Best vacuum

A lot of us travel with very hairy friends. What is the best vacuum for AS use?

Home Depot sells a wet/dry shop vac thing that fits on top of a Homer bucket! $20 and works well! We all carry an Orange Homer bucket already!

We use a Dyson DC34 hand-held rechargeable. Mounted the charger/holder on the wall just below the bedroom tv and plug it into the tv 120v receptacle. Always handy, works very good, don't need the similar Dyson models with floor attachments.

These come on sale often, retail store coupons often, and they also offer reconditioned products that are as nice as new.

We have a battery operated bagless Hoover that cost about $150 on Amazon. Works great. We charge the Li ion battery when we have electric hookups.

Bought the newer model of this on Amazon the other week. Amazing.

Read about it here. Very popular among Airstreamers. Great for keeping German shepherd hair, food, whatever else my 2 year old messes up. I've got a 9 month old that crawls behind the dog and two year old picking up everything. Straight to her mouth of course. This handheld trigger Dyson is impressive. Bought the little wall dock mount too. Top shelf.

Costco ergo Rapido by Electrolux. Fantastic vacuum we've had for years at home also. Battery powered rechargeable I wall mounted it. It has a pop out hand held portion also. Keeps me sane to help quick clean up dirt that comes in constantly. Maybe will consider a Roomba one day wouldn't that be perfect it could run on its own cleaning the floor while you are mobile to your next destination!

I have an old Shark that is running out of battery juice, thought this might make a good replacement. It comes with a pet attachment.

I have a handheld, 110v Shark and love it. Only issue is that Shark decided to stop making filters for it. Searched on-line and went to untold number of vacuum shops and no one could find the original or any after market filters. We are still searching for a new vacuum.

Lack of filter is one thing that made me buy Dyson handheld.
