Clean Machine: Dyson DC31

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

It’s just a fact of life on the road – vehicle interiors get dirty, quickly. Even if you’re camping at a high-end RV park, you’ll eventually track in dirt and debris. That’s where a good cordless vacuum comes in handy, but not all of them work as promised.


The new hand-held Dyson DC31 actually does what it claims – it doesn’t lose suction. The 2.9-pound vacuum cleaner is powered by a digital motor that, according to the company, is the fastest, most power-efficient motor ever developed for a hand-held, and the 104,000 rpm motor is five times faster than a Formula 1 race car engine, yet it emits zero carbon emissions.

The unit has a 22.2-volt lithium ion battery that recharges in 3 1/2 hours when plugged into 120-volt AC power. With a full charge, the vacuum runs for at least 10 minutes on regular power, or six minutes on high.

The Dyson comes with a combination accessory tool that converts to a brush, which works well for cleaning day/night shades or carpeted areas, and a separate crevice tool. Of course, all of this cordless convenience comes at a price. The DC31 has an MSRP of $210.99 and comes with a two-year warranty.
