Have it and love it. It's quiet. We set ours up within 5 feet of our trailer and once inside, you can barely hear it. If you are talking, you cannot hear it.
At a campground we recently stayed at, the person 5 sites away was running their Honda and we were running our Champion (nobody else was at the campground). You could hear both units from the other person's camp area- slightly. Ours was slightly louder BUT, we were running two space heaters. The other dude was only trying to charge his battery.
We have the 3100 model and it weighs about 80 pounds. Not exactly light but I am able to lift it by myself if necessary. Hubby does most of the moving it around but I have done it in a pinch.
