not sure of model,but will let you know next time i visit the van,we have a electrolux,hand held mains power with attachments and tube for tight spaces.It even has revolving bristles and a flip down front pannel so you can clean vertical seats etc without having to tilt the vacuum,you can even select if you want the brushes to spin or not.Its powerful and bagless and costs about 50 quid.we love it,cordless are usually crap and pick up nothing

A 16 amp supply for a vacuum cleaner,what is it,3 phase.2kw heaters are only 13 amp,go do your maths


What I was implying is that it needs a good power supply.
I'm not sure what the power consumption of the unit is, but it trips any site supply that is less than 16A on start up so site supplies of 6A, 8A, or 10A will be no good. It has a 13A fuse fitted so must draw less than that but more than 10A. It runs quite happily when my caravan hookup is connected to a 13A socket at home but consideration in my reply is given that the OP may not ever take their van home and may use storage so will only ever use it on hookup.
And FYI a 2kW heater drawers 8.3A not 13A, go check your maths!

Sorry to the OP for my rant, buy some people on here appear to just like to pick up on others omissions in their posts with petty comments. Pity they can't put up a decent post themselves. "not sure of model,but will let you know next time i visit the van" or "and costs about". What sort of help is that to the OP?

Really glad to see this!

We bought a cheapy cylinder from Tesco which us truly rubbish and have decided with two dogs and a passion for a pine needley site in the lakes we needed a better cleaner.

We had thought about the Dyson Animal handheld with extension bits and hoped it was as good as anticipated so it's nice to send the responses. Do people leave the docking bit at home?

What im implying is a 2kw heater will have a 13 amp fuse.Working out ampage is not rocket science,simply divide watts by voltage eg,1500 watts divide by 240 volt =6.25 amp.I did my maths years ago when i got my city and guilds in electronics.Have a good day and get a decent vac???

Another vote for the Argos basics vaccum here, lovely little powerful machine and ours was bought in their half price promotion a couple of years ago for under 20, and is still going strong. Picks up anything from metal dust out of our car boot well after the tow bar was fitted, to small pebbles and slate shale from a welsh hardstanding pitch, and is good for getting into the crevices on the car and caravan using one of its supplied tools including a selection of brushes for removing pet hair.
