I purchased a Shop Vac wall mount unit, which has a narrow cylinder body. The unit can mount in a closet, is detachable, and has a 20′ hose, which from the center of my rig can almost reach both ends.
Upon arriving in Florida on my first winter full timing the toilet developed a crack and water started to leak toward the carpeted areas. The Shop Vac was able to suck up the water before any damage was done. I also use it for the carpets in my car, as well as the storage bays under the motorhome. I was just under $50. Good luck and safe travels.
