    you may have good luck with them, I just haven't. both previous vacuum's I've owned were like 150$ and lasted right at 1 year. so I just went for it and bought the 450$ dyson this round..

    tell me about it...but I got to use it some last night and it is pretty fantastic if I'm honest. if it holds up longer than the others, or at least gets replaced by its warranty..then its worth it.

    8 hours Saturday about did me in with the little one. 6 attempts to get her down for a nap! She wasn't really acting up just more less into everything and just whiny. First time she has really just been a terror for me

    We got ours at Costco and paid about $299.

    Our previous Dyson had to go after my wife accidentally vacuumed up some fresh cat poop, from our 16yo cat. :crapstorm:

    The vortex effect of the Dyson made cleaning it up virtually impossible. :puke: That sh!t was everywhere inside the machine...

    I put it out with the trash for pickup and someone (construction day worker) grabbed it before WM arrived. :facepalm:

    btw for those who don't have bed stiffeners...this guy ended up having to replace his bed because it spread too far and cracked.

    From a structural standpoint, I think the bed rack I have (weld together All Pro) inversely stiffens the bed. I just don't see the rack itself spreading apart at the bed rail level. That being said, I don't ride around off road or on road with the tent mounted. Only when we go camping. Thoughts?

    I agree. I believe bed racks, or bed bars do act as sort of bed stiffeners/supports. It's usually the camper shells, which also flex, that cause the bed spreading.

    For me, 100$ for never having to worry about it was worth it..

    yeah the stairs was a game changer for me for sure. also being cordless is great, though you can't vacuum the whole house on one charge. the time it saves though I'm more than willing to hit a room or two or whatever every couple days and not lump vacuuming the whole house into one day.

    Yea as long as the rack doesn't have a constant load on it all the time you should be fine. But when you have the money i would just go a head and get the bed stiffeners just to be safe rather than sorry.

    Well yesterday when I was working on the tire carrier, I decided to jack the front end up and check for play in my wheel bearings. Discovered my Driver side Front is toast. Ordered a pre assembled hub with bearing and all the seals from eBay. The seller uses all OEM components so I'm hoping for a an easy swap when it comes in. Here's to hoping that this is the source of my incessant "humming" coming from my tires.
