One note, find a way to vent it to the exterior as the exhaust will blow any dust that may be anywhere nearby. Currently mine exhausts to my 5er's basement instead of outside - an eventual mod to correct.

Best of luck with yours

We have an Intervac rather than the Dirt Devil and are quite satisfied with it. We have thye optional power head, which is great for picking up animal hair (we have a Persian cat).

Intervac now sells their RV specific model under the name Roadvac.

Checked out the Roadvac website link, wondering if the attachments are inter changeable with the Dirt Devil?

We use 1-1/4" attachments, which are fairly standard.

Also, while we don't have it listed on our website, we carry the 'Vac-Pan' that someone else mentioned for sweeping your debris into the vac system. We can provide multiple inlet valve connections and help with custom installations as well. We have remote start units like the DD, and for simpler installations we also have surface mount and flush mount units which can be installed in about 10 minutes.

Thanks for considering the Intervac.

Willa used a Dyston vacuum cleaner. the one with the ''ball'' thingie on the bottom. It worked really well and it was small enough to fit into the back room closet after she threw out some of my clothes. all the ''attachments'' are on the vacuum so there is no problem there and it dont take ''bags'' . We finally had hardwood floors put in everywhere and we use the Vacuum at home now.
I told Willa that we could just use a ''Leaf Blower'' but she said I was stupid.

Anyhow. put in hardwood and you dont need a Vacuum. Problem solved.

Thank a Vet for you freedom this Nov 11........

Im done.....

Glendale (Titanium) seemed to have a knack of installing the vac in strange places. Ours was in a kitchen cabinet. Others were in one of the steps leading to the bedroom. I would think these units would need an adequate space to exhaust properly in order for the suction to work right. I found ours worked better when we left the cabinet door open when it was operating. The vac in our new rig is in the storage bay and is a much better location as far as noise and venting is concerned. The 'dust pan' feature on our new rig is also very convenient.

As others mentioned, we will take the house vac out to the rig for a really deep cleaning after a long trip.

Well the DW is happy as a lark! Her Dirt Devil arrived yesterday and I installed it today. She gave it a test drive and it passed her approval. Much more suction than our other heavy portable which she has already removed from our coach. I installed it mid way in the coach and it easily reaches both ends of the 40' DSDP with plenty of stretch hose to spare. Even used it down the stairs. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a built in vacuum for their coach. We have stored all the attachments in a chest we use as a sofa table, so life is good again! Thank's to Rvupgrades for their fast delivery.

i installed the "Intervac" that we purchased at the Rally this year, it came with the power bar and almost 40 foot of hose. we got the model where you can mount it inside a cabinet and just open door and use the hose. (there is some fotos on this forum somewhere of another install of this model) did not have to do any modification or cutting to the cabinet at all. it picks up the dog hair very easily, even without the beater bar. in fact it was a little lower price than the Dirt Devil.
