It all boils down to preferences, there is no right or wrong or better ! We camp mostly in national parks with no hookups. Just trying to be good neighbors with the tree huggers . For myself I could get by with a 2,000, and it worked for our pop up. With a hardside less air circulation and the dw demands AC ! Not gonna fight that one !

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.

The 699.99 is on Costco Canada site. That would explain the higher price.

Harbor Freight has a nice 2000 watt inverter generator for $499, but no 2000 watt gen set will run your AC in hot weather

Ah, that explains it. Apparently they don't sell the 2000 watt unit in the U.S.

Yeah, that's one reason why I was comparing the 3100/2800 units in a previous post. In the south where it appears the OP is, that a/c will be needed before you know it.
