As I have gotten older and lived and learned, I have become one of those guys who has learned that buying the "best" you can buy of a product usually pays off in the long run. I did a lot of research after our 2000 Honda died after 5 years of hard use. I found nothing but good reviews of the Champion 3100 inverter generator. As I said in an earlier post, I paid $600.00 for it. The Hondas and Yammies were well over 1K for a 3000 watt generator. I decided to give the Champion a try. I made a very good choice to go with the not considered "best" brand. 4 years now we have been running the Champion all year long. We winter camp so it will run all night on a tank of fuel and we never hear it. I sometimes expect to wake up and find it has quit running, but it never has. We have camped beside Hondas and Yammies of similar size and there is not a noticeable sound difference. Spend considerably more if you feel you must, but I can't see me buying another Honda.
