It is really nice to have a dedicated vac for your car/truck right next to your rig- my truck is always clean on the inside.
I looked at several- almost chose VacuMaid GV30- thought it would be cool (but expensive). In the end I went with a Ridged shopvac and a 25' hose. I park it in the front right corner of my garage and have a garden hose mount to keep the hose managed.
The hose is long enough to reach all parts of my truck without moving the shopvac which is nice. But what is nicer is when my kids want to vac their cars they just pull up to the garage and the hose is long enough for them to vac-again without moving the unit itself.
I decided against the wall mounted unit for basic utility. There are lots of other jobs around the house that a movable shop vac and a 25' hose work well on- $100 cheaper too.
