This reminds me of the "should we get a washer dryer for our RV"?
The guys here (most of the posters) will say naw dont need it, never giving the wives a opinion,I was ambivalent still dont care but our new to us Newmar came with a washer/dryer - wife loves LOVES it.The vacuum was the same I thought the built in was cool (18 attachments!!) what guy doesn't love attachments ,her ....not so much.
she loves the dyson it comes with a couple of attachments she only uses one ,I like it - unsnap the handle and use it in the basement or car .
no more emptying the DD bag - which was constantly and they are hard to find and $$$

We currently have a Miele canister vacuum and was looking to upgrade to something more permanent. I have a Roadtrek 210 so space is a factor. I was going to go for the Intervac Compact RV Vacuum, it seems to have enough power and the size is right. Does anyone have experience with that unit?

Any recommendations?

As I mentioned above, I installed an Intervac. It has an insane amount of suction, as good as the shop vac in my garage or built-in Beam vac for the house. After 5 seasons, the Intervac bag hasn't had to be replaced yet and we use it regularly. It mounted easily in the back of the dinette seat at floor level and is recessed. Recommended!

Note that the Intervac draws 12 amps and that if you don't have a spare breaker slot, you'll need to buy a tandem breaker.

We picked up a Shark Rocket stick vacuum recently. We've got an vac system in our Silverback, but it's a PITA to vacuum with and I don't like the way it does the carpet areas. We really like the Shark and picked it up at Sam's for $169 while the same model (S351/V345 - same model, but Sam's is the 345) was $219.99 elsewhere.
