Nick, that vacuum looks very compact and could be mounted inside the coach. Do you have idea of price?

The Nutone systems must be a little shorter than the Hayden system I have here at home.  The Hayden is 34" tall which really pushes the limit for bay height by the time you have clearance on top for the ventilation and clearance to remove the dust bin.

I've spent way too much $ on vaccums, still can't get it right.  I started with my old sears shop vac.  great suction, 2" hose, will suck up a shop rag or any small mammal if you're not careful.  Way too big to drag through the bus, hose is tool short to do much with it.

Next I got one of those hang on the wall with a long hose.  The hose was not quite long enough, and the power sucked (not enough).

Next I bought a backpack vaccum from Lowes, and while pretty good, it does have its draw backs.  The cord is just a little too short for me to go from end to end.  The backpack idea is great, but between me and pack its still a little bulky and I run into stuff while trying to get to all the places I need to. (or I'm too fat, or my aisle is too narrow) The kiss of death came when I lightly bumped it and it opened up, spilling all the dirt from the previous 6 months all over my front cartpet, part of my drivers seat, my laptop etc.  Very frustrating, and never again!

The Dometic seems like its just a re badged Intervac, web page is
http://www.intervacdesign.com/category/1&CFID=205425&CFTOKEN=36454487/Vacuums.htm  It looks like a nice vaccum but not exactly what I was looking for.

The dirt devil seems a little less expensive, better specs. I just ordered the Dirt Devil RV central vac.  Camping World has it for $410, reduced to $332, or $299 for being a club member.  I bought it for $250 from RV upgrade with all attachments.  hopefullly its good, I'll keep you posted.  http://www.rvupgradestore.com/

Hi Jim,

Dometic owns Eletrolux. They devloped this vacuum about 15 years ago.

Dometic has now sold the mfg. rights and sales leads to Intervac out of Florida.

All parts now go through Intervac.
