Look for a rainbow vacuum.

They use water as filter medium and many folks prefer bags so they can be found for cheap.

They also make a room air cleaner that uses water which also works well.

Leave it on then get an electric leaf blower and hose everything down and leave door open and blow fresh air in until most dust exits then leave rainbow running with doir closed.

Water will be mud later.

Deep cleaning carpeting, upholstery, mattress's, drapery, etc. will remove most, but I'll never again use a DIY carpet cleaner. It leaves too much water in the carpet and padding to dry quickly. This promotes mildew and mold growth. Stanly Steemer and other major carpet cleaners will clean everything stuffed, padded, or upholstered in the RV for less than you imagined. When we had our 5er carpeting cleaned last time it cost us $70, and everything was completely dry next morning. Of course we left a few windows and roof vents open and a box fan running all night.

If you have allergies, you might consider products used on pets, like the no dander shampoos or sprays. Also consider a dust mite spray. They can actually hatch and go active after being stored for long periods.

Set your cushions outside in the sun to dry them after using the shampoo.

I often do this to my cars before vacuuming. I take my large air compressor with a small metal tubed tip and blow the heck out of the interior. It gets everything out f the nooks and crannies. For something like a Lance camper, I would put on a mask and blow the heck out of it, let it settle and blow it out again. After that, wipe all the wood, plastic and other hard products down with a good dose of Pledge. Clean your cushions and reinstall.
