I did some research and heard crosleys were apparently a cheaper version of a commercial hoover just under the brand of crosley. So heres a quick story: I was at my gym which is in part of an old warehouse. I saw a Hoover Turbopower 4500 (I still waiting if I can still take it) and I heard the owner of the building where my gym is had 200+ commercial properties and I was guessing that if they kept an old commercial vacuum by Crosley. Remember I am only assuming this.

I have only seen one of these at a furniture/appliance store in the 90s.It was a standard red Elite with hose and attachments.The only difference was the name printed on it.The Crosley name seems to have started with the Shelvador refrigerator that had,guess what,shelves on the inside of door.

It doesn't matter what it is and what other people say, what matters is if you like it and enjoy it. Think for yourself, don't base your life around someone else's opinions.

If it's a 'vault' maybe.

I think I might have one of them.  I was amazed that Hoover labeled "Crosley".

That would be cool to see. The only private labeled Maytag Hoovers I've seen were the Triple S ProSpec units. I haven't heard good things about it.
