of battery life when on full power!

When you are ready to dump your vacuum cleaner, forget about changing a dirty dusty bag or accidentally dropping the detachable bin (believe me you don’t want to do either of those things)!

This Dyson vacuum cleaner allows you to dump the dust from the bottom of the collection bin. With the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum you can keep your motorhome AND your hands clean!

As you vacuum your motorhome, you don’t ever want to be using a vacuum cleaner stuck on low suction mode. This isn’t a problem with the Dyson V7 Car + Boat!

When you choose one of the two different power modes, MAX and powerful, you can know that the Dyson V7 Car + Boat is putting in the hard work necessary to get your motorhome as clean as possible.


The accessories that accompany the vacuum cleaner you buy are the perfect way to customize your cleaning style!

Whether you are working to clean up after messy kids, dirty pets, or just from everyday life, Dyson provides you with the perfect accessories to get the job done!

The first accessory we will discuss is the charging attachments for your vacuum cleaner. The Dyson V7 Car + Boat comes with both a wall charger and a portable car charger in order to make it perfect for use while traveling in your motorhome.

Simply plug your vacuum cleaner into the car or motorhome while driving and have it ready to use as soon as you reach your next destination!

Put your feather duster away, and attach the mini soft dusting brush to your Dyson V7 Car + Boat! With this tool, you are able to clean any delicate surfaces such as television screens or mirrors.

With all of the different surfaces in your motorhome, it is important to have the correct tools and accessories needed to clean each one. When using the combination tool on your Dyson vacuum cleaner, you are able to switch easily between an upholstery cleaner and a long brush!

Want to get all the hard to reach crumbs out of your motorhome’s sofa or dining area? Attach the crevice tool and suddenly your vacuum is able to reach crumbs in even the smallest of spaces.

As I have mentioned before, motorhome carpets tend to easily collect dirt and dust. Normal vacuum cleaners struggle to remove hard dried on dirt; however, with the Dyson V7 Car + Boat stiff bristle brush attachment, even the stubbornest of dirt gets removed.

The mini motorhead attachment is simply a smaller version of what a larger vacuum cleaner would look like.

This tool has the spinning rod the collects dirt and debris wherever you are in the motorhome. Worried that the rod will get tangled and cause a problem with the vacuum cleaner?

Simply insert a coin or other small object into the detachment button and the rod will be easily released, making cleaning your Dyson a breeze!

And the final accessory everyone needs in their motorhome is the extension hose! Make each of the other tools and accessories reach just a little further by attaching them to Dyson’s extension hose!

No matter what mess you have or where you are in your motorhome, the Dyson V7 Car + Boat Vacuum has all the features, tools, and accessories you need to be packed into a small, easy to handle the machine.

Central Vacuum Cleaner System for Motorhomes

If there just still isn’t room in your motorhome for even a handheld vacuum cleaner like the one described above, you may enjoy trying out a central vacuum cleaner system!

First of all, what even is a central vacuum cleaner system. Well, this system is a vacuum cleaner that is built into the motorhome. This “internal vacuum cleaner” collects dirt, debris, and crumbs, and sends it all through tubes to a collection bin.

Why take the space to store a separate vacuum cleaner when you can turn the motorhome into its own vacuum cleaner.

For an example and explanation of how to use a motorhome’s central vacuum system, watch the video below! Remember to keep in mind that each model will not be exactly like the one pictured.

The Road Vac

One company that installs powerful, and space-saving central vacuum systems, is Road Vac. With the Road Vac, your motorhome will come equipped with a HEPA filtration bag, a 3-year warranty, and so much more!


Like most other central vacuum systems, the Road Vac requires minimal space for installation.

In fact, this model is so small that you are able to install it under a seat, in a cupboard, or any other accessible unused space!

Worried that the central vacuum hose won’t be able to reach everywhere you need in your motorhome? With the 40 foot long stretchable (and flexible) hose, you will be able to clean from one end of the motorhome to the other no problem!

Don’t worry about storing a hose that long, the 40-foot hose retracts itself down to 8 feet and when coiled, can take up less than 15 inches of storage space!

One of the biggest benefits of installing a central vacuum system is that the only weight you have to carry while vacuuming is that of the lightweight hose!

All the weight of the vacuum cleaner is stored in the cabinet or unused space and not on you!


As we discussed with the Dyson handheld vacuum cleaner above, the suction and effectiveness of your new vacuum cleaner is one of the most important things to look at.

When we compare the Air Watt rating of the Road Vac to that of the Dyson V7 Car + Boat, we see that the Road Vac gets 4 times as many air watts.

This amounts to twice the amount of power from a normal household vacuum cleaner.

Most central vacuum cleaner systems are going to have higher air watts than other types of vacuum cleaners, guaranteeing that you can get your motorhome as clean as possible.


Although a central vacuum system is not going to be equipped with all the same features as a smaller more specialized vacuum cleaners, the Road Vac will give you everything you need to get the job done.

Possibly one of the most important features in this model is the High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter.

In the Road Vac, it’s HEPA air filter is capable of keeping 99.97% of airborne pollutants, particles, viruses, and bacteria out of your motorhome’s air.

Let’s not forget another feature of the Road Vac is the extremely powerful motor capable of cleaning up even the toughest of messes anywhere in your motorhome.

Perhaps the greatest feature of all is that the vacuum cleaner does not even need to take up any of your existing storage space.

Central vacuum systems are able to be installed the outdoor storage areas or even into “dead space” under a bench or bed!


Once again we are at everyone’s favorite part of vacuum shopping. All the accessories that come along!

With the Road Vac, you get a 7 piece set to help you keep your motorhome in tip-top shape.

The most important accessory is the 40-foot stretchable hose. After all, without this tool, you would be unable to use the central vacuum system.

For all of the different surfaces and messes you will come across in your motorhome, the Road Vac comes with 5 different hose attachments.

These attachments include the extension wand, a crevice tool, a stiff bristle dirt brush, an upholstery brush, and a floor brush.

To help make storage of all these tools more manageable, Road Vac includes a mesh storage bag with your purchase of the central vacuum cleaner system.

Once you use the Road Vac central vacuum system, you are sure to never return to a regular handheld or household vacuum cleaner again!
