I use one of the small 1 gal shop vacs. I got it at Walmart. What I especially like about it is you can reverse the hose and use it to fill your inflatable dinghy in about a minute. Done with the dinghy? Now use it to vacate ALL the air, allowing it to be folded and rolled easily.

Oh, and it vacuums great also.
