I'm in love with your house and that's a lot of stuff that comes with it! I'm excited to get a new one, I need to convince my DH to get rid of his Kirby so we don't have 3 vacuums.
I have an older Dyson Animal and I HATE it. I'm 5'3 and 105lbs max. It is huge and heavy, very difficult for someone my size or smaller to maneuver. My husband has no problem with it, but for me, it's nearly 2/3 my height which makes it very hard to use.
I end up using my old (as in, was once my mother's in the early 90s old) traditional bag vacuum instead, because I just hate having to lug the Dyson around.
Looking for a new one that's ergonomic for someone shorter, so I'm watching this thread now.

I'm currently standing in Wal-Mart and came to check this thread because I'm eyeing the dc25. I didn't even think about height, I'm 5' 2" there's a vacuum store nearby I may go to. my mom mentioned the owner really didn't recommend Dyson
I bought a riccar for $389. the guy let me try it in the store, gave me an extra belt a nd a dozen bags. as soon as I pushed it, I fell in love lol
