Default Perfect RV Vacuum

I've been meaning to post this for a while...if you're looking for a good, small vacuum that stores easily and works just as good as a full size corded vacuum, these little dyson's are incredible.

http://www.dyson.com/vacuum-cleaners...59/animal.aspx

The vacuum in our FC works fine (well it works as good as it did when it was new as I took it all apart, cleaned it, etc...) but it just doesn't have the power it needs (I thought about replacing it with a shop vac).

The dyson is real versatile as the tube comes off and there are different "heads" you can use for different situations. Just thought I'd pass this along as these little dyson's are the real deal!

For the money they should come with a nice looking young lady to run them

It's a great vacuum, not as good as the built in we had in the 93 but quick and easy to get out. We still want to install another built in.

I was going to say I've already got two and that's plenty!

I've been thinking something like this.

When we bought our BB the seller was firm on the price. SO, I had to resort to value added items like complete service (with an additional one down the road), all punch list items repaired AND a Dyson Animal along with all the coach cleaning supplies anyone could ever want.
We love the vacuum. Hung the vacuum head and accessories holder in the bathroom near an outlet so it's always charged. Takes up very little space.

If you are looking for a built-in model you should check with Rob Robinson. He and someone else put in a very cool one a couple of years ago and I especially liked the little door that opens at floor level if you just want to sweep some animal hair and dirt into it without getting out the whole hose assembly.

Thanks for the vote Jim but the vacuum many of us have is from research done by Peter Haggins. Pete likes to research things well. It took him three years to research the Samsung fridge many of us have. The vacuum only took a years research. He found that there was a lot of hype (air watts, bowling ball lift blah blah blah) He finally determined that water lift was the factor he was going to judge by and went on to compare all vacuum contenders with how well they lifted a one inch column of water. Randy has or had one. Thomas has/had one. Terry had one etc etc. Many of these guys change their buses like they change their socks so they should consider not putting in a central unit VBG. The vacuum we all put in is an Allegro and here is the link that will take you to some of the info on an install
