    Meeeeeeeeeeee I love my little Kipor
    Its over 14 years old now and gets used way to much really for charging my plane packs
    its never had a plug/pull cord and last year at the Nationals it started to play up running the caravan but kept going just not sweet like it had been
    turns out it was the fuel pump,when reading the tec it should be changed every 2 years lol and had done 13 years so very good in my book
    yes Honda are good as have a EU20i as well but unless I am flying the 100/150cc I always grab the Kipor
    you can buy 4+ Kipor,s for the price of 1 Honda
    how many years do you think you will need a generator for and do the maths ;-/

    For 3 years I have used a harbor freight 800W generator. If I set it on the other side of my trailer where people are not at you can just barely hear it. A month ago my current employer gave me a 2000W Honda. So now I have to decide what generator I want in my trailer now. The Honda is a great generator but the smaller one is just that, smaller and does everything I need. But I may change a few things in my trailer and may need more power. time will tell.

    I have the Ryobi 2000 watt generator as well and have been very pleased with it. I wish it came with the cap to make it extended run as it will only last for about 4-5 hrs when I use it to run a small portable a/c for sleeping in a tent. That can easily be changed though and one rigged up so that it will basically run for days at full power.

    I know a few other guys who have this generator as well and they have used theirs more than mine and have been pleased as well. I think for the price you can't really beat it. One of the guys uses his to power his 42 ft camper (except a/c then he uses a bigger 5k generator) but it will run everything else just fine and last all night long.
     
  5. When I go to an event for more than a day I just take my generator from the house. It is way overkill and a little louder, but at 5500W I can power anyone that needs it. It is bigger, but I just put it in the front of the trailer and I set it in front of my truck and run my 3 way extension chord to where I need power. It will run all day and then some like clock work, unless you forget to put stabile in the tank for the winter :( Then you end up with crap in the bowl and have to drain it before it will start :)

    Plus 1 on the Ryobi.....I have one as a backup to my Toyhaulers Onan......While it wont run the AC....it will run everything else. It is only a little bit louder than a comparable Honda and is just as reliable so far.....
