just happened to see it and was surprised how enclosed and compact it was. things have really changed in the past 30 yrs.
as far as noise, i would like to see a direct comparison. sense i have reduced hearing, i would like to see that on a meter. may not be able to compare from memory or different locations within a campground. like to see them side by side and heard from the same location.
for me, a gen doesn't make sense...not enough use. cost of operation also blows me away. i can see it for someone that dry camps though.
this is way off topic but...after hurricane rita, there was a report of someone that woke up to no electricity. he heard the gen running and went out to check it. someone had swamped out his gen for a lawnmower.
