Perfect Vacuum for the Star

By , December 13, 2009 9:03 am

I believe I have found the perfect vacuum for our RV.

I have owned two Dyson vacuums. I love them, I can’t say enough about their suction power.

I needed something small and reasonable for the RV. It has to work, it has got to suck, and is bag less.

I bought the Black & Decker Flex Cordless when we had the Storm. It is a great little vacuum for the Storm but too small for the Star.

Then I bought the Shark MultiVac ultra slim vacuum for the Star. The Star has more space and carpeting so I needed something that would clean both carpeting and wood floor easily.  The Multivac is a great concept but cumbersome to use and store. The hose wasn’t long enough to reach in certain spot.

After that, I returned both vacuums to Walmart and bought the Shark Navigator. I like it! Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Powerful suction
  • Bag less
  • 15 pounds
  • Brush roll shut off
  • 1 Dust Brush
  • 1 Crevice Tool

I tested it last night. It works great! It sucks in a good way! 🙂

The Star has its Navigator.

All is well.

    Vacuums are one of those things where you usually get what you pay for. I’m also a fan of Dyson vacuums. Was the smallest Dyson too big, or were you just looking to save some money? I would think that a Dyson would be ideal for maneuvering in a tight space like an RV, with it’s “ball technology.” The DC24 is the smallest model, and the Dyson website shows it at 43.3 x 11.0 x 13.7 (HxWxD) inches and 11/65 pounds, so probably too cumbersome, right?

    Yep, we got it back on Friday. We’ve been in the process of cleaning and moving in again. Sometime soon, she’ll go in for the day to get new tires.

    I was looking at the Dyson DC24 too but for the price, smaller foot print, and positive reviews the Navigator won.

    The Navigator filters are available on Amazon or eBay. Just search for ‘Shark Navigator filters’ and you’ll find a couple sets.
