I'm moving from Washington to North Carolina. Which hoover should I take a convertible 1070 or my Concept one? Also my Kirby D50 or my Heritage II small nozzle?

I couldnt decide...

I love Convertibles and D-50s though, Where in NC are you moving to, I'm in Mocksville which is in the Winston Salem, Statesville, Salisbury area..

No doubt the 1070! The concept is a good cleaner, but it it LOUD! Nothing like the pleasant him of a convertible with triple action cleaning!

You'll be there just in time for peak heat and humidity! Fortunately, the beach is nearby. All kidding aside, I went to college there in the '80s. It's a lovely city, steeped in history.

I've never been there. I've been down on my lucky lately and friends have offered me a job and an apartment in way of room & board for taking over their housekeeping and cooking. It's wwhat I did as a profession. I' a widower with no family or ties to keep me in Wa, so at 62 I'm having the big adventure. Giving away 99% of what I own and heading out in my big vulgar Buick across the country. Some stops on the way and a new beginning! G

Re big vulgar Buick

Well...I have a big vulgar Grand Marquis Mercury!!!LOL, Wilmington is a pretty good drive from here,about 3 1/2 or so hours, but let me know when you care coming east, you will go within 3 miles of my house on interstate 40, I'm halfway between Statesville and Winston Salem,I40 ends in Wilmington...You MUST go to the German Café in the Cotton Exchange building on the waterfront, one of my must do things when I go to Wilmington!...Would love for you to stop by here on your way.
