Hi all. Just wondering which vacuum cleaner if any everyone uses? I personally use the handheld dyson and the question popped into my head as I was cleaning tonight!

We also use the hand held Dyson. Works great with strong, consistent suction and stores easily. A little expensive to purchase initially but worth every penny. During the winter we use it at home to quickly clean up in the kitchen rather than getting the full size Dyson out of the closet.

We installed a Dirt Devil central vac system. Very pleased with it up to this point.

X2, just store the hose and the power head in the drawer under the couch. Super good vac. & love the 35' hose.

Have a central vacuum system in the trailer. Use our Kirby 1 or 2 times a year to fluff the carpet better. We vacuum after every trip, even if it is one night, grass burs. Got to get them out.

Up until now its been a stick vacuum while on trips (dust buster with a handle). Between trips, we'd take out our home vacuum and give it a good once over.

I've got a central vac in my garage here at home waiting to be installed. Just need to get the 'roundtoit' together to do it.

I bought an Oreck upright from Costco on sale and it came bundled with the little handheld canister vac with attachments. I love the upright because it's so light and the rotating brushes do a great job of lifting the nap of the carpet. Only downside is the space it takes up in the under bed storage. The handheld canister vac is nice, too, because it came with a telescoping wand which is useful for getting at the dust in the crevices around the cabinets and is great for a quick touch up of the vinyl flooring.
