Dirt Devil Central Vac

Considering purchasing the dirt devil central vacuum system for our 364. Does anyone have any experience with this product? Is it worth it as opposed to just having a compact vacuum stored in the basement or under the master bed?

I installed one a a few years ago in my Georgetown 378TS.
If you have kids or camp in the woods or beach it is a convenience.
Not much to install is you mount in one of the outer compartments near power and access to install hose outlet close by.

Here is a few pictures of mine.

I installed one in our 5th wheel not long after we got it. It works very well. Probably as good, if not better, than most compact vacuums. Ours came with a mesh bag that holds the hose and all the attachments and we store that in the cabinet under the sink. Considering you have to store the hose and attachments, it doesn't save a whole lot of space compared to a compact vacuum but it is much more convenient provided you store the attachments bag in the coach. The hose that is provided is pretty long but can be a little difficult to manage when it's fully extended so I would recommend installing the unit at a mid point area of your coach if possible. You'll wrestle less with the hose plus you'll make sure you can reach all areas.

I just got the Dirt Devil Vroom edition with retractable hose, so no storage needed. They are hard to find in a kit, the only place I found was at RVUpgrades, amazing price too!

Don't buy the tool set, it comes with it even though it is not shown. I'm installing this weekend so can't review yet.

We had it installed last year, and wife loves it. It covers all 40 feet of coach, and picks up well. Good luck!

I have had it in my amazon cart for a while now ...I want to pull the trigger too. Right now it is over $300 but I have seen it in the $250-$275 range.

I installed one in my fifth wheel. Pretty easy install- need to be able to screw it down + get access to the canister to empty the bags. Then it's the hose + a lightweight connector to somewhere inside to plug it in at.

It's not a great vacuum but it's very convenient. We hang the hard hoses in the bathroom with our Swiffer and broom. And I bought a vacuum hose holder from IKEA and hung that inside of a cabinet.

We have friends who have one and then later bought a Dyson. The Dyson outcleaned the central vac by a lot. BUT, theirs is bulky and lives in their living room.

I installed one in our Flagstaff 26RLWS TT and we loved it. So much so that I pulled it out when I traded the rig for our Pursuit and have it sitting in my shop waiting for me to get a chance to install it in the new MH. Seriously looking at the Vroom accessory - not having a hose to stow somewhere looks like a big plus.

Dyson Dyson by far is the best. We had a red devil in our Avion FW. When we bought our Dynamax FW it come with a Dyson battery operated. It had a lot more power and I started vacuuming myself LOL
It takes a lot saler place then the hose and it's very handy. Never need the bag to replace.
It's your choice
