The carpet that Casita applies to the walls has Kangaback backing. This is premium padding already attached to the carpet which helps insulate the Casita.

Casita glues the carpet with Kangaback to walls, wheel wells, ceiling, inside cabinets and other surfaces. I have always just vacuumed exposed carpet after returning home from trips. It is easy to vacuum and take care of.

One word of caution you do not want to steam clean or apply lot's of moisture to carpet to clean it. Heavy steam or lots of water could have negative effect on the glue holding the carpet to walls.
Hi Robin: Think about using a Dirt Devil vacuum. The kind your would use on stairs. They might come in electric or battery style.-Mary Lynn K.

Monica:
I found a place under the sink in mine where I hung a 12-volt canister-type vacuum. Put a hose down to the kickspace by the floor and ended it with a plastic flange for the hose. Hard-wired it, so that all we have to do is pull out a flexible hose just long enough to reach everywhere in the trailer. Kind of like a central vacuum on the cheap. With the long hose the resulting suction is pretty weak, but enough to suck the dirt up fairly quickly.

Good part is that it is always available, works even when boondocking, and doesn't take a lot of juice from the battery. No carpeting on the walls though.

Yes, I have one of these, just a generic brand. Got it for about $10. It can be plugged in the cigarette lighter socket and has enough electric cord to reach anywhere in the car, including the trunk. If you felt you really had to vac on the road, you could pull the car close enough to the door of the Egg to reach most places, I would think.
