Generator help

Hello to all,
Got a question on portable generators.
Looking into the champion 73531i portable 2000 watt, for sale at Sams club. Than I saw the same at Walmart but with different number (CXP2046). I can't find that model number anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas if it's the same unit?

Thanks

Sam's carries the 2000w inverter Champion but i've NEVER heard of it being sold at Walmart. not on any RV forum.

Yes I did the online search, so maybe not in store but online. Still confused about the difference in number part.

Often, Wal Mart will use their own part numbers for items that are also sold at other retailers. Maybe so they can identify the item as being purchased from them.
Same item, different part number, welcome to Wal Mart.

The number I see on the Walmart site is CXP1046. Looks the same to me and the specs appear to be the same.

I think they do that so if you try and price match they can turn you down because they say it is a different model number.

I've also seen people buy at Sam's Club and try to return to Walmart for a markup. I think most of these small inverter generators are made by only 1 or 2 companies (aside from top line units). I have a 3000w Dometic that I've seen with at least 6 different names on it.
