I have an EU3000is Honda and like Herk if I had to do over, I would have a pair of 2000w Honda's even with giving up my electric start and the fact I have run almost 20hrs on a tank of gas. I believe 2 2k Honda's would be abit noiser than my 3000 but I suspect the A/C on the trailer would make more noise than the gennies running. And as to recalls on the 2000's well at least Honda did a recall on them like any good company would. It do not make them a bad genny. I have seen brand new China knock off units that had the 110 plugs wired 220 and let me tell you that made for pretty suprised owners when all the smoke came out of their devices as they didn't put a voltmeter on the units when they first ran them.

I have a Boliy as well. I am very happy with its weight, lack of noise, power, and price. There is no dealer network like Honda or Yamaha so finding a Boliy certifed shop is not possable, but on the other hand any small engine shop can work on them so it is not really an issue. Did I also mention there are a number of extended run kits for them so that you can run them for days.

I would think you could do better price wise than Camping World. Try Wise Sales online. There are others as well.

I purchased my Honda's at a local dealer. They came very close in price to anyone on the net. I was really more interested in service after the sale and also giving my business to the local " little guy". The other thing to consider is service and parts when your on the road. You'll find Honda dealers most anywhere.

I did have one issue early on with one of my units. It was an electronic part deep inside the unit, very expensive, but the dealer took care of the warranty 100%. It was something very unusual, as a matter of fact an electronic part they had never replaced before... weird.

I'll have to say the very first time we used our Honda's was in Tennessee @ Loretta Lynne's Amateur National MX Race, 97 to 100 degrees and matching humidity all week long. The Honda's were flawless.

For extended run time you can make an extended run fuel system very easily.
