Generators!

Just bought a toy hauler and need a generator or inverter that's at least 3000 watts. What are you guys using? Want something quiet so I don't piss off everyone I camp near but don't want to spend $2000 on honda or yamaha. $1000 or under is the budget. Sugestions?

Thanks

quiet = expensive.

get two, EU2000's..that way you can run one, or both as needed. you have to buy that parallel kit tho..again..expensive.

you running AC?

Yeah AC. I've seen those parallel honda units. Pretty good idea. No electronics (yet) just AC, fridge/freezer, lights etc.

Robin/Subaru...not less expensive, but on par with quality.

Nothing out there for under a G that is quiet, durable and makes 3000 running watts.

All three of the above utilize Sawafuji generator sets...best on market that I'm aware of.

Honda eu3000 would be my suggestion Double your budget, but quiet and will last a lifetime.

An eu3000 is so heavy. Moving two 2000's is so much easier. Just my opinion. The 3000 is amazing.
