I"m not disputing that Honda and Yamaha generators are great; they are!

However, my Boliy which has an easy 1000 hours of use on it over the past 4-5 years cost me $800-$1200 less than your Yamaha.

The money I saved allowed me to buy other goodies for the camper. BTW, your Yamaha is rated for 2800 continuous watts and my Boliy is rated for 3000 continuous watts.

I'm not a dealer or have any financial interest in Boliy. I'm just a very satisfied customer that likes sharing positive reviews with others.

Hint: The Boliy is a clone of the Yamaha except it has a German designed inverter that is a wee bit more efficient resulting in an extra 200 watts capacity.

If I were in your shoes, I'd rebuild that Yamaha engine when it gets tired instead of investing in a new generator.

Wow! Lot's of good and useful info to go through! I appreciate everyone's thoughts, especially since you've all been "on the front line" with these things. Thank you again!

I also have the Yamaha ef3000iseb and its rock solid. Great piece but it is a bit heavy. Like the large gas tank too.

+1 for the Champion 3100.

If you read this thread:

impressed with Champion 3100 inverter generator

You'll find some useful info, including my early trials with a bad carb, what Champion did to make it right, and my buddy and I installing a set of off-road tires on it. It's a good read if you're considering the 3100. I'd buy it again.
