Help!!

Hello and thanks for reading, possibly helping me. I'm in need of a good vacuum cleaner that I can store easily. Preferably one that can collapse to take up as little space necessary. Any suggestions or info? We have carpet and laminate flooring along with a couple dogs.

We have a cheap stick vac from Walmart. Less than $20, if I recall correctly. It does a "good enough" job while we're away but we do take our home vacuum out for a good cleaning.

I'm looking forward to installing a central vac system.

Would you know how hard it would be to install a central vac? I've looked into that because I think it might be worth the price if the install is not ridiculously hard and it works as advertised

Don't know if you're in a TT or FW, but I'm planning on installing mine under the stairs in my fifth wheel. I have an electric outlet in the area and should just have to fish lines for hookups. We'll see.

My father in law and I planned on doing it soon, but it looks like all of my extra time and energy are going to be spent elsewhere for the next few weeks.

It's all a matter of if you have a place for the canister with electric to that spot or not. I think my area will be cramped to get to, but should be a fairly easy install (famous last words!).

Have the central vac and love the kick sweeper. It was factory installed. I catty a nano Hoover with me for a actual vacuum. It does a great job is ageless and the handle collapses down.

I love the kick sweeper so much my dh install the RV central vac in cabinet in my kitchen he said that it wasn't bad. It also didn't take up much space but in a camper A little space is a lot. Good luck in your decision I hope this helps

We bought this for our RV:

Oreck Ultimate Handheld Canister Vacuum Bundle 743808100182 | eBay

Only problem is that it works SO well I keep it here in the house also!

Edited to add: we bought a refurbished one, and IIRC it was around $50.00 on Amazon. It's very small; less than a foot wide and probably around 18" tall.

Does it work well on carpet as well as hard flooring?

We have a Eureka quickup that we use at home - it is cordless, rechargeable like a dustbuster with a handle - it has a motorized roller head that can be turned on/off - has a dirt catch cup - works well - they also make a corded plug-in model but we preferred the cordless
