Personally (and this won’t be a lot of help to you) when travelling I use an ancient small Black & Decker 12V ‘corded’ vacuum cleaner (image attached below) that has a reasonable amount of suck, is vey light and takes up little space. For more thorough cleaning at home I use a domestic vacuum cleaner.

We have a VAX Gator cordless, it's used in the home and the M/H
costs about £40.00 all round good product.
Hope this helps.

Agree on the VAX. Only comes with a mains charger so fully charge before we set off and then recharge when on hook up.

I have a couple of Dyson fairly old hand-held vacuum cleaners (model DC16) and was fortunate in buying a 12v charger for them; we take one with us when we tour in the MH. The charger is just the usual plastic shoe into which the cleaner battery slides with a 12v plug on the end of a length of cable. Unfortunately I'm not sure that the 12v charger (bought on EBay two or three years ago) is still available and the battery voltage on the cleaner is labelled as 21v - so quite how a 12v charger works I'm not sure. Nevertheless these old Dysons work very well for us one charge being plenty for a clean through. It takes three or so hours to recharge from a 12v socket and the solar panels seem to take that in their stride too.

If you have other batteries for other power tools, look to see whether that brand range has a vacuum cleaner.
I use Makita power tools so the cleaner actually didn't cost me the battery or the charger, came in under 50 pounds for a quality product.

ditto.

The cord is long enough to reach the extremes of the 'van from the 12V outlets therein, (though I've switched the plug for a convertible DIN/Cigar lighter one for convenience) and it has survived for many years and multiple vans (which, in my experience, the rechargeable ones don't).

The current equivalent B&D "car" vacuum is available at not much over £20.

To quote "Trigger" ........

We have had a short lightweight broom since caravaning days.

Still works well, low maintenance and we love it - it's had 4 new heads and 3 new handles but it's a really good old broom!

It's that KISS principle again!

I carry a plastic dust-pan and brush (kept in the well of the spare-wheel in the rear garage) that would be useful if I tipped a carton of corn-flakes on the Rapido’s carpeted floor - but it’s hardly a substitute for a small vacuum cleaner.

Regarding your ‘original axe’ broom, I’ve attached a photo of the multi-purpose tool that I keep in an underseat storage locker. Ideal for really wild camping and available quite cheaply through the Russian dark net equivalent to ebay.

Gtech have just emailed me with a special offer.
They have them daily.
But this one might suit your needs.
SW02 power sweeper upright that can be hand held too.
£49.99.
Superb bit of kit complete with a dust brush and it cleans up to the edge.
