Well, I'm going to be the lone ranger here. We have the built in vacuum and really like it. Yes, the toe kick thingy is great but the vacuum itself works great and I only have to store the hose and attachments. Yes, it has a carpet attachment and works well but we tore out most of our carpet and have vinyl tiles. We just have carpet on the slides and under the bed.

Chocolate and vanilla .....

We have a dyson and the yellow jacket central vac and I use them both. They both serve a purpose. I use the central mostly like a shop vac, in the garage (we currently have a toy hauler) or in the basement and I also like having it for vacuuming the truck out after a 1000 miles of two Golden Retriever's shedding their fur.

And which dyson are you going to buy? Did you know they are now up to V10 ($700 for top V10 model)?

We too deleted the central vac in favor of the Dyson stick vac. We ordered an additional outlet in the closet to recharge the Dyson. The Dyson works great and the space left from the deleted central vac leaves more room to install the electric Cheap Heat (another great option).

A few years ago our local 'hometown' Lowes had a close out on one of the older models, picked up two for $75 each.

One is still in the box in our basement and the other has gotten quite a bit of use in the camper. I'm hoping there is an outlet already in the closet for - I didn't think about that when ordering.

I had installed a new central vac in my trailer just before I sold it and ordered the DRV, so pulled it with hopes of selling it. Instead, I installed it in the corner under the bed, tapping into the junction box for power. It worked better having 2, instead of pulling the big hose from the power center to the front. We also purchased a hollow/storage footstool and stored the hose and all accessories there for the main unit, and the bedroom stuff went in one of the drawers..........Then we discovered Dyson! I bought the Dyson V8 Absolute and both of us love it. I ordered a second wall mount/charger and after moving the ME-RC up to the top of the power center cabinet, installed it just below it. So, all the hoses, attachments, pipes, have been removed. We absolutely love the Dyson Absolute. Anyone want to buy two central vac units?

So my spare new Dyson in the basement is in service .....
Prepping to leave on our first trip of the season 2 days ago I found our trailer Dyson DOA. Old-new put to work.

Dyson has so many models now, and they are all pricey. The newest 10 looks like a true corded replacement, but until we actually get to pick one up and see how ergonomic the new style is, I’ll be using our ‘Digital Slim 2’, and hopefully the central vac ordered in the new rig will still be something I use.
