I would love that generator but not for 1800 bucks. I do have access to a louder commercial one. But perfer not to use cause of noise. Unsure what to do.
It sounds like your dry camping and/or boondocking will be infrequent and for short durations. If that is the case, you don't need to make a major investment. If you don't believe your situation would warrant the use of the A/C or microwave, all you would need is a Honda EU1000i to run the television, a few misc items, lights and keep your battery charged. A used one would not be that terribly expensive. If you could find a good deal on a EU2000i, it would allow you to later purchase another one and parallel them. Later when you replace your battery, at least get the largest capacity one that will fit your battery tray or consider a dual set-up.
You don't have to do it all at once. Start small and make sure you are going to enjoy it and if you do then start the "boondocking project".
I can currently go about a week. With a family of four that is about the limit of my holding tanks. I am usually still good with everything else, but when the holding tanks are full, its time to go.
