Of course, if you'd like to tell me what brand and whether or not you are happy with it, that would be nice, but mostly I'm wondering if it is a reasonable question.
Bissell with a bunch of numbers after it. It works great and was very cheap. Why on earth would you put such an irrelevant question on a rental application? I would think you would be more interested in things like credit and felony history.

I have a Rainbow that I bought WAY back in the dark ages (1983?) Yes, it still works quite well, actually even though it needed some repair work a few years back. I also have a little one but have no idea what brand it is.

The thing is, I haven't vacuumed in years. I really HATE to vacuum. But, my house does get vacuumed once a week-not by me. And I have no idea what brand she uses.


I'm wondering how many people have even HEARD of Rainbow vacuums.

*raises hand* I have! you just brought back happy memories of my 1970s childhood; we had a Rainbow vacuum back then. It cleaned really well, but dumping out all that dirty water after vacuuming with it was a pain.

My mil has a Rainbow, it's old and weird. She adds water and some scent to it to make the house smell but I still don't think it cleans as well as ours.

BTW we have a Dyson Animal Ball upright. Had it for about 7-8 years and it's still the beast it was when we bought it.

My mother sold them in the '70s which is where I first learned about them. So, when a friend of ours was selling them in the '80s, we bought one.

Yeah, dumping the water is a pain, which is part of the reason why I hate vacuuming.

If you asked that on the application I'd assume you were going to be an intrusive and annoying landlord so I'd look for a new place to live.

but yes, I do know what I have.
