    That is exactly why.
    I got that same question a few times now lol but I really wanted cohesion and at the end of the day if shit hit the fan in the outback I could just use the trailers set as spares (this of course would never be ideal lol)

    Yes this is why my trailer will have 37x12.50's on it. You never know when you will need those extra tires. I least I can get my family to a safe place and go back for the trailer later if that's the case.

    Getting a deal is never a bad thing! This is my 2nd Yamaha generator, the first one was the 2400. I stepped down to the 2000 for the weight and overall size difference. I have never had any issues with either of them - highly recommend.

    I would however like to have a solar panel generator someday :)

    Thanks Pcyc! I can't wait for the day I pick it up!

    Oh, well since you opened up the offer.. I would love too send it to you lol
