Have you tried it out yet? Let's here your review of it please. Dustpan and brush is hard work in the fight against doghair,sand and grit and other sh**e that gets dragged, blown or dropped in the van, so I'm looking for an easier life. No.. before you all say get HIM to do it, the deal in our house on wheels is that I do domestic and he does driving and testnical! Here's hoping your new toy lives up to expectation.

I look forward to reading your review on your new toy - we have been looking for something to replace the dustpan & brush as well!!

Suej, my husband and I have the same deal as you regarding van duties so I, too, look forward to your review on this item!

I'd be interested too. When we viewed the Hymer I'm now buying, the girlfriend insisted that the dog would have to be restrained to keep her off the upholstery. I must admit that dog hair is a right *^&&$% to get out of the carpet, even in my flat. It seems to weave itself in. It almost seems to become electrically charged and refuses to be brushed off.

Vacuuming does get some of it, but only one hair at a time! It takes ages on hands and knees.

I don't want to restrain the dog, and the girlfriend might find herself having to bar herself from the MH because of the dog (who came first). So I hope your new toy does the trick.

its brilliant picks up dog hair dust the lot
it plugs into cigarette lighter so need to charge before use
lead plenty long enough to reach into back of motorhome
works on carpet and hard surface
removable filter you just wash
comes with a neat bag to store away
best buy in ages

downside comes with an extension tube and brush this is useless no power but to be honest you dont need it and i wouldnt use it

our dog is a jack russel so hair is short really but a pain in the butt picked up no trouble

Thanks for that you2. Now to persuade HIM that it's another essential piece of kit to be carted about!
