Talking Christmas gift help

My wife wants a new cordless vacuum for in the camper. What is the best cordless vacuum for pet hair/dirt? Of course I have searched the net and get a wide varitiey of ideas but I was looking for first hand advice. I'm Trying to be budget minded as we only camp 5 or so weeks a year. Thanks for any input.

We use the red Dirt Devil that sits in the base to recharge. It does a pretty good job. About $40 as I recall.

X2 Dyson. We have found it to be the only one worth a damn. The others, all varying prices, just didn't seem to work for us.

The problem with anything cordless is the limited run time on a charge and the longevity (life span) of the battery. If you can get a replacement it is usually almost the original price of the tool. The holding capacity of the dirt chamber on the cordless vacs are limited. We travel with a yellow lab and a jack. The lab provides enough tumbleweed to knit a sweater. Tried a small corded shark vac without a power head and it took too long so we will now carry the canister dyson from the house. There should be an option for no carpet throughout!

My wife replaced everything she had for vacuuming with a "SharK",even her Dyson got sent to the church resale shop.
However,you posted this was a Christmas gift.trust me,just buy her one and get something that isn't an appliance for a gift.Life will be oh so much happier for you.
I have been looking for mine a new fishing reel or maybe a new rifle,LOL

We were not happy with cordless vac. The battery is hard to keep charged and a bear to replace. We use a Shark Navigator plus from Walmart. It is one of the few appliances we tote back and forth to the house, my wife likes it so much. Like $130.

Words of wisdom: Never give your wife a vacuum for Christmas or any other holiday.

Getting one's better half a vacuum for Christmas!

That said, equipment wise, we have an old Regina stick vac but I use the broom more often. We drag the Dyson in from the house after a trip.

I know I wouldn't buy it if she didn't ask for it . We are in our 40s and don't really need much. We usually just go buy what we want, so if she asks for anything for Christmas she gets it. Yes I guess we are spoiled.
