Yes the DD is noisy, but it works very well. I drilled a couple holes behind the bathroom medicine cabinet to mount a hook on the bedroom side. I fabricated a metal coat hanger into a hanging bracket for the DD (with hose). Now it's up in a corner in the bedroom, out of the way.

Oreck for the carpet. It does a great job, and a Shark steamer for the tile. The steamer does not leave any chemical residue.

Missed the hose,
Since we were right in the Walmart lot when my wife found that the less expensive Dirt Devil she bought had no hose, she went back and exchanged it for the + $10 model.
(Thats why I suggested reading the boxes)!

I use a Hoover LiNX Cordless Stick Vac and matching hand vac. They use the same long lasting powerful LiON batery pack. Works great. And the cordless feature allows me to use it while boondocking.

Dyson has come out with an upright rechargeable for carpeted and non carpeted floors. It can be broken down so it can be used as a car vac and is bag-less. I haven't seen them in stores as yet but I'll bet it's pricey. It also comes with a wall mount.

Dyson all the way, what it picks up compared to any other vac is crazy! Works flawlessly, its pricey, but so worth every cent. The smallest upright takes up very little space.

My wife likes the Bissell 3 in 1. Small, very light weight but does a good job.

We have a Shark as well but ours is corded, Seems to work well enough on carpet and vinyl. Also use to remove cat hair from sofa. LOL

We finally gave up on the central vac system in our coach (Maxum2000/Dirt Devil) and bought a mini-Dyson "all floors" ball model. It is both amazing and disgusting how much "stuff" it picks up in our small area!!

It's a Dyson DC-35.

Dyson DC35 Multi floor Vacuum Cleaner | Dyson.com

Their website claims 15 minutes on high (normal) power setting and 6 minutes on "Max" power setting.

DW bought one a couple of weeks ago at a local Best Buy for $299.99 and it works GREAT! I haven't used a stopwatch to check how long it runs, but, I'd guess that their advertising is accurate. Further, it really sucks! And I mean that in a good way. Easily enough battery to vacuum the entire coach (all 41 feet) and works equally well on the tile and carpet.

It does seem expensive. It works GREAT! (I know, I already said that.)

Take care,
Stu

Eureka model 439 Pet Lover Bagless. About $65 delivered from Walmart online. It's small and packs nicely under the dinette seats and cleans up our Labrador's fur nicely.

Based on Consumer Reports, we replaced the 26-lb cast aluminum clunker in the stick house for an 8-lb Riccar. Works a treat, and it's US made. No great bells and whistles (except HEPA quality bags), just a first rate performer - note we have 2 Labs!. It was around $200 2 years ago.
