Hi,

does anyone know what vacuum these bags are designed to fit?

Designated 20_5007.

Is this for an RCA Whirlpool Kenmore? Looks like some sort of off-set design.

Nope. Those are 5010 bags in the Whispertone.

NO

Whirlpool Imperial bags are the same as 5009 Kenmore bags, they are U shaped, 5008 bags are for the First Whispertone, 5010 for the second.

Perhaps the 5007 bags are actually meant for the Whispertone cleaner, shown in Reply #1? Somehow the bag that is fitted in that photo doesn't appear to sit properly.

I presume that the motor is offset to the side; therefore the 5007 bag would be offset to the opposite side, expanding to fill the available space.

It is also not unknown for a bag to be redesigned during the life of the machine. That happened to the Hoover Aquamaster/Aquaplus/Module900 machines. The original Hoover H16 bag was similar to the long Kenmore 5007 design. It was redesigned to the format shown in the pic, below.
