We have four sharks, bought at Walmart. Great vacs for the money. Just bought the daughter one last week to replace her Dyson Ball. Also bought her a shark cordless. I tried the cordless out and we are getting one for the MH as they will fit under the bed and are very light and compact. We keep the shark in the basement and it is harder to get out. We have one in the Kansas home, one in the MH. And one upstairs and one down stairs in the Vegas home. And now the daughter has two and I will be getting a cordless for the MH soon. Our other daughter got one a few years back, and started the shark craze in the family. They claim to out perform a Dyson, and cost about a fourth the money.

We have an Electrolux Intensity. It folds neatly in a nice storable configuration. It has powerful suction. One draw back is it has a rather small storage bag for dirt, but we still get quite a few vacuums with it before we make a change. It is expensive @$199.99 from this wholesaler. We purchased our at Lowes but I do not see that model there any longer.

We just purchased the shark at home depot. This one is a small hand held. Our rv does not have carpet so a broom and the shark do great. We have the stand up shark vac for the house. Great products.

Kenmore Lime Canister Vacuum Cleaner: Fun with Kmart


We bought one of these. I really am not a big fan of cannisters for the house but for our motorhome I think it is perfect. It has a powered head so carpet is no problem and it will get under almost anything in the motorhome. Money well spent. It also breaks down easily and it is stored in the bed storage under the mattress.

If you have carpet and a vacuum cleaner that has the dirt sensor built in, you would be amazed by how much dirt is in the motorhome carpets and how much is left with a smaller/weaker vacuum.
